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.
Soundwise, the 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.
