Spruce Classical Completed
The Engelmann Spruce Classical guitar is now completed and I’m very pleased with it. All of my recent guitars have been commissions, so I felt that I didn’t have anything that was representative of my current work. So this guitar was built very much as a demonstrator. It can be quite embarrassing if you haven’t got a guitar to show a prospective client! That said most clients have usually played one of my instruments and come to me on recommendation.
The guitar sounds and looks good (even if I say so myself!) and I feel represents excellent value for money. The problem with guitar buyers is that they really don’t realise that they can have a truly world-class instrument, built to their specification for less cash than big name brands. Once I talk to a client they’re always amazed by the options that are available to them, the quality and attention to detail.
