Esteve ELEC Cutaway Spruce EIRW
This classical guitar represents one of Manuel’s line of All Solid Wood guitars and builds, using the best woods available to him and built in his shop in Spain. I also have full paperwork available for international shipping, CITES and Lacey Act Paperwork, provided by Manuel himself. This is his top of the line factory built electric cutaways, as designated by the ELEC, which is also in the label.
The cutaway gives you the obvious access to upper frets, while the Fishman Pro Blend is a sweet unit, giving you a great stage sound, with easy access to the battery pack. Very smart.
She is beautiful. The European Spruce has deep lines, straight and true, while the East Indian Rosewood is simply superb. The rosette and bindings are spectacular, using various woods including PurpleHeart. Her sound is deeply Spanish, as expected from one of the premier builders in the region. This is a truly exceptional Spanish instrument.
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
Please NOTE that photos of all “production guitars” are stock photos, taken randomly for our numerous selection of guitars, whether they be from Kenny Hill – Esteve – Adalid or others. It is virtually impossible and arduous to photograph each of our available production guitars.
