The guitar itself is almost pristine, marking in at least a 85%. All original, untouched in any way that I can tell with black light. There are the lightest thin marks in the finish on the back in a few areas of the back, and some marks on the top, scratches, 2 dings, all photographed, after close, well-lit examination. She has a big sound, nice wide neck, and did I say big fat sound? Yeah, she’s pretty remarkable. Really like this guitar.
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 – 180216-Eastman-Archtop-AR910CE-2007-#1328 – OK, so this MP3 does have a bit of Reverb on it, as it is appropriate to do so in this instance. This is an instrumental version of “Homeless” by Ryan O’Rourke one of the singers and songwriters for the band “TableTalk” and my personal assistant in the gallery. A simple and haunting piece, it serves to display the fatness and round sound of the guitar. Played through a Supro amp and miked up directly in front of the amp, the thing that popped out at both Ryan and myself was FAT. Dang, she sounds good, and this was at a moderate volume, fairly neutral on the trebles and bass. Big wide body, nice wide neck, it was very easy to manipulate the guitar. We have a video of this same piece in development.
