2016 Michel Brück #197 Cedar EIRW DT


The guitar has just arrived.  A magnificent example of German Double Top construction. There is no doubt, this is a magnificent guitar.  I found her voice very pleasing, mellowed already, but with extraordinary power and a singing voice to match.  I could feel her activity just holding and talking around the guitar.  She’s vibrating in my hands!  Scary, in a most good way.

There are a few very slight nail marks on the top, in and around the rosette.  Thumb side and i-m-a side as well.  Nothing of consequence and tough to see from a foot away.  The back and sides are in very nice shape.



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
