  • Comments:

    Kevin Aram's guitars need no introduction. The selection of materials, quality of woodcraft and sound are widely-recognised as being of the highest standards. This one has a body air resonance just above F#, giving real depth and character to the bass. The middle and treble are in good balance; with an already open quality, even and with excellent clarity. These are such joyful instruments to play and to look at. For those appreciating finely-crafted traditional instruments, this is unlikely to disappoint.
