2007 Eric Monrad Concert Spruce EIRW
Another beautiful guitar, this time from California. Eric Monrad is clearly a craftsman of reckoning, building elegant instruments that resound with expressiveness and musicality. Her play is easy and comfortable in both hands. Projection and volume are perfect for the concert hall. The Spruce is from the Val di Fiemme region of Italy known for their beautiful Spruce boards while the East Indian Rosewood is aged 28 years before the build, gorgeous as well. See photos. The guitar is in excellent condition having been very well taken care of by the original owner. There is a bit of finish wear on the back in the expected spot (which I have relieved to about 90%). Quite clean and a truly excellent 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
