Last year I obtained another instrument built by luthier Darren Hippner.
Built in 2014, this guitar is standard size, with a Cedar top and Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides.
Of the three Hippners I own, this one is by far superior (although I love playing Bach on the spruce top – a copy of Hauser’s 1939 guitar)
My 2014 Hippner has great volume, making it my choice for all of my performances in large halls. Audience members have told my t hat the sound is much fuller that my other two instruments.
It is also my first choice for recordings.
This instrument has a nice combination of clarity and sweetness, making it both a “speaking” and “singing” instrument, all in one.
Moreover the guitar is beautifully crafted, with literally no flaws.
It has become my favorite instrument – one that cannot easily be replaced.
it has received many compliments from my fans during my concert tours.
