Allan Holdsworth (International Musician 1981)

Dick Knight is making me a spurce (sic) solid at the moment, I wonder what the experts make of that. My reason for trying it is because the timber is very light and I tend to get a better sound when I start with a light body. One day I’d like to get a guitar made like a Gibson L7, something that’s smaller than a Gibson Super 400, lighter with a larger scale. I like the clearer sound from a cello (‘f’ hole) guitar - Charlie Christian was my hero. Round hole guitars sound a little on the boomy side to my ears. I’ve used an Ibanez L5 type cello guitar for recording that wasn’t bad.
