Maxwell Sipe Classical Guitar #60 2017 Spruce Honduran Rosewood

Comments

Max builds a superb classical guitar.    My last one was a Cedar (see photos – from the archive).  This new classical guitar is a Spruce with asymmetrical bracing, as per Max.  The Honduran Rosewood is spectacular.  Beautiful woods, thoughtful and careful build, excellent workmanship all work out to a clear, bright and beautiful guitar that plays and sings.  The bracing is based off the work of Miguel Rodriguez Jr.

The case is a slim line CrossRock Black HSC.  Very nice.

Strung with Savarez Alliance HT classical guitar strings

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. Thanks. Rich

MP3 Audio – 171203-sipe-60 – really good guitar by Max.  Clear, ringing, no breaking, just solid all around. Beautiful work, beautiful guitar.

My book of personal pieces is here for your convenience.

I just opened her up after letting her sit in the studio acclimating to the humidity and environment.  The guitar is clearly brand new, but wow, she sounds old already.  Clean bright lines, voices, and separation.  Love this guitar.  

MP3 Audio – Coming Soon!
