Nice guitar. Love his cedar guitars; never had the chance to try the spruce. Best of luck with the sale.

Thanks :)
In fact, this is my second Delarue, my first one was a cedar one (also really good). I have decided to change for this one, because in my opinion, it one had a lot of projection, and at the same time a warmer sound, with more contrasts. Never tried another spruce from Delarue, but I definitely prefer this one to the 8-10 cedars that I have tried (some of my friends are obsessed by Delarue (cedar version ;) ). This one is, at the beginning, a bit harder to control, but when you reach to understand this guitar, you really can make beautiful things with it.
I guess that then, it is a matter of taste...

Hi,
could you compare this one with other guitars by French luthiers, e.g. Field, Friederich or Rohe?
Thx
Peter

Hi.
I have never tried any Field, nor Rohe, only heard it from outside (but in live) :)
I absolutely prefer this one to the 2 field I have heard, and I think, even if it is different, that it is in the same "line" as Rohe. I don't have enough experience to say if Rohe is better or not.
My previous guitar was a cedar Delarue, and it was quite difficult to compare to a cedar Friedrich (1978-1980 I think): The two guitars were quite equals, each one with his own advantages.
But then, I've bought this spruce one, that I prefer in many points, compared to my previous one (sorry Carlos :lol: ): more balanced, a better tone, more presence, even if the trebles were not as "explosive" (I prefer but I know that everyone doesn't agree on this).
So yes, Delarue is ont of the greatest "traditionnels" luthiers in France.

Hello Peter,

I can give you some information between all these guitars. I have compared Friederich from the 80's and some cedar Delarue. the Delarue is louder and maybe warmer, but the Friederich has its un beatable specific color. I will say that Delarue is closer to a Friederich anyway than a Field. I have tried the 'old' field from the 80's and the new one are very different to me - incredibly good. But they are spruce and very different from the cedar Delarue or Friederich. In that case the Delarue is a spruce top.. I never tried any spruce top delarue but that should be clearly a great guitar. As far from the Rohe, to me who lives in Paris France, I have never met any player who owns a Rohé (I kown a lot of french player), I have never tried one of those. It is to me a mistery, it seems that the Rohe guitars are more famous outside France.

Delarue is definitly a great and .. affordable french luthier. Way above the other french luthier in the same price range.

I owned a spruce Delarue for a while and would definitely agree with this statement, mine was much older and quite lovely, I'd imagine this guitar for sale would be even better. The Field I played was a good deal louder than my spruce Delarue, but almost twice as expensive.

Good luck with your sale!

Thank you Andre, much appreciated. I own a Rohe but I am lacking the comparison to the others...

Thanks !

I sold my Delarue cedar some months ago. Now I regret it. It was the best cedar I ever played. Never seen a spruce from Delarue. Must be gorgeous as well.

Thanks everyone.
May I remind you that if you want to experience the sound (ok, with a low-medium quality, but correct anyway), I have put a link to a soundcloud page where I play this very instrument.
I past it here:

This is the best way to tell you how it sounds :)

Thanks Djibzs ! Sound is extremely subjective as we all know. Judging the sound from such a sound sample is so much dependent on the recording equipment and setting, very often it does not justice to the real guitar sound. That´s at least my experience. But as I said before, any discussion on sound is difficult ....Nice playing though !

Hi there, just to say I am the happy buyer of djibzs previous guitar, a Delarue cedar - definitely a great guitar! He sold it to me so that he could buy this one - so this one must definitely be great! If I had the budget I would buy it as well ... but I would certainly never sell mine ... I am not crazy ... congrats in advance for the future owner of this beauty! Cheers,
Carlos.

I'm the happy owner of a cedar Delarue. This one looks intriguing. Could you please contact me if it's still for sale? I just re activated my forum membership, and apparently can't send private messages.

Thanks,

Gary

It appears that all of those people fortunate enough to own a Delarue Cedar cannot speak highly enough about them. I would like to add my voice to the choir. I would dearly love to add this guitar to my collection but I would also dearly like to remain on speaking terms with my wife. This would be a brilliant addition to anyones collection. Good luck with the sale.
