  • Comments:

    Stephen Eden is 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 cedar one has the power and richness to be expected from cedar with a strongly-projecting treble that has plenty of clarity and sparkle, more like spruce.
    These are professional standard performance instruments at very reasonable price and giving much more expensive guitars a serious run for their money.
    A terrific guitar - Highly recommended.
