A very loud guitar with a beautiful singing voice. It opens up quickly as it is played, that is the wonder of Engelmann spruce, it opens up almost as fast as western red cedar.

Here is what Alex Komodore, Director of Guitar Studies at Metropolitan State University, Denver, said about this guitar:

There is nothing wrong with this guitar! It is loud with great clarity and note separation - and it has a bite to its voice!


Steve Mullins, a flamenco guitarist based in Boulder, Colorado said this - This guitar is incredible! It has a lot to give and it keeps on giving! From clear basses to singing trebles, this guitar will make someone very happy!

  1. Wilson, I stand by what I have said in the past about the walnut Martinez-style: it is a joy to play, day in and day out. The scale and neck width are well-suited to my hands, which are not large and are increasingly arthritic, these days! As for its voice, it glows, once a new set of stings is played in: crisp enough in the upper registers, "loud enough" but not mushy in the low end. I note that you do not plan to make more, which I guess might be a response to there being little demand among classical players for what seems to be a near ancestor of the more usual instrument. "Their" loss, sayeth this deponent; the Martinez's balance of sweet tone, great playability and compactness make it my "vademecum"--the guitar that can go -- and does! -- with me. It will head east with me to the "Frets and Refrains" guitar camp, taught by Richard Thompson, Martin Carthy and others, next month.
