A guitar of contrasts it is incredibly subtle and balanced tonally with even string-to-string response and the sweetness and warmth expected from a rosewood instrument whilst possessing an astonishing level of projection and volume. The guitar plays well with a wide 1 7/8” wide bone nut and a roomy 2 5/16″ string spacing at the bridge make for a very able fingerpicking guitar.
The guitar is in fantastic overall condition, there is a small amount of binding drift to the front waist of the guitar, a easy repair but worth noting. The guitar ships in its original Geib style Martin hardshell case.
