2009 Roy McAlister #219 00 Vintage Cutaway Spruce Mahogany


Just arrived, I will write more as I become more familiar with the guitar.  This is from Roy’s “Vintage” Series back in 2009.  The guitar was meticulously cared for, being in Excellent Condition.  She displays a very clean voice, resonant, imminently playable.  Reminds me very much of a Martin Style Acoustic.   Comes in an original black dreadnought HSC.  A seriously nice steel string guitar.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

MP3 Audio – 201014-2009 Roy McAlister 219 00 Vintage Cutaway Spruce Mahogany – “The Black Gum Jambo” (thematic material anyway, as it not quite finished  and then “The Black Oak Harp” Richard F. Sayage – written back in 2003 at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River, NY – I was with my Mom and 2 girls when this Black Oak started swaying back and forth in the wind.  It was gorgeous and this music came to me like a dream.

– the music is NOT in the book below.  Rich

MP3 Audio – 201014-2009 Roy McAlister 219 00 Vintage Cutaway Spruce Mahogany_a – this is more about “The Black Gum Jambo” and a slight comparison to an older Takamine EF-360S (“lawsuit guitar”) that I acquired and setup back in the day.  The less expensive Takamine is a great guitar, but you can hear how it can get away from you vs. the absolute control you have over a well built luthier guitar.  The McAlister is simply tight and whole throughout her range.

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