Acoustic guitar for sale
VINTAGE VIATOR Paul Brett travel acoustic guitarTweet
11 July 2016 - United Kingdom - Bedford - Leighton Buzzard
Brand new and virtually unplayed. Won in a competition and surplus to requirements. No bag but the warranty card is included. At 130 this is a bargain (usual price new is around 200). Cash on collection only please.
It’s well made and nicely finished. The sound is articulate and projects well for such a compact guitar. To see it in action search “Paul Brett Vintage Viator” on YouTube.
There’s an objective review from Guitarist Magazine on the Musicradar site (Google: “musicradar vintage viator review”)
Here’s Paul Brett’s blurb for Vintage:
""This guitar will suit both beginners and professionals who want to have a great sounding and affordable guitar that they can fit into small spaces for travelling convenience. My inspiration for this guitar came from the early 20th century style of guitars and the sound the Viator produces both in fingerstyle and strumming modes is very much reminiscent of that era. I have tried most styles on it, from blues, jazz, plectrum and picking through to classical, folk and open tunings – and yes, with lighter strings on it will play beautifully in Terz tuning. Vintage, again, have done a fantastic job in reproducing my design and I can't wait for it to spread its wings and travel afar. The Viator is one little packet of dynamite!”
