Notes: Bryant Trenier is a European trained luthier whose instruments combine traditional design with exacting contemporary standards of craft. Rare among contemporary builders, Trenier is a fine visual designer as well as a meticulous fabricator. The result is an instrument as pleasing to the eye as it is to the ear and the hand.

An 18" Venetian cutaway guitar in the tradition of the D'Aquisto Avant Garde, the Trenier Rosine is carved of exceptional tiger flame maple, with a hand-graduated bookmatched fine grained European spruce top. The cello-grade flamed maple back shows figure in a wonderfully symmetrical pattern, and the rims show a particularly fine vivid figure. With it's finely carved X braced top, the Rosine has a clear, detailed voice, with the depth and warmth one expects from a super jumbo body. The slighly shallower depth however, assures that the guitar is notably comfortable under the arm.

The neck profile is gently rounded and easy in the hand, with nicely crowned medium frets over a fingerboard of solid black ebony. All handmade, the Rosine includes premium features like curly maple body binding, bound pickguard, and solid ebony hardware. A special plus is the DAquisto styled wedge adjusting bridge, mad of solid ebony, with no metal parts between the string and soundboard. Meticulously hand crafted, the Trenier Rosine is an an instant classic from one of our favorite builders. Call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge bronze roundwound strings (.013-.056). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference.
