The table is solid cedar, satin-matt. The head is dull black and bears the logo "SIMON & PATRICK LUTHIER" of the era ... a little older and less beautiful than the design of today.
In beginners, the handle seemed big (I just electric). Today I got used to it and I feel comfortable trs compared to other acoustic guitars. No cutaway on this not really MODEL Access in acute, but this guitar is not made to have either.
Ergonomics: a course excs: it is not comfortable when forcment onn plays standing up (like most standard size dreadnought)
On his fate alone. In the beginners j'tais trssduit makes sound amplifier that seemed trs sound and not at all electric color. My opinion on this point has not changed except that I also love the sound of the scratching unplugged, due especially since I play with strong ties (I play on the acoustic 13 -55), this n'tait that not the case when I bought it.
I play everything on this guitar, but mostly pop, rock and blues (and even the bottle neck: it is not for cell rings but trs honorably. It sounds good in all circumstances.
Overall the sound is crystalline, full of harmonics Dfine but remains very dynamic. The projection is powerful unplugged.
I play live and the sound comes out perfect. Obviously I do not use effects.
She goes well on rhythmic particulirement consistent type beatles (genre pieces McCartney harmonies with rich and labores). Trs rich sound of this guitar gives ample support trs.
I bought new 10 years ago. I paid about 4,500 FF the era (ie 680 euros). In the era it seems relatively CHRE me (but the era-Electric n'taient not too modest prices today. I had the era t sduit the table in matt satin finish. This kind of finish the original silent era trs. trs Unfortunately it is also fragile, and now my guitar bears the trace of many shocks or scratches. It's a shame, but my eyes makes a captivating: it is a guitar that has a lot jou. She is in love juice and a. I bought it on a favorite for sound amplification. But I do not think I would take as much pleasure to play unplugged APRS 10 years. I would do much the same choice today sr. And since this ct on occasion it seems, even for 3 or 4 times the price the argus, I do not sell.

FreddyBear's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- Manufacturing in Canada by Simon & Patrick is a trademark of luthier related Godin
- Finishing 'spruce' (spruce) matte - a beauty, of course, the finiton matte is more sensitive in the sense that small scratches does not allow polish without a trace.
- Micro B-Band (thinner than a piezo and better sound)
- B-Band Preamp 3.2 (volume, treble, bass, middle, presence) very effective
- Handle very well done very enjoyable from the first moment
- Easy access to acute because of the cutaway, but obviously not comparable with g. power. Easy battery change, due to a separate compartment at the bottom of the guitar
- Very good ergonomics
- I play mostly fingerpicking arrangements but - like folk, blues, world (because I do not mean that I can play jazz)
- I love the sound of a classical guitar and acoustic guitars I do not like at all if they have acute penetrating too. I like a balanced sound. And here I fell in love from the first moment.
I tried over a dozen different guitars in different price categories (different yamaha, martin, taylor, ovation) cheap guitars and Yamaha were quickly out of competition and I always came back to S & P. The only one that surpassed the taste was in my Taylor - but for a multiple of the price of the S & P.
- In acoustics, the sound is very balanced, well-defined and has very good bass. I think the clarity of the sound comes first timber but also because the surface is matte and has a very thin layer of varnish.
- I bought the guitar mainly for its acoustics, but by connecting it, I was disappointed, not because of the sound of the pickup (which I find very good - better than a conventional piezo) but the fact that strings were not well balanced. After analysis, the problem really is that the microphone is very thin and very sensitive to pressure differences. It cost me one or two afternoons working on the bridge to get a good balance - but hey, it may be that I am a bit of a perfectionist ...
- My amp is an AER-Compact60 which has a special circuit to increase the treble and for 'dépiézoifier' sound - here, we do not need it. The sound is quite natural.
I still give a 10 for the acoustic sound
For his electroacoustic after adjustment, I would give a 8 / 10 (before I set a 5 / 10)
I have the guitar for two months
I love it for its acoustics, its finish, wood, touch.
Quality / price ratio: EXCELLENT
I would do this choice, but I would try to get maybe the same or higher with a model system with two microphones B-Band (AST and UST), which apparently improves (making it more natural) still sound ' connected 'and that also reduces inequality in volume between the strings.
