This guitar has a lovely clear and rich voice, smooth and warm on one hand, with depth of sound supporting the whole voice, while maintaining strong and clear definition.

She has a ‘mature’ character - full bodied and shapely notes, lovely blending of harmony and a firm sonorous tone that gives easy consistency and great projection. As a player you have no worries about quality. You do not have to try to get a quality tone, however, when you do push and start to play strongly, she noticeable shifts up the gears with intense and colourful sound.

In Abendlied by Mertz I found a lovely response to really light right hand touch, which worked beautifully for the semi quaver sextuplet accompaniment and enabled me to get a great contrast between the charming melody and ‘bubbling’ harmony. Contrasting with this were full and colourful chords in the introduction, the guitar giving me a rich palette of deep reds to golden yellows. She also has a great range of dynamics and subtleties in tone as you move your hand along the strings.

I have emphasised her Spanish warmth; however as I played Bach’s prelude BWV999 the evenness of her voice came to the fore, concentrated tone on individual notes giving me smooth travel through the arpeggio driven forward by substance and depth in the bass. As I mentioned earlier she is a guitar with great maturity, the hard work of evolving her voice from brand new has been done so that you have consistency and ‘body’ immediately available.

The good news is that there is obviously so much more for her to give.

As I played and experimented I was learning how to exploit the potential and particularly loved the amount of intensity and breadth that I could achieve with increasing, even slightly, the depth of right hand strokes.

In Standchen by Mertz this variety is very important. The guitar easily gave three clear voices and responded quickly to the ‘echoing’ phrases between treble and bass melodies. Defined articulation helped to bring out the 3 against 2 rhythms and a great sustain kept the phrases freely singing over the other voices. In fact sustain of sound is another key quality of this guitar adding to all of the features that gives the player a feeling of ease and relaxation.

With Tarantella, my final piece, clarity of rhythm and articulation gave me the energy and drive that I was looking for with lovely expanding crescendos and the impact of her bass voice making the music very exciting to play. In summary this is guitar with a big personality, full bodied, rich and colourful with a consistency and evenness that will allow any player to enjoy making music.
