    Guild F-2512E - Disappointing for a Guild

    by on 06-26-2018 06:04 PM My musical style is a folk-country style--flatpicked alternating between strumming and arpeggiated chords. The guitar is well-made from a construction standpoint. No loose joins or bracing. No s...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Roland CR-78 - Full of vintage charm

    by on 06-03-2018 06:29 AM I bought it on the spur of the moment, only realizing afterward how iconic it was (a good thing for me!). Of course, its sounds felt familiar and though it is mostly a preset machine you always hav...Read more on Audiofanzine
