As someone who is primarily a jazz player and very much accustomed to archtop guitars, this instrument is the greatest acoustic guitar imaginable. By adjusting picking style and moving closer to the bridge, this guitar can produce sounds reminiscent of flatpicking on an incredible boutique flattop (only better to my archtop honed ears)! The sparkle and high end punch typical of a flattop acoustic is supported extremely well by a cushion of warmth and depth. The low end rounds out the shimmer of the highs so well that, depending on your technique, you can produce a very convincing acoustic or archtop tone and everywhere in between!
Plugged in, this guitar is far superior to many traditional acoustics where the amplified tone is usually less than desirable. This halfling actually rounds out alot of the boxiness that plagues many amplified acoustics, and with the right eq settings you can really dail in a wide variety of sounds. Plugged in to an Acoustic Image Clarus + through a Raezer's Edge Stealth 10, I scooped out the mids, put the treble and bass around 12 o'clock and was amazed at the clarity, warmth, and note seperation.
We've applied our revolutionary Halfling technology to the world of the Steel String! With our characteristic sustain and energy storage in the top as well as enhanced dimensional acoustics this is the Steel String guitar for the discriminating player!
Playing the guitar, I was particularly impressed by the way that notes appeared to continue their dynamic development even after my fingers had left the string. Combined with the rich bass, great clarity, and expansive volume, the guitar offered a sonic experience quite unlike any other instrument I've had the pleasure to make music with.ý -Teja Gerken, Acoustic Guitar Magazine
