2019 Giacomo Guadagna Cedar Sapele Classical Guitar


The beautiful Giacomo Guadagna classical guitar is en route to the gallery. The Italian builders keep coming to our gallery!

The power of the voice of this guitar is extraordinary.  Her sensitivity is equal as is the workmanship.  Giacomo is a wonderfully earthy gentleman, which shows clearly in his worldly craft.

Sidenote – The guitar was completed this month, thus I thought she was a 2020, but Giacomo dated it as per the start of the guitar, thus the 2019 designation and the label showing her as such.  My fault, my apologies.  I try to be extremely accurate.  Fail!  LOL  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

MP3 Audio –  200113-2019 Giacomo Guadagna Cedar Sapele – a very sweet, lyrical classical guitar with sufficient power and voice you need. The guitar is a joy to play, responding to the lightest touch.  Sensitive and evocative are the words that come to mind, yet she has a growl to her when pushed.  Nice!
