Savio Couto is a professor of classical guitar at the Centro de Educação Musical de Olinda - CEMO. With 25 years experience as a luthier, his work is known and acquired in Brazil and in several other countries, including Portugal, France, Holland, Canada, Chile and USA.

When this guitar arrived in Adam's shop in São Paulo the bridge was lifting slightly so he removed and reglued it, then refinished the top in shellac. You can see traces of discoloration around the bridge as a result of this process. The instrument is now structurally better than new, and that aesthetic flaw is the only reason we're not describing it as in "excellent" condition.
