2021 Luigi Bubba SE Roma Expo Spruce Pau Rojo


Luigi Bubba wrote to me shortly after the virtual presentation of the 2021 Roma Expo Guitar Festival in March of this year.  He presented me with a guitar that I had to take a closer look at, called his 2021 Special Edition (SE) Roma Expo.  The guitar is Lattice Braced, in the Italian tradition of such, meaning she is not only pretty, but she will be powerful.  Purfling, design, woods, guitar all superb.  Nice.  The Pau Rojo is hysterically gorgeous with dark broad streaking with lighter colored offsets, as is the Val di Femme Spruce Top from Italy. The guitar also features an armrest for the player’s comfort.  He is an incredibly gifted luthier, one whom I am proud to represent.

The photographs shown are taken by and sent to me from Luigi.  I will of course photograph the guitar when she arrives.

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 – 220310-2021 Luigi Bubba SE Roma Expo Spruce Pau Rojo – absolutely superb guitar.  Clear, resonant, vibrant, deep, singing, she has it all in an easy play setup.  She’s also new, which is plain scary to think of what she has yet to become, given how pure and beautiful she sounds as of this recording.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
