Customer reviews

“I received my guitar yesterday afternoon. Thank you very much for seeing the delivery through. I have it just in time to fly off on my Easter Holiday.
Congratulations, you really have nailed this design. The sound from what is essentially a Parlor guitar is just unbelievable! You weren’t kidding when you promised it would be loud. The pickup is also great and it plays as good as some of my other instruments that cost me (at least) more than twice what this one did. It’s comfortable to play with great resonance. No YouTube video can really do it justice, as more people get to hear and play this you are on a winner, it speaks for itself. But I’m sure you already know all this!

Well done and thanks again for making such a beautiful (and practical) instrument.”

Tony from Australia – FP412

“I’ve bought plenty of guitars sight unseen, and been disappointed and had to sell them shortly after, as it’s easy to say in advertising that they have good tone and projection. So I was secretly worried about this one. Right out of the box, and before I’ve put my favorite strings on it, I’m overjoyed! It sounds really nice. It must be that Manzer wedge. It feels solid and sounds great picking, strumming, and plugged in. I’m a fan! So stoked.”

Jake from Washington – FP412
