Comments

Specs and woods are from Kevin.

The guitar is in superb condition, after a full refreshing of the top and back/sides.  She plays beautifully as well, after a personal setup.  The light French Polish finish allows this seemingly thin beauty to resonate and sing.  Blooming basses, along with piercing trebles and a ringing sing to her overall voice allow for a musical experience that is difficult to achieve.  She plays beautifully, setup to perfection, allowing the ability to drive her, yet you are able to evince a soft evocative voice from her as well.  She has musicality and projection.  Another exemplary guitar from the English master.

I sold the guitar before I could photograph her.  The best I could do was 2 shots with my phone.  She really was special.

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 Audio190904-2000 Kevin Aram Ophelia Spruce EIRW – an excellent guitar on every level.  The recording speaks much louder than I ever could.  I perform “The Mist Covered Mountains of Home” a favorite Celtic piece given to me by my good friend, El McMeen and rearranged by me slightly.  I then just tool around a bit, ending with my own composition, as yet untitled.  Enjoy, she’s lovely.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
