2018 Douglass Scott #96 Cedar EIRW
She has arrived and she is beautiful. I mean drop dead gorgeous!
There is Porthole with magnetic cover (warning? for those with a pacemaker…Douglass made me write that 🙂
The guitar has all of his bells and whistles featuring Back and Sides of East Indian Rosewood
Douglass used EIRW for the Headstock, veneers, bridge and bindings.
Sound Port w. Cover Sound port in upper bout with adjustable magnetic cover
The guitar is complimented with Alessi F5 tuning machines with Ebony buttons.
Playing the guitar, I was immediately taken with her power out of the gate, and this is brand spanking new? Her voice started to develop immediately, with the singing highs and the low gutty basses that everyone wants. Douglass is a master of guitar building, no doubt.
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
Douglass does such incredible work. This is an absolutely beautiful guitar, sounding equally gorgeous.
MP3 – 181111-2018 Douglass Scott #96 Cedar EIRW – a superb guitar that starts to sing and bellow. A little push and she came to serious life in my hands. Some Sor and some of my sketches to highlight the range of the guitar.
