Glenn Nichols Corralitos #1017002 Electric Jazz Guitar


Glenn and I discussed bringing his guitars here to the gallery very quickly, and a decision was made that I would like to see his best work.  Thus, this guitar, which is upgraded to the nines, as they say (who’s they?)

This is his Lily of the Valley Corralitos model, highly appointed, highly anticipated guitar from the master luthier.

So, the guitar arrived, where the opening of the box and the case (really cool case, btw) was met with a hush in the studio.  A whoosh of air as she presented as one of the most beautiful pieces of guitar art I met ever have seen.

Her sound is just fat.  Gotdam, round and clear, the pickups Glenn used, along with his perfect setup make this a guitar you might see and play in a dream.  This is not the blowing of unnecessary sunshine.  Hint, if I didn’t like this guitar, she goes back.  She’s not going anywhere!  LOL  If you are in the market for a guitar such as this, she has to be a top contender.

Note to all, that Glenn is one of my main setup and finish guys on the East Coast, along with Matt Rubendall.  Glenn is a consummate professional, meticulous and highly skilled at what he does.   This guitar will reflect that skill along with a deep passion for gear.


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
