Text Box: I played my first Kostal at Healdsburg 2011, but it wasn’t until Mike Joyce from Luthier’s Collection sent this guitar to me that I really got to experience one for an extended period of time. It stayed with me.

Huge bass, articulate highs and mids, great projection, great ergonomics. A gorgeous modern tone without a woofy dreadnought sound.
