 This is one of only a small number of a special guitar model made by Dieter Hopf, called La Portentosa. It is unusual in its design; the bridge has small latticed holes, on either side of the tie block. The back of the neck, where you rest your thumb, is made with ebony in place of the usual mahogany and the headstock is ornately carved. The sound of this guitar is also unusual: very bright, with a focused and penetrating quality typically found in spruce top guitars. While the condition is very good with no cracks or repairs, it does show a good amount of playing wear on the top, though with fresh French polish on the top it could look as good as new. All in all, a very interesting guitar from a top level luthier.
