I am looking to upgrade my rather modest Raimundo guitar, and have recently come across a second hand Thomas Dauge guitar in a local, specialist music shop. Here is a link to the luthier: http://www.thomasdauge.com/
; I believe Thomas is a member of the Delcamp forum. The guitar I am looking at is No. 21 made in 2005, and looks more or less the same as shown on the 'Classic Guitar' page of the website. The soundboard is fine grained spruce, and the back and side are rosewood (but no information on the variety). Looking at the outside, the quality of construction looks very good. I have played it once briefly in the shop. It sounded fine, but I was 'competing' with a couple of people testing acoustic guitars, so the background was a little noisy. I will check it out further, but I am looking at other options as well.
My question is, does anyone have experience in playing or listening to classical guitars made by Thomas Dauge ? What are your impressions on the sound. I was especially interested in getting a guitar that has better sustain in the trebles compared to my Raimundo. Also, I would be interested in any links to YouTube or sound clips of a Thomas Dauge guitar being played (I haven't found any yet after briefly searching).
Thank you for your assistance. Cheers... Richard
