Another excellent instrument from one of Brazil's most in-demand contemporary builders, São Paulo-based Agnaldo Luz. The current wait time for one of Agnaldo's instruments is on the order of two years, if not longer. When we sent this one out to our friend Vitor Casagrande to do the video demo of it, he wanted it to keep it for himself! We wrestled it back from him though, so North Americans, too, could have a taste of contemporary Brazilian lutherie at its best.
