  • Comments:

    Simon Ambridge has made superb instruments from his very beginning. This one feels and sounds quite similar to those of more recent years, having a traditional beauty and tonal variety combined with a depth of bass and rounded, clear treble. Along with a very comfortable neck, fingerboard and set-up, this makes it a delightful instrument to play. At roughly half the price of a new one, this is a good opportunity.
