Observations: This is a beautiful 17" Arch Top in excellent condition. This is the first Calore Model made by Bryant Trenier in 2013. Wonderfully built with an amazingly big sound. It is one of those guitars that is hard to put down. Shows very little signs of play. Frets are immaculate. Includes original TKL hardcase with an appraisal letter from Rudy's Music dated September 2014.
From Bryant Trenier on this "CALORE"
"This began as a custom order, and I have decided to make 3 or 4 more of this model in the coming years. I often work in this manner, as a client will suggest certain tonal and aesthetic preferences, and the inspiration to further “dial in” the design will push me onward. With the Calore I use all my best European woods, maple from the former Yugoslavia and spruce from the Tyrol region of northern Italy. Combined with rosewood bindings and ebony fittings, a striking image and powerful sustaining tone are achieved. Regarding the finish, I shaded the lacquer with a “heated” look - as though it were a flame."
