Two years of waiting and here it is: Voigt “Espressivo”: an exquisite instrument built by Curt Claus Voigt. This beautiful “Espressivo” model has a very fine antique-coloured spruce top complemented by fine Indian rosewood back and sides. The guitar is all French polished to very high standard. This guitar is notable by its huge volume and projection offered by the fluidly domed back and the very light lattice-braced top. Its sensitivity makes it an extremely nuanced guitar with a grandiose volume, perfect playability and a sophisticated tone. Definitely advised for an ambitious and passionate musician.

Concept
After years of consulting with performers, teachers and students to determine the optimal modern guitar for learning and gigging, we’ve arrived at Modell Espressivo. With this model, we achieved what these players were looking for; projection, balanced and transparent sound quality and timbre, good sustain, easy response and playability.

The Modell Espressivo was described in Gitarre Aktuell as having the greatest projection and durability of any guitar the authors measured, which they attributed to the instrument’s innovative lattice bracing.

Construction
The Modell Espressivo is inspired by the cello, as shown by the arched solid wood back and raised fingerboard.
The top plate is made of cedar or spruce. The back and sides are Indian Rosewood, although Flamed Maple and Cypress are also available as well as other tonewoods upon request.

Special features

Arched back: Like the cello, the solid wood arched back has no bracing. This has a huge impact on the timbre and projection of the sound.

Elevated Fingerboard: Facilitates greater playability at higher frets than a conventional guitar, as the upward angle allows for more pressure and freedom.

Lattice Bracing: This solid wood top bracing provides a balanced sound in all registers.

Sound Port: An additional sound hole in the top attack helps the guitarist to better control his playing. The built-in sound-box inside the body concentrates the sound for the player. Excellent for chamber musicians.

Zero fret: open and pressed strings end with the same material that unifies the sound. Espressivo players agree.

Rosewood bridge with 12-hole tie block: for optimal force distribution (traction and leverage) of the bridge on the soundboard as well as for optimal sound transmission.
