Paul Sheridan makes very few guitars per year and we have the chance to have one guitar per year. This lattice classical guitar is beyond our expectations: a lattice classical guitar offering a huge fruity and round sound, big basses with a lot of colours. Among the best guitar we have ever had.
Paul Sheridan belongs to the luthiers who have created the lattice concept guitar.
His guitar offers greater ease of playability and dynamics. By dynamics, I mean the ability of the guitar to respond to both aggressive and gentle right-hand techniques. The sound is rather pure and warm. The balance is great.
Here is some information taken from Paul’s website :
« With the considerable extra time and effort it takes to carefully produce a lattice braced guitar, who would do it unless they were totally committed to their own sound image? The over-riding guide for me is, quite simply, musicality. In other words, whatever makes the instrument more musical for the player, the audience and the maker, should be pursued, even if this means one has to move away, to some degree or other, from what is commonly held as the traditional way. Looking at it another way, tradition is an ongoing process. Just ask torres.
All my current instruments are lattice braced in either spruce (Swiss, Canadian or American) or W.R.cedar, with back and sides available in a range of woods. I use the great old faithful, Indian Rosewood, as well as others like Cocobolo, Stripey Ebony, and Australian woods like Tiger Myrtle, Fiddleback Blackwood, Jarrah etc. The backs are laminated with the dome back, which means there is no internal bracing. Very neat! My current choice of wood for necks is Tasmanian Oak, a very stable and strong creamy coloured wood which is a beautiful match for all the woods I use on the backs and sides, and it’s performance surpasses mahogany, maple or cedar. The instruments come with a 640mm scale length which allows for greater ease while playing, without detracting from the sound. I also build requinto guitars. »
