    A Warm Dread

    Norman ST68Published on 09/11/14 at 05:01
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Made in Canada
    Back & Sides: Solid Rosewood
    Neck: Mahogany
    Top: Solid spruce
    Fingerboard & Bridge: Ebony
    Finish: high gloss Custom Polished
    Nut and bridge Tusq® Graphtech

    UTILIZATION

    A satin finish neck Extralight super nice
    A Dreadnought a bit heavy. Bottom and sides rosewood probably a little thick. The table seems to be against rather fine and well vibrant.
    Gloss sheen over the entire box, rather thin on the table and less on the rest.

    Received today, good smell of wood has invaded my little office / studio.
    Accurate guitar for Dread with sufficient projection due to the combination of wood and table well fine harmony.

    Accurate guitar for Dread with sufficient projection due to the combination of wood and table well fine harmony.

    SOUNDS

    Requires a bit of power in the game. Action is a little low for bourinage in good standing but I expected it took the humidity of the room or I play to see.
    Anyway the game is very nimble strumming rich grave with a small hollow in the midrange. Sound more Gibson than Martin or Taylor.
    Picking the game reveals a nice balance with a nice jacket and a grain a bit too neutral for my taste (well, the guitar is super cool aussi..a again in a few times ...)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I play a Les Pauls and a small lag minijumbo that I take everywhere. I wanted a Dreadnought a little studio to keep a home ...
    I tried the Yamaha L16 series, very neutral, heavier than Norman, varnish too thick that neutralizes a little good vibrations. Somewhat industrial in appearance.
    A Furch D40, reasonably priced, with a nice sound, but less powerful than the Norman power just a little attack, cedar varnish open pores that I'm afraid to be more vulnerable.
    Taylor 210..bof
    A Gibson J15, friendly but very typical. Lack of substain, projection but good feeling in struming débridé..un little punk / rock J15
    A martin D15 ... do not make me vibrated ..
    a Martin D16Gt, great projection, with its medium grain and a really nice ... it's made me hesitate a long time ... but Norman is far more accurate

    Norman ST 68

    Norman ST68Published on 07/04/02 at 15:00
    I wanted a quality Martin or Gibson at a reasonable price, but I could find the deal I was looking for.

    I played a Norman in California on my honeymoon. It sounded great. I wanted to buy it but I needed to retain the cash for obvious reasons. When I returned to Florida I couldn't find a Norman anywhere. I went to the net and bought the ST 68 for about 600 bucks. It has been worht every penny.

    It has a great balanced sound. It is a very strong resonating guitar. It is an attractive instrument as well.

    If anything it would be that the head doesn't seem to be as perfect as the rest of the guitar. It could be a little better finished.

    Solid Spruce top. (800 yr. old trees, tight grain)
    Mahogany back and sides
    Not sure of the neck, I believe it is rosewood

    I highly recommend any Norman guitar except the B 15 because it isn't a solid top. You won't find a better quality guitar than Norman for the price. I would match the sound and playability against the best.
