2008 David Rouse CD/CSAR
|Back & Sides:
This is an excellent guitar from one of the best younger English makers. It features impeccable workmanship and superb materials, including highly figured and dramatic rosewood. Tuning machines are by Reischl. Sound is huge with a nice color palette. The tone is textured, with ample overtones yet excellent clarity and balance - a wonderful synthesis of the Spanish and Northern European styles. Playability is excellent with a very easy and slender neck profile. Suitable for any size auditorium - also a wonderful recording instrument.
