Of course it’s a spectacular guitar with sound to match. Bright sparkly top end, tight & full down low, with a very focused midrange punch that really cuts. Wonderfully balanced in tone with excellent projection and solid sustain.

Gerard built this one for its one owner in 2005 and it was only ever played at home. It is in excellent, almost new condition. There are some light pick marks below the sound hole, but virtually not another sign of wear on the entire instrument.

Gerard Gilet has been at the forefront of acoustic guitar design in Australia for over 30 years, making instruments by hand for a clientele of serious musicians and professionals. Gilet guitars have become highly regarded and sought after, especially since Gerard has slowed down his output significantly in recent years.

Every one of Gerard’s guitars are wonderful instruments, and this one is another example of his thoughtful design and impeccable workmanship.

Comes in a Monterey brand hard shell case in excellent condition.
