This guitar is traditionally built in the Spanish style, with a sound crafted to satisfy the modern concert guitarist. It has plenty of power, clarity, openness, and separation to fill a concert hall, but also has a beautiful voice that makes it hard to put down. It is loud and penetrating without being boomy and has great sustain and a rich, but controlled overtone content. It has a lightweight feel, with a big explosive attack followed by a rich sound of big overtones in every note. Made with spruce for the soundboard and Indian rosewood for the back and sides, Andy also decided to use some gorgeous reddish-orange pernambuco wood for the bridge, head-plate and bindings. Overall an excellent and well-made concert instrument by any standard.Photos of this guitar taken during construction.
