Ashley Sanders Classical Guitar #57 2014 Spruce Burl Ash

Comments

The guitar came into the studio yesterday.  I gave her a day to acclimate.  Opened her up and a whoosh of air from myself as I looked down on the most beautiful guitar I have ever seen.  The Burl Ash is gorgeous.  Like a yellow orange maple but so so pretty.

Playing her, I was not surprised to find that her voice was as smooth and beautiful as her appearance.  Easy to play, smooth sounding, resonant deep basses with lilting highs.  Incredible guitar by one of the great builders down under.

from Ashley himself – “Body weight is down on all previous guitars, this is where I’m going and will try to keep the guitars as light as possible, given my construction methods”.

There is no sale price on this guitar.  Hiscox LiteFlite HSC, Alessi H8 machines, the Burl Ash, the superb Spruce top that Ashley hand selected, in all, an amazing guitar, worthy of the price and more.

I played the guitar again, today, and silky smooth, effortless power all come to mind.  Bach sounds glorious on the guitar.  She was setup to play low and easy, thus driving the guitar is not really in play, though I do have the original bone nut and saddle, which was set up for higher, more professional action.  She has a few very slight, very hard to see ticks and fingernail marks in and around the top.  Some of them inexplicable, but they are there.  Again, hard to see.  I had to tilt the guitar in the light in a particular way to find them, they are that miniscule, but regardless, they are there and I’m all about full disclosure, as you all know.  I have to repeat it though, the guitar is magnificent, to play, to own, to look at, to behold.   Her sound is more mellow now after 2 years, where she “oozes” music.  A rare guitar indeed.

Latest MP3 Audio – 170222-ashley-sanders-57 – what a pleasure to play this guitar.  She simply oozes sound and music.  Some off the cuff playing and some Bach from the 1st Violin Partita in B Minor.  Gorgeous.

MP3 Audio – 140322-sanders-2014-spruce-burlash – This is a great guitar.  Smooth, deep, singing, musical.  This is a sketch I’m refining in the last day, first piece I’ve written in a while, almost 6 years since my father passed away.  A simple piece, more moody, almost trance type music.  It felt good to play it and the guitars were responding.

E’ una notte tranquilla – translates to It’s a Quiet Night
