Have just returned from taking number one son back to University in York. Took the opportunity to visit the wonderful Wild Wire guitar store in Selby and to demo a PRS Angelus with a view to buying. Specifically, this one: What a fantastic instrument, beautiful woods, well balanced tonally, quality finishing, just awesome. Here’s a photograph of the back (from and copyright the Wild Wire web site):
It’s even more impressive in the flesh. Still umming and ahhing over it.
Also visited Red Cow (a truly fantastic folk instrument shop with very helpful owners) and tried a Faith all solid trembesi guitar. Faith produce such quality instruments at such a low price point. Was also demo’ed a mandola and I think I need one to give breadth to my playing. Listening to a guitar all night can be quite fatiguing.
