  • Comments:

    Oren Myers is a maker who for some years now is consistently producing guitars that have real refinement and are beautifully made. It seems some time now since he had been extremely fortunate to have guidance and mentoring from Christopher Dean and has clearly now established independent consistency of build quality and sound. The design is traditional and simple with strutting generally as Torres. The woodcraft and polishing is to a very high standard and the sound is refined with excellent balance, consistency through the range and a depth of bass. They are also very pleasing aesthetically in terms of head-shape, body proportions & tasteful decoration.
    Most importantly, the feel, balance, set-up and sound qualities are really very appealing. If you want a refined, comfortable guitar then here are qualities you would expect to pay much more for ... and may have to soon.
