2015 Bruce Thompson #44 Cedar EIRW


Bruce is a NY builder who is creating a superb classical guitar.   This one is also very pretty, from the headstock to the woods used.  I just received this one, where I will write more when I sit down to record her, giving my straightforward thoughts.  So far so good, as she is clear voiced and resonant with easy play.

Additional Information about the guitar:

  • Linings are Spruce/Mahogany
  • Nut and Saddle are Ox Bone
  • The Treble slopes inward to almost 10mm at the 12th fret, avoiding the typical slippage of the treble E in higher positions
  • Trim on the guitar is done in a gorgeous Bloodwood
  • Bracing is done with Port Orford Cedar
  • This guitar was shown at the past GFA – it has very tiny nail marks, maybe 3 on the top that are hard to see.  The guitar is hugely discounted to reflect this.



MP3 Audio – 191229-Bruce Thompson Classical Guitar #44 2015 Cedar EIRW – Wow, I’m in love with the warmth, clarity, and playability of this guitar.  Bruce is clearly a master, with a price point that is much lower than it should be on any given day.  This guitar is priced a bit lower because of some very insignificant finish issues as a result of studio demo and GFA exposure. Inconsequential, but I want his guitars out there, he needs to be heard.  I had so much fun playing her, with pushback, velocity, intimacy, and everything in between.  Great guitar.
