-Hand made in Germany with European woodworking.
Dreadnought cutaway-form for easy access to acute.
-Wood: spruce top, back & sides ebony fingerboard, inlaid rosette.
-Electronics: Lakewood / Lakewood Sonic System Shadow: a microphone under the bridge of the guitar and a 2 nd magnetic pickup in the neck, under the key. (For more info see http://fr.lakewood.de/Electronics / sonic.htm ( http://fr.lakewood.de/Electronics/sonic.htm ) )
Channel pleasant to play, access to acute is easy (14 th cargo at the junction of the handle + cutaway).
-The guitar is pretty light, I can play for hours on their feet without feeling its weight on my shoulder.
the amp settings are in the rosette then splice the guitar is not pierced.
a volume of + a + pitch a "blend" that mix the sounds of two microphones.
Sound without amplification:
this guitar has a gloss like finish his thanks to the combination of spruce and ebony. the sound is rich and full, no noise.
a very great regularity sound that is played at the top or bottom of the inning.
sound when plugged:
"It was already amazing but now it kills."
Perfect reproduction of the sound of the guitar, not a breath, the settings are sufficient since it sounds perfectly in the whole frequency range (when you love a brilliant and slamming). The tone control allows you to add if low we love the warm sound.
the balance between the two microphones can adapt the sound to his playing (picking, folk, jazz ...)
Difficult to give anything but a 10 in this guitar.
is close to Martin & Co but better (everything is hand made and wood are selected Minucia, the electronics are flawless).
Other versions of this guitar exist with other woods to a different sound but what is certain is that this range of guitar is high quality, well ahead of the models of other brands I've experienced (Takamine, Alvarez ... exception may be the model of Seagull Artist that are of quality but the sound does not suit me.)
I use it mainly to play Celtic, and also to register in my home studio. it is a true happiness and besides it is beautiful.
Celtic guitarists friends, leave your side and Martin & Co are going to try this guitar, you do not tighten disappointed.
The budget may put off some but once this guitar in the hands we are ready for any sacrifice.
