2018 Juan Miguel Gonzalez #289 Cedar EIRW


Just Arrived! The guitar is gorgeous, so well made, evidencing the finest craftsmanship.  Fat and round, with explosive yet intimate power.  Easily played for a concert level guitar, this guitar is so damned impressive.  Juan is a true master.

Condition of the guitar is new but, there’s always a but (and not the good kind).  The wrench for the Gotoh machines escaped, (was not packed well, as in sealed in an envelope and taped to the case compartment, ugh?).  As a result she has a few minor scratches on the sides and back butt, with 2 or 3 very small dings in the top.  You can see them in the photos.  I made certain to highlight them.

She is good to go and really quite powerful.  A lesser price is of no concern to me, so no worries where I’m concerned.  Best and call me directly.  Rich – 631-335-5447



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  – 220124-2018 Juan Miguel Gonzalez 289 Cedar EIRW – a very special character of clean lines and voices, bright with te ability to color, coupled with power and bold directness.  Great guitar.
