Description

Playing one of Ryohei Echizen's guitars is like picking up your favorite book: each time, you feel the same rush of excitement you felt when you first opened the cover. These guitars sing with an almost elemental force, all lightning-strike response with a muscular fundamental and a silk-smooth setup. Here we have a new R2 with Madagascar Rosewood and Bearclaw European Spruce, and folks, you'll be hard-pressed to find a finer example of either tonewood. Bent into the elegant and timeless curves of his R2, their song is precision-balanced and ferociously articulate; a fingerstylist's dream.

Further, Echizen's craftsmanship is almost as astounding as the quality of his voicing: French Polished body, understated Madasgascar Rosewood rosette, Boblen tuners Jescar EVO frets, hide glue, you name it, he's done it. Despite the fact that he's only been building by himself for a short period of time after his apprenticeship with Sergei de Jonge in Chelsea, Canada, Echizen's guitars already possess the presence and confidence of our contemporary masters' instruments.

The voice of this instrument just takes me away, I love it. The sound blossoms as it rises from the guitar and seems to get stronger and linger all on it's own. This smaller body and rich wood combination make it a perfect fingerstyle guitar and inspiring songwriting companion. Very sweet indeed. The French Polish finish is gorgeous and thin for optimal resonance.
 
Elegant design with very low action and a beautiful appointments. Plays like a dream
