Comments

Just Arrived! The guitar is gorgeous, so well made, evidencing the finest craftsmanship.  Fat and round, with explosive yet intimate power.  Easily played for a concert level guitar, this guitar is so damned impressive.  Juan is a true master.

Condition of the guitar is new but, there’s always a but (and not the good kind).  It is a dealer transfer from Puerto Rico.  The guitar evidences play wear on the top, with some nail rasqueado marks and other ticks.  The back shows evidence of honest play wear as well.  Nothing structural, but quite frankly, it pisses me off that people can be so disrespectful to a fine instrument.  The price is adjusted accordingly, reflecting play wear.

The guitar itself is quite incredible.  A beautiful Spanish traditional voice, filled with power, intimacy, an abundance of grace and elegance, not only in the sound but the overall appearance.  Sat with the guitar for 5 minutes before photography.  How do I say this?  Jeezus…man, I haven’t heard something like this in quite a while.  Trebles cut right through you.  Basses boom while being balanced.  Mids growl.  This is the whole package.

She is good to go and really quite powerful.  A lesser price is of no concern to me, so no worries where I’m concerned.  Best and call me directly.  Rich – 631-335-5447

Media

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  – 200324-2013 Juan Miguel Gonzalez 238 Spruce CSA – great guitar, loud and vibrant, clear and brilliant in all registers.  Easily played as well, a real pleasure to hold this guitar.
