1995 Lester DeVoe Spruce EIRW

Lester DeVoe Classical Guitar


This is a beautiful guitar from Lester, built with custom selected East Indian Rosewood by the original owner and Italian Spruce that is seriously gorgeous.  Sloane machines match her simple elegance, in terms of looks and voice.  She is a sultry Hauser sounding classical guitar with clear bell-like voices.  Built in 1995, her age has given her a smooth mellowness that is wholly attractive.  Perfect guitar for Bach.

Please note that a DeVoe with EIRW will easily fetch $10K – priced to sell at $7995



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar. I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything. Thanks. Rich

MP3 – 190409-1995 Lester Devoe Spruce EIRW – a superb guitar with excellent color, volume and tonal palette. Very fast as well. Beautiful clarity, voices, separation, projection and so on.  You can really hear the low voices growling with the highs and mids, when you push her just a bit.  Most appropriate for Bach.  Great guitar.
