 My customer Patrick Smits was so enthusiastic about the guitars he got from me that he sent me some sound clips of what they sound like.  It's very hard to describe musical sounds with words. I hope this page grows with examples from many of my customers' sound clips.
    I'm jazzed about this project. I meet a lot of players and they all seem to want to share their music. I'm hoping this page will become a forum for sharing.
    I'm soliciting sound clips. The only criterion are that they be on my guitars (Montalvo or Superior); that I know what model guitar is being used, and that they be of fairly good sound quality.

The first link is to Patrick Smits' Page Jorge Montalvo Guitar examples . He has examples of a Cypress and Engelmann Concert Cut-away Flamenco guitar, and a Concert Classic made with Cocobolo and Engelmann Spruce, with a Cut-away

Hawaiian guitar clip:

Here's a little ditty that Mathias Hagenah (Matzy)
sent us from Germany. It's called 12th September (click)
This is the note that came with it:
I just recorded a song I found on You Tube
with the new Superior.
It´s originally by Xavier Rudd and I didn´t
play it 100 % good.
Though I had no Didgeridoo (like in the Original)
I tried my self in a kind of Hosoo Singing. :)
Nice Guitar.
