  • Comments:

    Kevin Aram guitars have much of Torres in their design and are therefore of a very traditional and beautiful sound character. Using very high quality materials and made with great skill and passion, 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, a sweet, singing 1st string and rich bass voice with clarity throughout. All together, a lovely instrument with flexible voice and very enjoyable to play.
