Michael Batell Acoustic Guitar #56 Cedar Maple


I played this guitar last week, when he visited with me.  I fell in love immediately.  I wanted her in the gallery.  He was going to see a shop down South, but they ended up unresponsive, which worked out well for me.  Like a steel string should be, the gallery was filled with her tinsel and booming voice.  I had an absolute blast playing her.  I can’t wait to record with her.  I’ll talk more about the guitar at that time.  She is very pretty, the Maple is a touch darker, very subtle, very elegant.  The guitar shows nothing of consequence once I wiped her down and gave her my polishing/buffing treatment.  She’s gorgeous.

She also has built in electronics, passive piezo I believe, with a peg in the butt for a strap.

Michael’s guitar is very impressive.  He is very passionate about his building, his craft and his guitars.  This is very evident in the 2 guitars that he showed to me, initially, and now his follow-up offerings are very powerful and musical instruments.  I will write more about this guitar when I sit with her for a time and record.  Condition-wise, she’s in excellent shape.   He showed the guitar around a bit, down South, but she fared very well.  A tick here and there in the top, but nothing of consequence.

Michael has become very involved in the classical guitar music scene in Berlin, holding numerous house concerts with great people, as well as becoming very well known throughout Europe.  No surprise to me, Mike is a luthier to watch over the next decade.
