2015 Millman Custom 00 – £1499
NEW ARRIVAL Based in Devon, and having studied under Brook guitars, James Millman is fast gaining a reputation as an outstanding British luthier. His guitars have a very natural feel to them, traditionally built using hand tools and minimal jigs. Wherever possible he uses local, native and reclaimed timbers, and all his guitars are finished with a hand rubbed, organic oil finish and French polish. This custom built example features a quilted Mahogany body, with an Ebony fingerboard and pyramid bridge, and an Ebony soundhole rosette is a classy touch. Tonally the guitar has great clarity, single note separation and sustain. It fingerpicks very evenly with great balance, and as a strummer it has a dynamic punch. The guitar has a genuine hand made feel, the tone and playability of which is excellent. The guitar comes in it’s original hard case.
