• There was no doubt

    As a guitar player I’m always interested in fine instruments, Wil passed the ‘virus’ with true stories about luthiers searching for the best trees of more than 100 years old, the selection of precious tone woods, and handcrafting instruments. After several years of playing guitar I actually was looking for an unique piece, with a good fit for my left hand, great looks and above all, a splendid sound. While looking around several times in Wil’s shop and a reference from a ’64 Martin D-28 in my head, many options passed, until…. ‘my’ Rozawood Masterworks Artcraft arrived. Packed in an off-white case and when opened, a marvelous smell of wood tickling my nose. Very fine inlays, an attractive body in Grand Auditorium shape, ‘dressed’ in perfect dark brown color with a high gloss finish. Hand build by Roman Zajíček and most important: it’s astonishing sound. Rich in the mids, clear sparkling highs and as a thunder in the low ends. Playing it, felt as homecoming after a long trip, as a warm reunion with your dearest family. Together with the knowledge and guidance of Wil and comparison with other brands, there was no doubt. While playing it for 6 month now, it’s only sounding nicer every day, and when opening its case, still the smell of the Hawaii koa sides and back, leaves you in the middle of the forest where it once started….. Thanks Wil. Rob
