Description

Ryohei Echizen is a name that's already turning heads, and there's no doubt that his renown will only continue to grow. And it's easy to see why: his technique is astounding. This is the second Echizen we've gotten in the shop, and if we could get our hands on more, we would do so in an instant. This new R1 redefines the word "impressive." With a flatpick, the R1 is nuanced and expressive. With fingertips, orchestral. The combination of European Spruce and Madagascar Rosewood ensure rich trebles and an even bass response, with a delicate, angelic overtone palette. Its voice is controlled, elegant--the R1 has poise--and with Ryohei's inclusion of a soundport that clear and present bass flows unimpeded to the player's ear. With flawless balance across strings and registers, this guitar will breathe new life into your fingerstyle arrangements. Ryohei's craftsmanship is top shelf, every motif executed perfectly--and not surprising, given his apprenticeship with Sergei de Jonge in Chelsea Canada. What is surprising, though, is Ryohei has achieved this level of mastery in only his tenth guitar after striking out on his own, following his apprenticeship. Think of it this way: if Ryohei's already this good, imagine how much richer the guitar world will be for his knowledge and skill in the years to come!

This is the second guitar we have had in from Ryohei, and the consistency I have seen from him so far would make me believe that he has been building for thirty years. Tonally, I would have a hard time picking out a more balanced guitar, it's gorgeous, and the sideport really gives the player a better idea of whats going on. The French Polish finish is gorgeous and thin for optimal resonance.
 
This is an excellent guitar in many ways. The tone is balanced and clean and it feels great.
