Description

A rich and resonant offering from Florida-based luthier Robert Desmond, this 2002 Classical in Brazilian Rosewood and Spruce has opened up into a sweet and resonant force to be reckoned with. Playability across the neck is smooth and comfortable, and position markers at the fifth and seventh frets help to orient your left hand without detracting from Desmond's traditional aesthetic elsewhere.

There's a sweet swell of overtones in the upper register which bloom a moment after a note is struck, adding a rich and full-figured tone to your arrangements. The bass response is vigorous but well-balanced with the other registers and fills out, rather than overpowers, the voice. This 2002 Desmond is in excellent condition and is ready for many more years of sweet music!

The treble overtones blew me away. They give an extra drop of color to the mix and fill out to the guitar's prolonged sustain.
