Description

Australian maker Chris Melville counts as his clients Tommy Emmanuel and Tony McManus, so you know this is a worldclass guitar. This 000 is skillfully crafted from premium Indian Rosewood and Master Grade Italian Spruce. The top wood is key to any guitar's voice and this top is lovely. Flamed Maple bindings and gold tuners add just a touch of panache that makes this guitar shine on the wall as well. This is a guitar for the player seeking a precise and versatile guitar that can be coaxed into expressing any way you like. Superb.

Ever since I played Tony McManus' Melville guitar I've been a fan. Chris offers a voice full of clarity and emotion all at once. This guitar is like new and has great headroom and dynamic range. A serious guitar for anyone who wants a guitar with nuance and expression.
 
The tone of this guitar is kind of sweet and mellow. It's easy to play and sounds good in a number of styles including flatpicking styles.
