Comments

At this point, all I know is that Mikhail, or Misha to his friends, is building very few guitars of late.  When he is building, he is truly crafting that which inspires him.  From the woods used, to the design, this guitar is deep from the soul of this great Canadian Luthier.

This guitar is superb, with a beautiful voice, musical immediately, expressive at the slightest touch, an impressive guitar.  Her trebles are lilting, while the mids are a growling beast, with a nice and pleasing bass response, all leading to a great musical experience.

Her condition is most definitely played.  A ding here and there, string rash, fingernail marks, etc.  Nothing structural, but not pristine!  Regardless, as I have said in the past, the mic has no eyes.  She is a beautiful playing and well setup guitar, with a fantastic voice.

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 Audio – 191009-2000 Mikhail Robert Cedar EIRW – what a great guitar, warm and nuanced, with power and projection.  Perfectly setup, able to be driven, just a lovely sounding and playing guitar.
