Description

How does Marc Beneteau manage to create a guitar with such pinpoint clarity and startling depth? It's like peering into a deep pool of water in the middle of winter, listening to this 2016 M model: you can see clear to the bottom, and it's a long way down. Each string is powerful, and powerfully balanced with the others, rendering the voice complex, but bracingly articulate. If fingerstyle is your game, this Beneteau M in Granadillo and Alaskan Sitka Spruce is a dream come true. The setup works wonders for flatpicking too: in DADGAD, Standard, or elsewhere, the play feel remains silky and effortless.

With a Venetian Cutaway and Ryan-style arm bevel your player comfort is further enhanced, and with the addition of a small soundport in the upper bout you get a sweet extra dose of bass right to your ear. It's not hard to understand why so many of of Canada's top guitar virtuosos play Marc's guitars--there's a precision, clarity, and depth of tone to his guitars which many luthiers aim for, but only a few achieve. Marc's the latter for sure.

I see heaps of fabulous guitars in this line of work; it's why I got into it in the first place. Marc's guitars, however, always stand out from the crowd, and there's no denying that. This M feels intimate in my hands, and the voice already sounds like a much older instrument. As this one continues to open up, I can't begin to imagine how much richer and more dynamic the tone will become!
 
A bit warmer quality to the tone on this guitar compared to his standard cutaway, but still a great instrument with loads of response in all frequencies.
