2019 Aldo Illotta Spruce EIRW
Beautiful Italian traditional built guitar using the finest woods, matched with Alessi H6 Silver Machines with Mother of Pearl buttons. The East Indian Rosewood is deep and dark with great figuring. Low action (an additional saddle is provided), easily played, with an absolutely wonderful sound, with expression and musicality. The basses are blooming with trebles that sing, mids that are driven.
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
