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 art-deco classic 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.

All handmade, the Rosine includes premium features like curly maple body binding, bound pickguard, and solid ebony hardware, including the particularly striking highly figured Macassar ebony tailpiece. A special plus is the D'Aquisto design wedge-adjusting bridge, that transmits string vibration directly to the soundboard through solid ebony, without metal parts.

At a scant 5lb 12oz, the instrument is wonderfully light in weight, and perches nimbly on the lap or the strap, with an open headstock design that improves balance with the body. The gentle D neck profile is easy in the hand, with a fresh high-precision setup over a fingerboard of solid black ebony. With it's finely carved X braced top, the Rosine has a clear, detailed voice, silky and supple, with the depth and warmth one expects from the legendary D'Aquisto design.

We are pleased to offer this remarkable instrument in immaculate, 100% original condition. Meticulously hand crafted, the Trenier Rosine is a rare find from one of today's most high-demand builders. One only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge bronze roundwound strings. The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 4/64" to 6564" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.
