Description: Acoustic Guitar - Smallman
The first time I played this guitar I was astonished. I had never played a guitar with such depth of sound, such volume, such presence. This lattice braced guitar represented a design that brought the guitar to a more equal footing with other instruments and voices in an ensemble. It has a luscious, lovely, woody sound that fills a hall and inspires the player.
It is a particularly "fast" guitar with great sensitivity.
This guitar was built entirely by Greg Smallman in 1984. (Recent guitars from this shop are built with his sons.) It has been in regular professional use since its birth but it is in excellent condition. Signs of wear are minimal, just minor nails marks. The cedar top was touched up by Yuris Zeltins about 10 years ago. He refretted it at that time and added some superb Sloan tuning machines.
Nothing is needed to be done to the guitar.
Smallmans have been played by J. Williams and a slew of other world's best players. This guitar is a world class instrument offered at an attractive price.
