  • Comments:

    Another example of Stephen Frith's craft - a responsive instrument with design influence from Hauser and Romanillos; light in weight, this time with beautiful maple back & sides. The sound is clear and bright but still with a warmth and depth of bass coming from the F# body resonance. Stephen's guitars offer a wide range of sound from rich, deep tasto to bright ponticellos. These are really very good instruments and are very comfortable to play. This model is offered at lower, very attractive price compared with the maker's standard rosewood guitar.
