The second guitar from the Santa Barbara show that Paul hand picked from Italian luthier Noemi Schembri, this 2014 SJ is the balanced, expressive, and lightweight solution to all your needs. Clean and loud whether with flatpicks or fingertips--you'll love the consistently bright and responsive voice for everything from DADGAD ballads to Bluegrass solos. The treble strings are very present, and complement the dry bark of the middle registers, themselves balanced by the crisp bass notes.
Noemi's lightweight builds are exceptionally comfortable to play, and this SJ is no exception. It's been a while since we've heard a Madagascar-Rosewood-and-Sitka-Spruce guitar with so much gravel and bark in its voice, making this a good choice if you're inclined to Blues riffs or other more driving musical machinations. Dynamic and precise, projective and controlled, this SJ from Noemi Schembri is a bombshell of a guitar.

"Noemi's got a great thing going with her voicing. The middle registers are warm but articulate and really help fill out the tone when you're strumming. The Sitka has very pretty alternating bands of color to boot, and the wider C shape neck is easy on the hands and supportive for fretting. " - Paul Heumiller
"Impressive guitar with lots of character and a unique quality that is pleasing and responsive.
