Comments

Speaking about #45 specifically, as I spent over an hour with her this afternoon, the Hemlock woods used are very similar to Spruce, lending a very woody and complex sound and affect to the overall sonority of the guitar.  She is very gutty sounding, throaty in her mids and basses with an angelic voice in the trebles.  Very sweet sounding.  If you didn’t know better, you would not guess double top with a small lattice braced pattern within the top.  She is powerful with all the wonderful character and separation you would wish from a master luthier guitar.

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.  It is and will continue to be a pleasure to represent him in America.

Michael’s guitars sell for at a minimum $10-12K equivalent in Europe.  Being his exclusive dealer here in the US, I am able to offer slight discounts on his older guitars.  An excellent value for a truly superb guitar.

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

 

MP3 Audio – 150207-batell-45 – I had to sit down with her again, this evening and record here.  Here are 2 sample sketches of my own and a small discussion.  I will record more with her in the coming days.  Great guitar with a gutty throatiness and a complexity of sound that is wondrous to play and to experience.  I absolutely love this guitar.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
