I just got back from China and while I was there I played a Guo Yulong double top classical guitar.
Fan bracing system
Indian rosewood back and sides
Sound port with wooden Guo Yulong inscription
raised fret board
Overall I was pleased with Mr. Guo's guitar. The guitar was loud, with clear dynamic control, pleasing to the ear, and had a smooth play. Also, the guitar was very beautiful. This guitar was sent to me at my in laws apartment in china, so I was able to play the guitar, as well as compare it to two other guitars.
Mr. Guo doesn't utilize a truss rod, and this gave me some hesitation. I like to be able to change the action on a guitar other than by simply filing the bridge, bone and nut.
Also, I noticed that some of his guitars use a lattice bracing system, but I believe that Mr. Guo has changed his concept to include a fan bracing system. This was the the first Guo Yulongspirite top that I have seen, and I would love to be able to try his cedar top chamber concert model. Does anyone have information why Mr. Guo has used the fan bracing system instead of the lattice bracing system he used before???
