GUEST,Green Man New guitar recommendations (53* d) RE: New guitar recommendations 22 Jul 03


Some years ago I got sandbagged by a 'mate' who runs a music shop in Worcester. Het Dave he said you have to try this. Being a lefty I was interested and then he handed me a Northworthy Guitar. Never heard of em I said and sat in his tryout room with this lovely handmade English style guitar. Well at the time I was between venues and couldnt afford it so I bought it anyway. (Afer asking She who Must be Obeyed).

It's a Carsington (model) and it sings. I am on the large size so the extra 3/16" on the fingerboard width was welcome. I play it fingerstlye or with a flatpick. Its amazing. Northworthy have a lead time of about 4 months on some models. The woods are all top notch.

I have tried other makes such as Martin and Older Epiphone's, this just puts them all in the shade. I realise it may not be to your taste but at least it's worth a look.

Good Luck in your quest.
Green Man
