Please note that recordings have been made at different times and in varying recording environments. Therefore, it is difficult to accurately portray the true sound of the guitar in order to make a direct comparison. Nevertheless, I hope that these recordings give some idea of the sound quality of the guitars.[hr style=”3″ margin=”40px 0px 40px 0px”]
