Description

So, I have had the opportunity to play this sweet little guitar. Very light weight, snappy response, a lot of brilliance (that´s why I chose to play more with my fingertips and less nail and dropped the thumbpick) - but not lacking bass either. (Took me awhile though to get used to the wider string spacing, both at the nut and the bridge.) The detailing on the guitar is something special, done in art deco style. http://fredellguitars.com/ Song is an old favorite I heard as a kid by Nazareth, much more folky than their other stuff. From the 1972 album "Exercises". Cheers Martin http://www.tallstrom.com
