- Still searching...
This Laguz "The Special" is a great instrument with a very wide range of tones. The ergonomics is great in all the details giving a great playing experience. The build quality is top notch, it's impossible to find a fault in this guitar. The sounds are great in all positions.
The retail price for this baby is 3 456€ (20% VAT included). Yes, the price high but so is the quality so you get quite a lot of value for you money.
In case you are in the Paris, France area, the luthier Egon Rauscher will be exhibiting the Soultool guitars at the Guitares au Beffroi guitar show (www.guitaresaubeffroi.com) from March 25th until the 27th 2016.
Until the next gear review, keep on playing your guitar!
