Comments:

Matt continues a fine tradition of New York City guitar building, coupling power and song in his latest offerings.  Powerful and expressive, I was immediately impressed by her total experience.  Singing, balanced, with projection and power.  Matt is a driven builder, doing things his way, which I respect greatly.  His commitment to doing what is best for the guitar, not being distracted by the “latest” craze, means that the guitar you own from Mr. Rubendall is pure in its goal.  Be musical, be a concert classical guitar, with voice and power.

The sides and back are double walled, formed and glued together, adding a distinct stiffness to the overall structure.  The internal back wood is a Big Leaf Maple, while the internal sides are mahogany.

The guitar demands high tension strings giving you push from the soundboard and the box as a whole.  It is a distinct pleasure to play this guitar.

Matt’s workmanship and attention to detail is superb.  His knowledge of the guitar is massive.  It shows in his builds.  This is an excellent concert classical guitar in every regard.

Condition is very good to excellent with nominal playing wear on the top, back and sides are excellent.  Photos show what I could find.

MP3 Audio – 181208-2012 Matt Rubendall Port Orford EIRW – something went wrong with the recording equipment or the Mac I’m using, where it cut it short, but you can get the idea of the guitar very easily.  I test the ranges, play one of my short sketches, got into another, then she cut out.  I’ll figure it out.  Great guitar, very clear, bright, with lots of power and voice.
