2018 Wolfgang Jellinghaus Signature #1803 Cedar DT Granadillos 640mm

Well balanced, somewhat to the bass side, with sweet trebles with bold basses.  Power coupled with voice and color as well.  Exceptional workmanship and pretty woods.  It is an interesting guitar, with the floating neck, elevated fretboard, doubled sides.  She is a ringing beast of a guitar, easily played.  Your right hand control over the strings will need to be present.

Please note that this is a 640mm scale length guitar.  A rare and exceptional find for the gallery and hopefully for you.  She is super easy to play, btw.  A bonus.

The top shows evidence of honest play wear, somewhat irresponsible, in my opinion.  Wholly avoidable, but who am I to tell people how to treat their guitars?  I have taken photos of each quadrant to highlight the nail marks, rasqueado effects, etc.  The back and sides are remarkably blemish free.  Full disclosure, always.  Rich



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
