Fabrication de guitare sur mesure 

Acoustic guitar can be a tricky instrument to record well, but since I got my David Antony Reid guitar - problem solved! It just seems to sit perfectly in the mix, without any of the lumpy, boomy tone I get with so many of the 'big name' acoustics. Martins, Gibsons, Guilds, I've had them all in my studio and this Reid guitar beats them all, hands down!
