  • Comments:

    Another fine example of Stephen Frith's craft - a responsive, Hauseresque instrument, with influences from extensive study with José & Liam Romanillos. Depth of bass comes from the F# body resonance combined with a productive, well-balanced, interesting treble with clarity, sweetness and sustain. Stephen's guitars offer a wide range of sound from rich deep tasto to bright ponticellos and their projection is very effective. These are really very good instruments, very comfortable to play and still at a very reasonable price.
