Slightly used in very good condition, the tone of this Rouse spruce top is textured, with ample overtones yet excellent clarity and balance.

A wonderful synthesis of the Spanish and Northern European styles.

Playability is a breeze thanks to the slightly elevated fingerboard and its slender and comfortable neck profile.

Suitable for any size auditorium – also a wonderful recording instrument.

David Rouse began making guitars professionally in 1991 following four years studying building instruments in London.

He pays much attention to detail, his craftsmanship follows the highest standard. It’s important to him as a “maker of fine hand crafted guitars” that his love of classical and flamenco music is reflected in the guitars he produces.

He has worked hard over the years to find the fine and unique tone, concentrating on what we vaguely refer to as “tone” but also on all the qualities of it: clarify; balance; consistency; separation.

He tries to make the sort of guitars that he likes to hear, guitars that are both powerful and graceful, vivacious and melancholic, subtle and strong.

David works continuously to keep developing and refining his guitars to make them objects of profound musical expression and visual beauty.

The overall build is lightweight, therefore the sound is surprisingly huge with a rich color palette…

The tone is textured, with ample overtones yet excellent clarity and balance – a wonderful synthesis of the Spanish and Northern European styles.

Rouse likes to keep the top as lightly braced as possible for the purpose of allowing for the maximum freedom in vibration.

Under the fingerboard, at the slipper, he uses two supports between the top and the back to make the neck/body junction very strong but very light.

Playability is a breeze thanks to the slightly elevated fingerboard and its slender and comfortable neck profile.

Suitable for any size auditorium – also a wonderful recording instrument.
