Michael Silk. Australia.


I have been enjoying the 2014 Marvi guitar (cedar, caviuna rosewood) now for a couple of weeks. Truly, this is a wonderful guitar. It has a striking presence with a strong resonance and sustain. Every note seems to have a clear voice, whether loud or soft, bright or sweet. There is a depth and richness in the basses and the trebles have a brightness with a good measure of sweetness. Even the simplest of music shines on this guitar. And it is a joy to go through my warm-up routine on this guitar.

My particular preference in music favours more expressive pieces, those which move me emotionally. The subtleties that I can get out of this guitar gives ample room for that expressiveness. My grateful thanks to Andres on his wonderful guitar and to Adrian and staff at Stafford Guitar.
