2021 Thomas Friedrich Spruce EIRW Concert Classical Guitar


Just arrived, this guitar is another superb example of the beauty, clarity and coloration of a Alipine Spruce used as a top soundboard!  Pretty, actually ridiculously gorgeous, full bodied voice, nuanced and expressive, powerful as well, and easy to play.  Excellent work by the master luthier from Germany!

I have to say that the lightness of the guitar was surprising.  I found her incredibly simple to play.  Basses are deep, blooming, with a balance voice across all registers, simply beautiful singing highs and growling mids, everything I wish in a guitar.  The Rosewood is lighter, blonder almost, while the Alpine Spruce is unmistakably gorgeous.  The Rubner machines are an elegant touch, being among their higher class of tuners.

Best and feel free to give me a ring to discuss at 631-335-5447, ask for Rich

– Special customer requests are always being fulfilled

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

Dust in the photographs are always an issue, especially when the humidifiers are on and running.  We wipe down constantly, but artifact is an issue, showing up as white dots.  It is unfortunate, but I do not like to touch the photos as I believe in absolute transparency.  I want you to see what I am seeing with no secrets, ever.  This is never about fooling anyone.  I deal in happiness not deception.  Please bear all of this in mind.  I am the best in my business because of this simple philosophy.  I trust you all appreciate this simple fact.  Love to all.  Happiness all the time!  Richard
