2016 Tom Blackshear #326 Reyes Cedar EIRW
Just arrived. An extremely good guitar, Tom is clearly one of the best in the world. The guitar is new, a dealer transfer from PR that felt the instrument might be better served to the public from here in NY.
She’s very bold in the Spanish character, voices clear, play fluid, with plenty of power. This is a wonderful guitar with tons of spirit, voice and body.
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 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 – 210410-2016 Tom Blackshear 326 Reyes Cedar EIRW – a really great guitar, that was improving as I played her. Brand new, there are a few minor finish issues from transport. Tom is one of the best in the business. This guitar really has the tuning, the expression, the straightforward Spanish flair that make Reyes guitars so attractive. Set up low as well via the Barrueco school of playing, she is a dream.
My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
I’m playing my final version of “Sketch #6” here using the Blackshear #326 – a superb guitar, setup probably too low, which I am going to correct shortly. Still a special guitar, especially if someone likes super low action. Increasing the break angle of the strings and making her a touch stiffer in the nut, will increase the power, which is crazy, as the guitar already has great power and voice.
