  • Comments:

    This is a very pleasing guitar from Stephen Eden with smaller-than-standard body and 64cm scale length, clearly designed for the smaller person or smaller hands. Nevertheless, the sound is quite normal with G air resonance giving a warmth and depth of bass along with a clear, open treble. Light in weight and very comfortable to play, this will surely please someone looking for the smaller guitar.
