2015 Max Cuker Spruce Curly Walnut

Lattice Braced – very powerful, with piercing and singing trebles and punch in the basses.

Comments:

Just Arrived! Another highly anticipated classical guitar from Maksim Cuker of Vilnius, Lithuania.  Seriously powerful with a bite and thrust in the trebles, while beautiful punch and push in her basses.  Articulate in her voices, clear and brilliant.  I can keep her warm as well, but she colors effortlessly with my right hand position.  Set up to play well with driving ability, I found her very comfortable.  Max comes to me through the recommendation of a good client.  I’m happy I listened.

Condition is brand new, but suffered a bit in transit, slight meaningless things that any of us would do to a guitar in honest play wear.  There is a touch of blemish in the top under the strings, a small mark in one of the sides, probably from the extra saddle Max included, which was not enveloped or taped to the case compartment.  It got out and bounced around a bit.  Avoidable, but there it is, always full and proper disclosure.  🙂

I also did a full setup on the guitar, adjusting action, making certain the saddle was solidly touching all areas of the bridge slot, adjusted the nut, she’s singing like songbird now.

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  – 200412-2015 Max Cuker Spruce Curly Walnut – me just messing around with her, exploring the guitar.  I accidentally said Cedar in the recording.  It is most definitely Spruce, an excellent example of such.  She is bright, punchy, vibrant and very powerful.  The top is almost too active!  LOL
