My own thoughts on this classical guitar….yeah baby. She’s a growling little monster with a big voice. The G string has a great attack, with a nice full round sound to the entire guitar. The Cedar Double Top, much like the Spruce Double Tops, evidences a wildness, untamed resonance and vibrancy, while lending itself to the singing trebles that we all look for in a great concert guitar. Amazingly, this guitar has a lot of balls, to put it inelegantly. hehehe….’tis true though. You’re thinking, no way, smaller guitar, smaller voice. WRONG. She’ll blow away most anything you’re playing now, and I don’t care much what you’re playing. Easy to play, perfect for the smaller player for sure, she comes off like a real parlor guitar, easy to pick up, and she loves to make music. If this is the type of guitar you’re looking for, don’t hesitate…she’s awesome. You’ll love her.

I recorded this little monster this afternoon, having another whooping good time. She is explosive, easy to play, loud as all get out, with a super sensitivity. In all, a blast.
