Comments

Excellent guitar, no doubt about it.  I was taken aback by her power, voice and clarity.  Elevated FingerBoard for easier access to the higher ranges, I have to say, what a great guitar.  Very pleased with this one.

Vance sent it to me with some play wear on the top (happened just before he shipped it).  Easily a $5K guitar, I’ve priced it 20% off and believe me, it’s a very good guitar (I’d have sent it back if it weren’t  LOL).   Give me a ring.  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 – 190201-2018 Vance Bergeson #44 Spruce Bolivian RW – superb fun in playing this little monster.  Vance built a great guitar with voice and character, deep basses not overpowering driven mids and lilting trebles.  New microphones by Telefunken – stereo pair of M60s help drive a crystal clear experience.  I’m listening on my studio monitors now and I’m cracking up at the artifact I can hear.  These things are picking up the lights in the main gallery.  I shut everything off and I can still hear it.  Back to the guitar, you can’t believe the power and projection of this guitar, and this with regular ole High Tension Nylon strings.  Crazy.  Great guitar.
