  • My first from Dake Traphagen.

    This is exactly what I was expecting from Dake. It has remarkable definition with each note sounding true and clear from the lowest bass note to the highest treble the volume and presence of tone is the same. This leads to equally outstanding projection and an incredibly articulate guitar.

    Its full warm and clear and responds equally well to the lightest touch or a more vociferous approach. What more could you ask?

  • Alan Carruth OOO-14.

    In many ways twelve frets to the body and a cutaway is the perfect combination. It gives the sweetness of the more centred bridge position and allows access all the way to the top fret.

    It definately works on this beauty from Alan. The first thing that struck me about this guitar is its lightness and ease of play, it feels like a much smaller guitar. It sounds fantastic, rich and resonant with full and well defined bass notes, complex and expressive mids, clear, precise bell-like trebles and great balance and projection. What a beaut!

  • Stephen Strahm's guitar is nearly finished. I can't wait to hear this one, I can still clearly remember Stephen's amazing tone from the Memphis show.
