Description

Simon Fay’s Model One is easy on the eyes, easy on the hands, easy on the ears. This multiscale beauty comes to us from 2015 in impeccable shape, Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, and German Spruce top. 25.5” on the bass to 25” on the treble, the fanned fretboard is a great candidate for standard pitch and more exotic tunings without confusing the left hand. Gold EVO frets insure longevity between fret jobs, and the slim neck profile is oh so smooth in hand. Bass response offers a sweet blooming effect after the initial attack, which lends itself well to DADGAD. This Simon Fay Model One is a prime example of the contemporary fingerstyle guitar: agile, responsive, and dynamic.

Simon Fay builds a very clean and beautiful instrument, and the tone is also to me very clean and beautiful. It’s articulate and expressive, and the woods here are primo quality. A very refined and musical guitar for sure.
