Hi Adrian,

I recently purchased on-line a lovely Michael Gee 'Torres style' guitar from Stafford Classical Guitar. Stafford Classical Guitar Centre clearly put a lot of love and care into their website and on-line sales. Particularly helpful are the personal reviews, comments and videos of the guitars being played. rather brilliantly, by Selina Copley. I also phoned and spoke to Adrian and Sandra who were very helpful. I had a really positive purchase experience and crucially the guitar, when it arrived, exactly met my expectation based on the on-line review and recording. As an amateur I was unsure about buying an expensive guitar, but playing this guitar has been a privilege and a delight.

Hi Adrian/Sandra,

I have received the guitar today, safe and sound that is. How can I express my ultimate contentment in term of your service etc. From the pricing to delivery everything was tremendous, kudos! And Adrian, thanks for the advise given on some luthiers and their products.

Dear Adrian,

As I promised, here is a little report on the Michael Gee guitar that you supplied for me 2 years ago.
If you remember me I was the fussy left handed customer from Darwin in Australia.

Hi Adrian and Sandra,

Just a note to let you know that the Guitar arrived safely this afternoon together with all the accessories. It was expertly packed and survived the long, arduous journey through the different ports across UK, Germany and China before arriving here. No issue at all. I must admit that initially I had been quite concerned over its handling in transit but the anxiety proved unfounded as the guitar was so well protected.

Hi Adrian,

The guitar is absolutely fantastic! I am simply amazed by the clarity and separation of the notes. The trebles are so sweet and the perfect complement of the basses make this guitar an absolute gem. The neck is so comfortable and the action is low but without buzzing making it so easy to play. This Gee just blows my 2 Australian made guitars away. The best part is that it just gets better everyday. I will highly recommend a Michael Gee guitar.

Adrian,

I have now been playing my Michael Gee guitar for ten days and have found as follows:
Visually the instrument is striking, a vivid contrast of light spruce and dark rosewood set off by bands of red and white striped purfling delineating the form. In its use of pattern and strong contrasts the guitar seems to refer more to the tradition of northern european luthiers than to the mediterranean tradition.

Adrian.

The guitar arrived today. Wow, wow, and wow. The guitar is everything I had hoped for. As loud as it is right now; with quality of sound, as well, I hope you were right in telling me that the guitar would be a bit tight and would mature with age.

Hello Adrian,

Just a short note to say how thrilled I am with the Michael Gee guitar and that the Saverez strings bring out the projection and clarity this wonderful instrument offers yet further.

Michael's guitar is still changing, as I play it becoming more sensitive and responsive. Some things remain the same: it is still piano-like, very even from bass to treble, tight and with volume to spare. When I play it, I'm conscious that it's a work of art; it has a delicate, aristocratic tone that is accessible but not easy (its "default" tone is buttery and smooth. With very small changes in my right hand position, this guitar's voice changes completely.

Recently, the sound of my guitar has become distinctly richer, and the area over the strings that produces great color has spread considerably. Although you'd mentioned that Selina's guitar was "coming into its own" after 9 months, I had no idea that the guitar would continue to change this dramatically. I was pleased before, but now I can only say that Michael's guitar is stunning.

Hello Sandra, Adrian and Selina,

I hope you had a good holiday.
Sandra has been helping me a great deal during the summer, as you probably now, and there has been a fine result, as I will communicate below. Having Sandra helping me patiently at the end of the phone when I asked questions about the Michael Gee helped to enable me to buy it without having seen it and with full confidence.
