2022 Frederich Holtier Cedar DT Madagascar RW


From workmanship to sound to playability, she is an excellent example of master craftsmanship from one of America’s leading luthiers.  A loud, powerful guitar, she is very clear and bold sounding, with a resonant ringing you would expect from a high end steel string.  I sat with her for a little while, immediately falling in love with the smooth play and the clear and musical affect of the guitar.  She responded really well to strumming and picking technique that brought a quick and deep smile to my face, while playing her.  All I could ever ask for..yes sir!  Thank you Frederich.

Please note that for some reason, our mistake, we labeled the guitar (as you can see in the photos), EIRW or East Indian Rosewood and 2021?  I also say this in the recording, which is me just reading the case label as I recorded.  Ugh… This is a mistake on my part, as Frederich has without a doubt, confirmed the use of Madagascar Rosewood.  My apologies.  It is Madagascar and dated 2022.  Richard
