2019 Vicente Carrillo Gabriela I Spruce Madagascar RW

This is the traditional Gabriela, single top, double reinforced walls (sides), appointed otherwise identically to the Gabriela II.  Again, very well balanced, sweet trebles with very bold basses.  Exceptional workmanship and pretty woods.  A true concert guitar in all regards.



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 – 190427-2019 Vicente Carrillo Gabriela I Spruce Madagascar RW – great guitar, with a soft affect that hardens on command.  Clear and beautifully voiced, a very enjoyable experience, one you will thoroughly appreciate.  Spanish building at its finest.
