Owner Reviews

Jeff Pontillo #25
  "I have traveled all over California looking for a classical guitar, none have compared to the quality of Brian Burns'. His craftsmanship is exceptional. It's worth the trip to Mendocino just to meet Brian and tour his workshop - let alone play one of his beautifully resonant guitars."

Daniel Roest #24

"I fell for No. 24 when I had the opportunity to play it and experience something missing from other handmade guitars. I had the opportunity to play it in several concerts, and the volume and tone were up to the task. It's beautiful in looks and sound - and I felt the modest asking price made it quite the bargain. I feel lucky to own this unique instrument. Tomorrow I have a flute and guitar concert, where once again No. 24 will shine."

Michael Zelver #11

  "Traditional Flamenco guitars have a playability and sound quality that is very difficult to find today. Very light and balanced, small profile neck, low action and quick sustain, reedy articulated notes. My Brian Burns guitar achieves these qualities. Further, the guitar is beautifully crafted, and aesthetically spot on.

Well worth waiting for!"
