2009 Bartolex -- New
Prototype -- Lattice Bracing
Up for consideration is a brand new, wonderful-sounding Bartolex 10-String classical
harp guitar, with cutaway and BBand A6T
electronics. This is brand new prototype guitar model with lattice
bracing, and it is also the model that I personally play. Click
for my review of my own
guitar (exact same model). This model is not yet in standard
production, so here is a unique chance to get this amazing guitar
without having to wait.
Bartolex is a guitar company founded by Argentinian luthier
and guitarist Neris Gonzales, with production based in
a high-quality artisian workshop in China. The result is a great
guitar design with master-grade materials and workmanship, at
a very affordable price. The sound, both acoustically and amplified,
is phenomenal. I personally am endorsing this particular model,
because I have played over a dozen gigs this year on the exact
same guitar model, and I'm continually astounded at how good
this guitar is. This guitar was the answer to my dreams, and
the specefic guitar up for sale sounds even better than my guitar!.
I have played and owned many 10-string classical harp guitars,
and this instrument rivals, equals or surpasses guitars in the
4k - 6k range. This guitar has a master-grade solid Swiss Spruce
top, and creates a very balanced sound with lively trebles, full
basses, and excellent resonance and sympathetic sustain.
* Scale = 650mm
* Top = Solid Swiss Spruce
* Back/Sides: Laminated East Indian Rosewood
* Nut width: 53 mm
* Finish: Lacquer
* BBand A6T Electronics
* Model: SLS10CEL
* New hardshell case
* Made in China
Here are some quick MP3s, tracked using an AKG
C480 microphone with a Thiersch
M7/M8 capsule, through a Presonus
ADL 600 preamp and an Apogee
Rosetta 200 A/D converter. This guitar is very easy to
record, and would make a fine classical guitar for a solo 10-string
classical guitar CD or for recording nylon string harp guitar
tracks in other music styles:
In short, it is a great concert and/or amplified guitar for
any intermediate to advanced-level player, and it would make
a great guitar for local classical gigs, concerts, and recording
