“I received my Berg double top cedar guitar at the end of 2013. The instrument has depth, warmth, clarity of voices in all registers, power and volume. The balance between treble and bass is great with trebles sounding clear and strong. The range of the instrument can easily move from a huge and powerful to a sweet and delicate sound. The well constructed fingerboard and frets allows for a great playability.

I also haven’t experienced any intonation problems. Thank you Hans!”
