  • Comments:

    This guitar from Rik Middleton has a rich and deep sound with a rounded, full treble quality. Lighter than many of his previous instruments, it has a low body air resonance down around E - and a sweeter, more rounded treble than some. His instruments are always thoughtfully-constructed - the curves and cambers of the fingerboard and frets for example are very precisely done, aiming for ultimate playability.
    Very good value for money.
