  • Comments:

    The lattice guitars of David Argent are known for a sweet tone, powerful volume and good sustain. Like many Australian guitars, they are heavy (though not as heavy as Smallman) and with very rigid back and sides compared with more traditionally-built, fan-strutted instruments. Some people find the weight aids the guitar resting in their lap in a stable and secure way.
    The sound of this Argent guitar is typical of the make with strength, quick release of sound and with good left-hand comfort. Priced well below that of a new one despite it being in near-new condition.
