1986 Richard Bruné #421 Spruce EIRW Classical Guitar
Comments: This is an excellent example of Richard’s work, priced accordingly due to its age, yet surprisingly in very good condition. No issues whatsoever, only evidencing honest playing wear, very insignificant. It also recently setup by Richard himself, one of the best in the business. She plays very easily, almost too much so.
The special is, of course, in the woods, as Richard uses nothing other than the best at his wide disposal. The magic is in the setup and the play, the intense musicality the instrument allows you, in the infamous vein of those great luthiers of the past. Richard brings his guitars to the forefront of what is truly special in a classical guitar, as evidenced by the numerous well known players using his guitars.
Newly strung with D’Addario EJ46 High Tension strings, I found the fatness of the overall sound more pleasing, instead of a thinner, more high pitched string, which I feel would be too piercing, especially in the trebles.
MP3 – 210715-1986 Richard Brune 421 Spruce EIRW – An inspiring instrument. Hauser-ish, sweet, evocative, easy enough to play, Richard always builds a phenomenal guitar.
