Description

The combination of Italian Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood is to fingerstyle guitars what lettuce and tomatoes are to sandwiches: the perfect complement. This 2010 Classical from Santa Fe, New Mexico-based luthier Michael Thames is just the sort of perfection you need, if you're interested in a guitar with clear, present bass notes and pronounced, articulate trebles.

The setup is silky and fast with a 650mm scale and 53mm nut, and the overall feathery weight makes for extra comfort and playability. We found there to be plenty of bark for vigorous passages, but this Thames also responded well to a lighter touch for more delicate pieces, where the meaty midrange can really shine. In splendid condition, this Thames still has a long life of music ahead of it.

The trebles are quite sweet. Across the strings and registers, the voice is balanced and without wolf tones, and I love the play feel with the 53mm nut.
