2019 Matt Rubendall Port Orford Cedar EIRW
Matt continues a fine tradition of New York City guitar building, coupling power and song in his latest offerings. Powerful and expressive, I was immediately impressed by her total experience. Singing, balanced, with projection and power. Matt is a driven builder, doing things his way, which I respect greatly. His commitment to doing what is best for the guitar, not being distracted by the “latest” craze, means that the guitar you own from Mr. Rubendall is pure in its goal. Be musical, be a concert classical guitar, with voice and power.
The sides and back are double walled, formed and glued together, adding a distinct stiffness to the overall structure. The internal back wood is a Big Leaf Maple, while the internal sides are mahogany.
The guitar demands high tension strings giving you push from the soundboard and the box as a whole. It is a distinct pleasure to play this guitar.
Matt’s workmanship and attention to detail is superb. His knowledge of the guitar is massive. It shows in his builds. This is an excellent concert classical guitar in every regard.
Condition is very good to excellent with nominal playing wear on the top, back and sides are excellent. Photos show what I could find, which is localized on the bass side of the rosette, all normal and honest play wear.
Please note that this guitar has one owner, Professor Doug Rubio of The Crane School of Music, a wonderfully talented and gentle man.
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 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
