This instrument was built by Canadian luthier Michel Belair, based out of Montreal. In addition to lutherie, Michel's background is as a player who studied in France with Alvaro Pierri and Roberto Aussel. This guitar was previously owned by Scott Tennant, who used it regularly for concerts, both solo and with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, with whom he won a Grammy for their album "Guitar Heros". The sound of this guitar is powerful and responsive with rich basses and thick trebles with a distinctive velvety and silky tone. Michel pays particular attention in his work to the decay and overall sustain of the sound. The sustain on this guitar is quite impressive and the decay is very linear and predictable making the instrument very consistent and balanced when playing at either end of the dynamic range.
