Tino Battiston lives and works in Bouzonville near Metz (north-eastern France). He first trained as a cabinet-maker, and was then apprenticed to Master luthier Kazuo Sato, whose teaching didn’t consist in making the younger man duplicate his guitars but in helping him find his own way.
Soundwise, this 63 cm scale guitar is powerful and projective; it produces a round, full, generous, well-balanced sound with coloured, well-separated notes that sing and fill the space.
Playing can easily be modulated thanks to the instrument's reactive, supple and dynamic response.
This flexibility and a well-drawn neck make it both pleasant and easy to play.
