2010 Charles Dick Spruce Quilted Maple


Just arrived, this guitar, a superb example of the beauty and clarity of Engelmann Spruce used as a top soundboard!  The Quilted Maple is stunning to look at giving this guitar a wholesome, pretty, full bodied voice, a touch brighter, while exhibiting excellent power as well, and being easy to play.  Excellent work by the master luthier.  The guitar is actually almost new, unplayed, for the last 13 years.  There is small evidence of nail wear in and around the rosette, quite slight.  A seeming repair by Charles upon building the guitar, seamlessly performed and stable.

Charles Dick is from Cedar Creek Luthiers in Spencerville, Indiana – a leader in Acoustic, Steel String and Classical Guitar building.



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 Audio231026-2010 Charles Dick Spruce Quilted Maple – a wonderfully expressive guitar, bright, yet capable of warmth and nuance.  She is quite beautiful in every regard, looks, personality, play, sound, depths, singing voice and balance.
