“Hello Denny, I received your guitar today and what a great instrument it is! I really like it a lot. It almost sounds like a piano. Very crisp and articulate, perfectly in tune. A very musical guitar. I like the fact that it’s light weight. The neck is very easy to play everywhere, I can bend the strings easily and there’s no buzz at all. The sound is focused, full range, nice bottom, solid mids, rich and round highs. Plus, I think it looks awesome! Thank you so much, I really appreciate that guitar. Please, say hello to your father for me, I’m a big fan of his song “In The Year 2525.” I was only 8 years old when it came out but I remember it very well, even if I lived far, far away in Chicoutimi province of Quebec, Canada, and that brings me back a lot of good memories. Best regards and if you’re ever around Las Vegas and would like to see Celine’s show please let me know and I’ll be more than happy to arrange something for you. Thank you again.”
