Alan Chapman Classical Guitar #341 2002 Spruce EIRW


Just arrived.

She is a really beautiful guitar.  Small nail marks in and around the rosette and top, some very slight blemishes, but nothing structural going on.  All easily refreshed if you wish it.  I took photos to show the various dings and such.  Alan used excellent woods for this guitar, as he does for all of his work.

Her sound is bold and clear, with good power, nice growl in the voices, excellent trebles as well.  Easy play coupled with clarity means awesome classical guitar.  Alan does interesting and very good work.  I’ve not ever seen anything but good things from him, and this is another excellent example of his work.



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 – I’m revisiting some guitars that have been sitting a while, wondering why?  This is a great guitar, appointed really well, excellent machines, HSC and it’s a great guitar.

She has an extraordinary voice, that just needed to wake up.  Once she did, gorgeous.  Love that high E coupled with the balance, clarity and articulation.  I play a sketch of mine, and really just messing around with her.  Nothing serious, but it all helps to display the ranges, the blending of the voices, etc.  Excellent guitar.
