Description

Mike Byle's Sifel Creek Guitars have been cooking up splendid guitars for years now, and recently sent us two beauties which he's had in his shop as show models for a few years now. This, his 15.5" Cutaway, is done up in a pretty set of Madagascar Rosewood for the back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top with some gorgeous alternating color across the grain. Set up for a nimble left hand, this guitar plays like milk chocolate tastes: absolutely smooth.

Dynamically voiced by Byle, the responsiveness of the 15.5" Cutaway manages to strike a balance between a delicate touch and a more aggressive attack, meaning that soft passages sound full-figured and delicate but when you need to dig in for some extra snap (say, for a Funk-Blues bass line), the voice cranks up to volume 11 with ease. Craving overtones in your trebles? These unwound strings are adorned with a subtle array of overtones which blossom a moment after the fundamental response.

You'll be hard-pressed to find another guitar so exquisitely balanced. Although this guitar was built in 2010, it's enjoyed a posh existence in Mike's shop, and as such is still a brand new guitar (plus a few years of opening up).

Plays like velvet with a voice that's just as rich. The bass register has well-defined depths and pair well with the other registers.
 
With all of the warmth and clarity you'd want from any guitar, this one also has a nice simple elegance that is pretty special. It is great fun to play as well. I had a hard time putting it down.
