2016 James Lister #104 Spruce EIRW


I will write more when I record the guitar.  First impressions are excellent.  Superb workmanship, clean lines with gorgeous woods.  Her sound is very expressive, with excellent projection and good volume.  The price includes a Black Hiscox HSC.



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 – 210112-2016 James Lister 104 Spruce EIRW – magnificent guitar.  Clear, voice, sing, balance, with excellent projection.  A sheer joy to play.
