Darren Hippner Classical Guitar #712 – Friederich Model


This is a beauty of a guitar with Bird’s Eye Maple all over the Back and Sides.  The guitar has a clear, singing voice with excellent balance, strong basses and beautiful trebles, especially as you move higher up the board.  Easily played, with very accessible action, I really loved playing this gem from Darren.

There is an unfortunate but very slight ding to the top by the lower bout, about where your arm would drape over the guitar.  Slight raising of the purfling along the middle seam of the back.  All stable and warranted.  Nothing structural and certainly nothing that detracts from the beautiful character and voice of the guitar.  As a result, she is well discounted.

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 – 171230-hippner-712-maple – silky and smooth sounding, very musical, easily played, with more than sufficient projection and voice.  Very pretty guitar as well.
