Comments

A fabulously built guitar by Pierre.  Clean, brilliant, and evocative are some of the words that come to mind.  I put on the headphones to listen to this instrument as I played her, falling in love with her depth and nuance.  We are quite happy to represent Pierre here in the USA as a builder from France recommended to me by Dominique Field.

Please call me directly to discuss the guitar 631-335-447 – ask for 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
