Description

This guitar has beautiful ‘classic’ looks and a ‘classic’ traditional sound to match helping me to feel comfortable and relaxed straight away, confident in a solid, secure and simply beautiful tone.

It is actually quite difficult to put into words.

Some people may translate traditional as old fashioned. I think that this is a voice from the past with characteristics of strength and purity and enhanced with today’s requirements of balance, evenness and projection.

She has easy playability and tone production meaning that you really don’t have to try to get a beautiful, smooth and silky tone and as I continued to play and to push I could feel the potential in colour, dynamics and projection.

She is well balanced across the strings and very even in tone across the range of the fingerboard. As you would expect from a brand new guitar, especially of this traditional build, the treble needs some time and playing to really start to open and blossom, as I started to feel over the course of an hours playing, especially as I used deeper finger strokes.

Having said this she starts with a directness and purity of sound that speaks of great future potential.

The bass voice is already strong and incredibly focussed producing what I describe as a ‘true’ sound, very firm and with great depth.

Everything is clear and controlled with a lovely roundness to the tone and gentle ‘golden’ resonance in support. This was obvious in Tarrega’s Lagrima where the upper melody sang effortlessly above warm and full bodied harmonies.

The E major Prelude by Bach showed off the brighter side with attack and vitality helped by her excellent definition and purity of tone. I found the musical lines easy to highlight and shape and plenty of fuel in the tank when it came to the long crescendos.

I definitely fell in love with the bass playing Asturias, with depth and intensity combined with concentration of sound and wonderful control helping to make the fast articulation clear and detailed.

She also has a beautiful, rich, dropped D resonance which resulted in a gorgeous, strong yet velvety accompaniment in Capricho Arabe, supporting a smooth, singing treble line that remained even and clear up to the higher registers and through the lovely, cascading lines in the introduction.

The key for me with this guitar is the purity of sound; a consistent, full and concentrated tone that gives great peace of mind to the player and beautiful tone to listen too. This was summed up as I finished with Bach’s Chaconne and Elegie by Mertz.

The Bach travels all over the place and this guitar was able to shape and control the sound without a hint of any ghost notes, odd resonances or popping notes. I really pushed in the Mertz and got lovely colours and textures, depth and musicality.

I certainly enjoyed playing this guitar for an hour and wish her new owner many hours of enjoyment and musical exploration.
