2005 Sascha Nowak Spruce EIRW


This guitar came to me from a friend of Tony Acosta of Luthier Music, a good friend of mine.  He had this pre-owned guitar listed for significantly more on his website.  You can see that we are asking much less.

The guitar is beautiful sounding, playing quite easily.  The downside is that it has a bit of play wear on the top, sides and back, but mostly on the top.  Honest play wear, nothing significant, but there are nail marks all over the finish.  My photos can be blown up quite large, so take a hard look.  But, the mic has no eyes, only ears and man, this guitar sounds beautiful.  I would consider this a major bargain in a finely built German guitar by a known master of the trade.



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 Audio191220-2005 Sascha Nowak Spruce EIRW – phenomenal guitar that developed and blossomed as I played it.  Wonderful voicing, good balance, separation, getting better as I played it.  Very enjoyable and a great value for anyone looking at this price point.
