2008 Pete Barthell Cedar EIRW
Just Arrived. I will write more when I record with the guitar. Her condition is excellent, nothing of note to mention except for some small isolated nail ticks on the board. The back and sides are excellent with a touch of play wear rubbing, which I’ve buffed out for the most part.
The guitar was started by Pete in 2008 as evidenced by the date on the inside of the soundboard. The guitar was recently finished by Mark Tossman, an excellent luthier in Washington State. She has some marks on the top (I photographed what I could). They are small and insignificant to the structural integrity of the guitar. Nice sound with good volume, she’s setup very well. The guitar is priced accordingly, an exceptional value.
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 – 181228-2008 Pete Barthell Cedar EIRW – as always, a beautifully smooth experience playing one of Pete’s guitars. This one is no exception, very easily played, with a silky smooth tone, great pushes from the basses and mids, with a lilting affect to the trebles. I think the setup on this one may be a touch low, but for someone with a light touch looking for seriously easy play, this guitar has to be a contender for you.
