Charalampos Koumridis is a Greek luthier making amazing modern guitars both lattice and double-top which offer a wonderful musicality. We received our first double-top guitar from Charalampos and the first player who came took the guitar. His double-top is as good as his lattice guitars, not a copy from the German double-top but his own version. You will have to wait a little bit to get a new one. Among the best doubletop you can find!
The luthier Charalampos Koumridis from Greece, will be definitly the discovery of the year end. Whereas we thought we knew all top European luthiers, we discovered an amazing luthier making wonderful traditional, double-top and lattice guitars. All his guitar models are amazing of musicality.
This double-top guitar weight 2.2 kg. The whole guitar is the result of Charalampos analysis and not a copy from the German doubletop. The guitar has a solid cocobolo back and an unusual for doubletop double-side which gives more mass to the guitar and long sustain. The bracing is made with balsa and carbon to bring more brightness to his guitar (doubletop use to be too round and warm).
The balance between brightness and warmness is perfect, the sound is creamy and fat.
