2006 Bob Desmond Cutaway Spruce EIRW


Another great guitar from Bob Desmond, whoo, big surprise?  LOL  Guitar is cut like a standard classical, string spacings, length, nut width, etc so she plays very much in the classical style, with the added benefit of a cutaway and a great pickup system in the LR Baggs Lyric setup.  Very nice condition, actually excellent with only the slightest play wear, as seen in the photos.  I highlighted what I could actually photograph.  It comes with a Custom built Hoffee Case perfectly fitting the guitar (a $1000+ upgrade).

Pickup works beautifully, just tested it.  Great sound, feel and play.  Super guitar!



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 – 190203-2006 Bob Desmond Cutaway Spruce EIRW – super fast and fun to play.  Setup low and easy, she could actually use higher tension strings, in my opinion.  I found myself going fast and furious with her.  Recorded acoustically, I could easily have plugged in, but figured it was better for you to hear it natural.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
