This one is as articulate as it is loud. It cuts through a mix beautifully, and I don’t just mean well. . .I mean beautifully. It’s voice is dry, but warm, with great texture across the mids and plenty of punch in the bass. It’s the kind of guitar that loves single note runs. Just one of it’s mighty strings could put all six on an inferior instrument to shame.
Being a “bluegrass” model, the top has been carefully selected and braced for volume and “cut”. The braces have been shaped for maximum responsiveness and are taut and ready to flex with the slightest swipe of a plectrum. To really get it roaring, though, you have to dig in a bit. It’s not a guitar for a shy individual. It is clean, earthy, and direct. It craves adventure in dark hollers.
