Description

Woonsun's style is understated, yet elegant and perfectly executed. A look firstly at the carpentry reveals a worker who understands craftsmanship at a very intimate level. From a woodworking point of view, this is a flawlessly made instrument. Some interesting details include an origami-lotus motif in the central band of the rosette - all wood is "long grain" which gives the rosette more "sparkle" in various lighting settings. Also his subtle use of maple in the tie block, central head veneer strip and throughout the purfling frames the guitar beautifully. A very tasteful and unique look. For tone, his goal is to produce as natural a sound as he can, allowing the woods to be assembled in such a way that they vibrate freely, and be the primary contributors to the sound quality.

This particular guitar is made with a gorgeous set of CSA rosewood for the back and sides - of limited stock (as indicated the label). The soundboard is spruce which enhances the clarity and separation of the voices. At the same time, the tone has a full richness that is normally associated with cedar topped instruments. Although it boasts a weight similar to the Madrid-style makers, it has the loose, quick response found in the southern Spanish schools of Granada and Cordoba. It is easy to play for both left and right hands, and it projects beautifully to fill any sized room. GSI is pleased to be the exclusive US dealer for Woonsun Lee, and we can recommend this guitar highly to any discriminating performer of any level.
