Comments:

Samo Sali of Slovenia and I have been corresponding for a over a year now, where his 1st guitar to us was fantastic, and this, his 2nd, is even better.  Truly happy with this guitar.  The guitar is superb with excellent voice, power and sustain.  His guitar is exciting, vibrant, full of sound and resonance.  Being a Cedar/Cedar Double Top, it is a little bit on the darker affect, bass side, where the trebles sing clearly, balanced with superb clarity and sustain.  Last note, she is really loud.  You push, you get.

Samo is a Doctor of Mechanical Engineering and is a Member of the Advisory Board of Savart Journal regarding the Science and Technology of Stringed Musical Instruments.

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 – 201222-2021 Samo Sali 193 Cedar EIRW DT – super powerful, cello like in its bloom, growl and voice in the mids and the lows.  The highs are crystal, capable of a light touch to a piercing tone.  Very nice.

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