Federica Canta & Luthier Matteo Vaghi

Federica Canta & Luthier Matteo Vaghi

Matteo built us a beautiful classical guitar in the Italian tradition called his “Granadina”, as you can see in the label shot of the guitar.  Newly arrived, she evidences superb woods for the amazing Italian Spruce top, striking Ziricote, excellent machines, purfling and bindings exquisite, rosette sublime.  The sound is equally magnificent.  Italy has some of the finest luthiers, where Matteo is and must be listed among them.    I’m going to put higher tension strings on the guitar, at least the basses, where I believe she will benefit from them.  As it is, she recorded beautifully.



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 – 220111-2019 Matteo Vaghi Spruce Ziricote – The guitar plays and sounds like a dream.  She already sounds mature.  Bright, clearly voiced, excellent balance, easily played.
