  • Comments:

    Stephen Eden having learned his craft from Stephen Hill and Pablo Requena some time ago, has really found his stride producing consistently persuasive instruments that work very well in all departments - they have depth, good balance, clear rounded treble, plenty of volume and good playing comfort. This one has a rich bass combined with a clear, projecting treble and plenty of volume.
    These are professional standard performance instruments still at very reasonable price and giving much more expensive guitars a serious run for their money.
