  • Comments:

    Another fine example of Stephen Frith's craft - but unusually this time a cedar-fronted instrument, quite light in weight, with influences from extensive study with José & Liam Romanillos. It has a robust, powerful feel about it - and with depth of bass coming from the body resonance between F & F# combined with a productive, well-balanced and interesting treble that has clarity, sweetness and sustain. Stephen's guitars offer a wide range of sound from rich deep tasto to bright ponticellos. These are really very good instruments, very comfortable to play and still at a very reasonable price.
