Bert Kwakkel (the Netherlands) is one of the leading classical guitar makers nowadays.
He brings with it 100% devotion to create a perfect instrument. Guitarists from all over the world praise him for his exceptional craftsmanship.
In 2005 he introduced the guitar type Merula Special with neck and finger board made of rosewood!
A cedar and spruce concert guitar, built exactly the same way and whose backs and necks come from the same blocks, soon to compare!
In February 2017 Bert Kwakkel will finish a guitar (Merula Special) with unlacquered back, sides and neck made of Grenadilla, a dense rosewood.
