The sound is rich and full I especially love the deep bass registers but the balance between bass treble and bass is excellent.
Guitar arrived safely and what a beauty she is , gorgeous rich sound.
It is beautiful I love it the sound is stunning so bright and vibrant , the look is perfect understated clean and natural .
As soon as I opened the case it was love at first sight , it is beautifully made and the finish is very fine , it presents itself with so many new dimensions in sound .
I have been playing some Bach koshkin and other pieces all day and discovered a wonderful range of tone colours .
What is very striking is the intimacy of the instrument yet capable of so much projection , the balance and clarity is very satisfying .
Once again i congratulate you on your artistry and i feel privileged to own such beautifully crafted instrument .
This instrument shows projection balance and a second to none tonal range perfect for concert performances.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Mark Arnott and his superb craftsmanship .
I build in the traditional Spanish way using the Spanish heel method of construction working face down on a solera , I prefer to use only hand tools for every procedure using hand tools I believe is the only way to get the optimal tonal response from each component and the ideal thicknesses on the front and back to get the best balance between stiffness and flexibility which isn't possible blindly feeding timber through sanding machines . I Make three basic models at the moment ! The first is closely based on a Torres design which is available in two slightly different body sizes which have traditional 7 strut fan bracing . The second is based on a Fleta which has a quite large body . The third model is a Lattice braced but traditionally lightly built similar to my Torres model but with lattice bracing this can also be built in two different body sizes all guitars are standard 650 mm scale lengths other scale lenghths available on request ., fingerboard width is 52mm as standard but can be varied to customers taste . I have used various different timber types over the years and have had excellent results with all of them for backs & sides I have used Indian Rosewood Maple Wenge Walnut Padauk Mahogany For soundboards I use European Spruce. Sitka Spruce Western Red Cedar I can offer a good selection of different rosettes for the customer to choose from . The Testimonials Section shows genuine comments from previous customers . I use good quality Gotoh machine heads as standard which can be upgraded on request . The guitars are supplied with a good quality hardcase .
