Karl-Erik Gummesson (1910-2000) was one of Sweden’s foremost guitar makers. He learned his craft in Spain in the 1940’s and was deeply inspired by the guitars by Santos Hernandez. During the 50’s he also started building copies of antique instruments such as vihuelas, lutes, baroque guitars etc.
The top of this guitar is of very aged and dark spruce. It has a very powerful yet mellow sound and is a true joy to play.
Back and sides: rosewood
