2001 Thomas Humphrey Millenium Cedar Jacaranda

Comments:

This classical guitar, built by the innovative Thomas Humphrey, is a truly exceptional example of his work.  Sad to say, not all of his guitars were great.  If you actually know what you’re talking about, this is simply a fact, where I am not trying to be mean or dismissive.  He would build four, and one would be extraordinary.   This is one of those that are extraordinary.  Maybe the best I’ve ever played or seen by him.  A

As everyone knows, I’m extremely particular about what comes into my studio.  The owner came over and was pleased that I was pleased 🙂

The woods used are beautiful, straight grained, tapping very well.  The Jacaranda is superb with a Maple Wedge running the middle of the back.  Stunningly gorgeous!

Beautiful tone, set up for a professional, able to be driven, fat and round, with clear singing highs and basses that do not overwhelm, but complement the overall concert guitar experience.  I love the growl of the mid-voices, while the highs are a beautiful compliment, along with bold and forceful basses.

Condition is very good, with expected honest playing wear from a traveling professional.  I see some rasqueado marks beyond the 2 golpes on either side of the rosette, as well as slight scrapes.  My photos will show all of this as clearly as I can manage.

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 – 180525-2001-humphrey-cedar-jaca – guitar just came, I warmed up with her and had to record it.  Wow.  The recording may be not so good as there was a synch problem with the interface, but still, gotdam.  What a growling beast of a guitar.  I’ll re-record if necessary.  Rich
