  • Comments:

    Stephen Eden having initially learned his craft from Stephen Hill and Pablo Requena, has really found his stride producing persuasive instruments that work very well in all departments - they have depth, good balance, clear rounded treble, plenty of volume and good playing comfort.
    What has impresses me is the observation that no loss of power or projection is evident in his 64cm scale guitars compared with the 65cm ones, which of course will please many players.
    These are professional standard performance instruments still at very modest price.
