Tom Blackshear Classical Guitar #223 Spruce EIRW Rodriguez


Just arrived.  I have to do a minor setup on the guitar (she’s too low) but there’s no mistaking a great guitar.  She has power and voice, no question.  Condition is definitely played.  All honest, nothing out of control.  Photos will show you most everything that’s easily visible.   I’ll write more after I set the guitar up and record.

I spent some good amount of time with the guitar, reshaping the saddle, nut, polishing frets, oiling and cleaning the neck/fretboard, strings, intonation and bam, the guitar came to life in a hurry.  Recording below.  I fell in love with the guitar.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

MP3 Audio – 170120-blackshear-223-1995 – clear voiced with good power, easily played by most anyone.  A Rodriguez model by Tom is always desirable and this is no exception.  Personally set up by myself, the guitar is a very good value.
