  • Comments:

    This guitar has a good feel and sound with a depth of voice from its air resonance of F# with a sweet, rounded treble that offers good sustain. They are quite large in the body and not as light in weight as some other makers. Using timbers that were David's and absolutely to his design pattern, including the 'nodal bar' in the strutting, these guitars can be just as good as David's own ... and to be expected when to his design and with the skill of an artisan craftsman like Paul Fischer.
    This is a very pleasing Rubio workshop guitar; deeper in voice than some and in lovely condition - which makes it a great opportunity.
