  • Comments:

    Simon Ambridge guitars; even the earlier ones, display high class and a sense of good style. The decoration such as the rosette and purfling is fine-detailed and very tasteful.
    With an air resonance around G, the guitar has a warm sound with pleasing depth of bass and a smooth, refined, sweet treble. It is well-balanced and with its 64cm scale length, is very comfortable to play.
    A lovely traditional guitar in fully original, very good condition.
