Ricardo Giuffrida testimonial about his 7 strinf guitar built by the luthier Lineu Bravo
“Lineu is an artist. Had he not been a luthier, he would express himself through another type of art. But fortunately he chose the construction of guitars. As a luthier he is amazing. His instruments have a unique style. I’ve decide to purchase a 7 string guitar made by him because I think it is the best instrument ever. Lineu’s guitar is very special for me and it has a unique personality mainly at the Brazilian Music. Besides, he is one of the greatest luthiers in the world. His guitars are masterpieces that represent the Brazilian instrument.”
