2005 Alan Chapman Spruce EIRW Classical Guitar


She is a really beautiful guitar.  Small nail marks in and around the rosette, some very slight blemishes.  The neck lacquer is peeling a bit, but nothing structural going on.  She can be repaired in that regard, easily, but I’m leaving her as is and she is discounted appropriately.

Her sound is bold and clear, with good power.  Easy play coupled with clarity means awesome classical guitar.  Alan does interesting work.  I’ve not ever seen anything but good things from him, and this is an excellent example of his work.  This is an excellent guitar, discounted way down.



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 – 191227-Alan Chapman Classical Guitar 2005 Spruce EIRW– a charming guitar, one that surprises with her horsepower, deep basses and clear trebles.  Setup to play with low to moderate effort, it’s another guitar I find myself getting lost in as I play, forgetting that I’m recording  LOL
