Steve Porter Classical Guitar #20 2013 Spruce EIRW 640mm


I will write more when I record the guitar, but I can tell you she is superb, pretty as all get out and a lot of fun to play.  Steve re-did the top on the guitar.  She is pristine, essentially brand new, but the price is well below his usual market price.  There are the slightest little ticks on the back, here and there, unnoticeable from a foot away.  The guitar is eye candy.

Please note that the guitar is a 640mm scale length, suitable for those with an 8″-9″ spread between thumb tip and pinky tip.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended.

MP3 Audio –  170131-porter-20-spruce – so much fun to play, bright, clear voiced, resonant and very active.  Easy to play, a great guitar.  My hands are big, so I was getting a touch lost here and there, but for someone with a touch smaller hands, the guitar would be perfect.

MP3 Audio – 170217-steve-porter-20 – apparently forgot that I recorded the guitar already, but well, there it is….some Bach to hear the separation.
