  • Comments:

    Of the Series II, Philip says ..."This is a fan braced guitar, much more traditional is design. The sound is clear and bell-like with a singing treble. The volume is less than the GC guitars and they are less full sounding. However, some of my customers prefer them. Historically, my Series II guitars have been very different from one another because it is a line of development beginning with the Series One. The early ones are extremely bright and the most recent are much freer and more bass rich, whilst retaining a clear treble."
    This is indeed an impressive guitar with a full, rounded, open tone with surprising power and yet a traditional sound.
    A highly-recommended guitar in lovely condition.
