This is an OM size Brondel model, featuring a wonderful cedar top and Laurent’s first venture into the world of soundports, and boy does it pay off. This guitar is loud, sweet, refined, responsive. It’s a joy to play all over the fretboard. The tone tends more towards a modern fingerstyle sound, with plenty of overtones, sustain and a less woody, traditional feel, but we are confident that any player would find this guitar beguiling and rewarding.
Construction is immaculate.

This is one of Laurent’s “essential” range, which are priced more affordably, but it lacks nothing. Appointments may be somewhat simpler, everything else is all there. Especially the TONE. One of the best fingerstyle guitars we have seen, c’est maqnifique!
