Jean Luc Joie

2 guitars by Jean Luc Joie (Bordeaux – France).

Jean-Luc Joie (Bordeaux – France), has build high quality classical guitars since 1976. His guitars have been played by some of the leading concert guitarist including Alvaro Pierri, Thibault Cauvin, David Garciarena, Gaelle Solal, Boris Gaquere and duo Sybrandus.
This is his highest model with the unique 'non bracing soundboard'. A soundboard without any brace! His signature construction technique creates a guitar that have a power close to Australian lattice guitars, but with sweet traditional tone color – enough to make Thibault Cauvin switch from his Greg Smallman to a Jean-Luc Joie guitar..
These 2 guitars will be built using 2 sets of Ziricote body and cedar top. The body will utilize a triple layer construction : Ziricote – spanish cedar – Indian rosewood , in aim to create the body as rigid as possible and maximizing soundboard vibration.
