New Negra Guitar

02002-10-27 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

I received my DeVoe Flamenco Negra guitar on Thursday. It’s a beauty. The wood is gorgeous, the craftsmanship is impeccable and the rosette (the ring around the soundhole) perfect…I have since tried three different saddles (low, medium and high) each with normal tension and hard tension D’Addario composite strings…I don’t like changing strings, but I wanted to try every possible combination…I was worried about the Rosewood making the guitar sound a lot darker than the traditional Cypress and harder to play…today I felt that I began to understand the guitar…the combination that works for me is a medium saddle and normal tension strings….It’s too early for a definitive verdict because I have not yet recorded the guitar, but I love playing it and I love the sound of it…

I also realized that I have been playing guitar for 32 years!!! Damn, that’s a long time…
