.... what a beautiful sound has matured out of the cutaway sunburst acoustic you made in 1997. It has grown on me to the point that it is now my favorite guitar from a playing and a sound point of view. The craftsmanship all round is wonderful and the sound hole marquetry is a special delight to the eye.

The tonal accuracy and overall balance across all the frequencies from very high to very low is really noticeable especially when I record with it, usually on a pair of matching Audio Technica 4033 large diaphragm mikes.
It also has much more volume and warmth than anyone would expect from a small bodied cutaway acoustic that would normally be perfect for jazzy crisp sounds cutting through, but in the passing years the warmth has increased noticeably. It still has a crisp top as well but the warmth has surprised me and those who have heard the un doctored raw recordings of it on my studio Tannoy monitors.
So thanks for a fine instrument that has got right under my skin in the last 14 years and made itself a great friend to me as it has started to write songs all on its own! Now I will embark on retrofitting a good internal mike and transducer. Thanks and good luck with all you do.
Nick has fixed up two guitars for me in the last year. He took the mess I gave him (one of them was literally in bits) and gave me back stunning working guitars! For incredibly reasonable prices to boot! Highly recommended! The man is a guitar fixing legend!*
