The Klaus Keller is an excellent instrument for the advancing beginner or intermediate student on a budget. It is recommended by teachers to their students as an affordable step from a rental instrument, but it is also an very good affordable option for a more advanced player as well. The top is carved from quality spruce, with figured back and sides. Ebony pegs and fingerboard. Our in-house luthiers custom carve and fit a quality Despiau bridge, adjust the pegs and soundpost, and install a Wittner finetune tailpiece and Dominant strings for a quality sound, tuning stability, and playability.
