2004 Rich DiCarlo #1156 Spruce EIRW


Guitars from Rich DiCarlo are always beautiful, with his own touch and flair for binding and rosette work, as well as being known for their penultimate musicality and expression.  This guitar is no exception.  I photographed the guitar so that you can see any and all issues, all of which are superficial at best, from 20+ years of honest playing and wear.

I performed an in-depth setup, flushed the saddle, cleaned her up where she’s playing very nicely, strung up with D’Addario FF Series Carbons High Tension strings.  She’s singing very nicely as a result.  I put an aggressive price on the guitar as the owner is motivated.  Give me a ring.  Rich 631-335-5447



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 – 190128-2004 Rich DiCarlo #1156 Spruce EIRW – I did a set up on the guitar, and bam, she responded.  Really nice, as you’ll hear.  I talk a bit but there’s no mistaking the quality of the guitar, her voice and clarity.
