The Venier Album

Well spent 2500.00 got a guitar.
Yet really, there are a couple things a person needs to know, about this sort of guitar.

Started out with a Cedar Top, Spanish types, had a few of them.

The cedar top has a deep warm sound on the bass side, yet the clarity is not the greatest.

So after learning a cedar top, and it's sound, I got my Grand Concert Spruce Top.

Now good spruce, in the world, is not an easy type of wood to get, even in forestry,
that is suitable for a Top.

So there are certain areas, that could be hopeful areas, with a possibility, that
the spruce found, could be good enough for top.

So to make a long story short, the Venier Album cost me a guitar.
Now simply, and I'll try to be short.

For cedar, to sound any good, (in this environment) it needs humidity.
And even more in winter.

So to get a good spruce top, close to excellent, is about 20k, and they go up from there.
Now my spruce top guitar, is book matched. ( bookmatched means where they cut, and the next cut, is the other side, two sides to a guitar top)
So one side one my spruce top is toooooo dry, and the other side isn't. So to humidify that on one side, and then
get the sound the sound. I knew for a fact, after watering it for a week, I had the ideal spruce top sound. I just knew it was ready.

Recorded, the entire album, in an hour and a half, with a smoke break.

Turned out great, some of the best I've heard written these days.

Mastered, re-mastered. And finally today, after near feild monitoring, it's got it's sound, and it's a sweet one,
deeps and clarity.

Needless to mention a year later, after hoping to make a half and half spruce top whole, it cracked.
Truth of the matter is, I'd do it again, just for that sound, or spend 20k or 40k.
Yet yea, let's make some money first.
