Description

This guitar has a wonderfully rich and colourful sound, smooth and responsive tone and fantastic depth and support to her voice, immediately giving you confidence and lots of projection. In fact it really is a case of love at first 'listen'.

There is a great sense of 'presence' and stature here with a clear, glossy and rounded treble supported and enhanced by rich and powerful basses that have lovely substance and intensity. The individual notes are balanced and distinct with focus and clarity across the range. She already has an expansive feel which makes me very excited for her future potential! Birds Flew over the Spire was an excellent warm up and opening 'tester' not only giving me lovely sustain but so much detail within the sonority, for example across arpeggios, and rich, blossoming melodic lines from bass to treble.

It is great to find clarity within a warm and full bodied overall sound, to have the breadth and body of the whole voice and be able to easily highlight and pinpoint individual voices and textures. This was nowhere more evident than in Villa Lobos prelude no.3 where I could achieve a beautiful 'floating' and evolving melodic line in the falling phrases of the second half.

In the 4th Prelude the definition and separation between notes came to the fore, combining with quick response from the right hand to make the melody and accompaniment very clear and enable me to get subtle changes in colour, depth and attack resulting in a wonderful atmosphere and expressive feel. In Milonga by Cardoso the vibrant side of her character took over as I pushed harder for bigger dynamic and tonal contrast resulting in driving rhythm and a compelling sound with particularly magnificent basses and harmonies.

I contrasted this excitement with Variations on a Theme of Django Reinhardt by Leo Brouwer which requires great subtlety and attention to detail combined with freedom of musical shape. I felt that I could clearly communicate my ideas through this guitar. The direct response aids precise articulation and fluid speed, while the definition and essence of sound help smooth lines across registers, wide ranging dynamics, clear textures and very strong musical direction. For me the highlight and perfect summary for this review was Capricho Arabe by Tarrega.

The guitar gave me the exact ingredients needed for this wonderful music; a deep, engaging and gorgeous tone leading to a fantastic sense of drama; tone ranging from soft and sweet through to full and radiant; balanced phrases flowing easily from the lowest to the highest and back with fantastic momentum; easy movement both physical and musical, and a clear and compelling rhythmical shape.

What more could a guitarist wish for!
