2003 Jean Noel Rohe #003 Spruce EIRW
The guitar arrived this morning and she is as expected. Superb in every imaginable way. Her voice is throaty, powerful, expressive and so very musical. She is setup very well, made to be driven, yet plays with ease. The surprising warmth of the Spruce is unexpected, but the reward is sustain coupled with a musicality that is immediately evident.
The guitar needs to be heard and played to truly appreciate the high level that Jean-Noel brings to the table. Double sided using Cypress, it is immediately apparent that he is a protegé of Daniel Friederich and Dominique Field (among others), with a rich bell-like auditorium sound to the overall guitar.
Condition is excellent, as I took it upon myself to refinish the guitar (very lightly but extensively) removing any and all nail marks and other playing wear (which was all honest from usage). As a result, she is exceptional. She looks just about brand new, very lightly used, where everything is smooth to the touch. Great job overall. One smallish string ding behind the treble E was not able to be addressed fully, but it’s almost invisible from a few feet away, and is smooth to the touch.

Jean-Noel, building out of Strasbourg, France, now has an 8 year waiting list. She is awesome.
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
