Description

Built by Antonio Sanchez the Gran Concierto De Luxe 2600 is a Double Top guitar of Nomex construction supported by traditional 7 Fan Bracing pattern offering the player greater dynamic range.

First played by Selina and I at the Frankfurt Musicmesse where we fell in love with this guitars clarity and ease of expression.

Now the 2600 is available at our studio bringing a touch of the concert player to our Sanchez range.

I started this review with some sight reading (useful for my next music review) to help warm up the guitar before getting down to the ‘serious’ reviewing, however while doing this I realised that it is actually a good test for the instrument. Playing music that you don’t know means that you are being more spontaneous which in turn really highlights the guitars abilities.

I was really pleased with the response from this Sanchez guitar (a new model for us). She reacts quickly to the player’s demands and already has great projection and range of tone and colour.

Overall the character is bright and lively, with clear articulation across the strings, vivid colours and a real feel of excitement and exploration. In fact I feel that she truly represents that first big ‘step up’ for guitarists looking for more from their playing both technically and musically as they reach higher grades and develop their musical ear.

This was demonstrated clearly when I played Ciaconna by Weiss. The guitar gave me the ‘presence’ that the music demands, full body for the big harmonies, a clear singing treble and a substantial bass with lovely resonance and intensity.

There is a lot of sound to play with here and as I played I felt free to experiment with tone and enjoyed subtlety as well as rousing contrast! The Tarantella by Mertz is a very dramatic piece and also pretty fast. This guitar has good definition and ‘quick’ sound that highlights the texture in the fast passages. I could get the brilliance that I wanted - firm and strong basses with plenty of impact supporting sparkling trebles, and then I was able to easily contrast this with mellow tone and ‘pastel’ colours in the delicate passages with quality sound in the upper register.

I think that this all adds up to a guitar that wears its heart on its sleeve. She is strong and colourful, exciting with firm and vivid tone and quick and easy projection. This is perfect for the player wanting more from their playing since as you hear more you demand more and this guitar is able to deliver more.

I finished my review with some music by Ponce, a theme and variations that has rich and romantic harmony and a huge range of tempo, dynamic and character across the piece.

The guitar gave me great variety, substance and depth. She has a fantastic range of sound, for a guitar at this level with real breadth to her voice. She also responds well to the range of techniques required, for example, clear slurring, direct articulation and balanced arpeggio texture.

As I said earlier she will happily take you to the next level and enable you to hear and highlight more detail, emotion and storytelling in your music – a lot of guitar for the money!
