Description

 

The finish on this guitar is beautiful, notably a silky smooth neck perfect for thumb movement and relaxation.

I noted straight away the openness of the sound allowing easy projection and volume, a step up from John’s previous guitars. The trebles have a lovely clarity of tone and are very responsive, strong and warm in character with an underlying sweetness for your softer musical side!

The strings do have quite a tight feeling under the right hand fingers at the moment, indicating that she can be played strongly and that there is good potential for much development in her voice.

She does of course need playing in, and as I played I could feel and hear her voice growing in depth and breadth (a real highlight of my job!).

In 'Reflections' and 'By Candlelight' by Andrew York I found a glowing resonance with good dynamic control combined with inner detail and an overall smooth tone.

The treble E is developing a singing and polished tone bringing excellent preciseness to the articulation and rhythmic drive in Canarios by Sanz.

In the gorgeous El Noi de la Mare I could really sink into the bass voice, very strong in support of the soaring melody and growing in sonority as the guitar is put to work. After hearing this I went on to play Prelude no.1 by Villa Lobos and found a firm and lively bass voice, one that could shape this great bass melody and help to give it character.

In Rosita by Tarrega the separation of the voices was evident with the lively and radiant treble lines being supported and enhanced by full bodied harmony and depth in the bass, clarity and balance across the whole and plenty of detail.

This guitar has a journey ahead that is unknown but full of potential for a player who wants more detail, clarity and strength but has not got a lot of money to spend. She is certainly excellent value and in my opinion plays above her price tag.
