Mike Byle has been cooking up splendid guitars for years now, and recently sent us two beauties which he's had in his shop as show models for a few years now. This, his 15.5" Cutaway, is done up in a pretty set of Madagascar Rosewood for the back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top with some gorgeous alternating color across the grain. Set up for a nimble left hand, this guitar plays like milk chocolate tastes: absolutely smooth.

Dynamically voiced by Byle, the responsiveness of the 15.5" Cutaway manages to strike a balance between a delicate touch and a more aggressive attack, meaning that soft passages sound full-figured and delicate but when you need to dig in for some extra snap (say, for a Funk-Blues bass line), the voice cranks up to volume 11 with ease. Craving overtones in your trebles? These unwound strings are adorned with a subtle array of overtones which blossom a moment after the fundamental response.

You'll be hard-pressed to find another guitar so exquisitely balanced. Although this guitar was built in 2010, it's enjoyed a posh existence in Mike's shop, and as such is still a brand new guitar (plus a few years of opening up).

New Sifel Creek Guitars 15.5" Cutaway -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Plays like velvet with a voice that's just as rich. The bass register has well-defined depths and pair well with the other registers." - Paul Heumiller

"With all of the warmth and clarity you'd want from any guitar, this one also has a nice simple elegance that is pretty special. It is great fun to play as well. I had a hard time putting it down.
"
- Al Petteway
