(Originally written by Psib/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Made in the USA.

Classical guitar

Cedar top, laminated rosewood sides and back, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard.

Humphrey Millenium bracing, raised neck above the body.

UTILIZATION

Quite pleasant neck, classic profile... It's better for people with long fingers.

The special body shape is conceived for an easy access to the upper frets but it doesn't convince me.

It's the typical shape for such guitars.

Good sound projection, very good for finger picking but a little bit inaccurate with a pick.

SOUNDS

I use it for Clapton-style tunes and it is quite good. The guitar is also good for classical pieces.

OVERALL OPINION

I've owned this guitar for four years. Its main qualities are the design, the bracing and the top. It's a very rare instrument so it might be a good investment but it is really expensive.

I'm not sure if I would buy it again. Other products on the market offer the same performance for a lower price.
