  • Comments:

    This is one of a pair of Kevin Aram's, best-of-everything guitars that were ordered by duo friends back in 2008 using very high quality materials and made with great skill and passion. With much of Torres in their design, they are of a very traditional and beautiful sound character. Kevin Aram produces fine instruments that appeal to guitarists appreciating traditional guitar-making and sounds of the early great master makers. This particular guitar has very good balance, with a crisp focussed sound with rich bass voice and clarity throughout. All together, a lovely instrument with flexible voice and highly enjoyable to play.
