I seem to recall there might be some videos with Jorge Caballero playing these guitars. That may not help much but it may give an indication of the sound.Laudiesdad69 wrote: ↑Sat Jan 13, 2018 10:23 pmI was looking at the Strings by Mail site. SBM has instruments for sale, and I was wondering if anyone has experience with Augustine guitars. In particular I am looking at the Prima SP-S. It solid rosewood b/s, spruce top. 650mm scale with 52mm nut. Finger board looks like ebony in the picture, but could just be dark rosewood. Comes with a case. New price is $699.00. Any info on this guitar is appreciated. I wonder where its made.
I will give SBM a call.Lovemyguitar wrote: ↑Wed Jan 17, 2018 10:46 pmThese guitars are made in China (PRC). The fingerboard looks very brown on my screen, like rosewood (you'd think if it were ebony, they'd say so!). If you've not seen it, the Augustine website has a lot more pictures of the guitars, but no further description than what is on the SBM site.
You could just email or phone SBM and ask them (or email Augustine)!
