Create a Consistent Tone

One of the qualities that Bob Taylor admires in Andy's guitar-making approach is his ability to create a consistent of tone within the voice of the guitar.

"The highest notes that you can play on the 12th fret, on the high strings, are as loud and meaty as the lowest notes," Bob explains.

"It sounds like one guitar from one end to another. That can be hard to achieve, because often it can sound like one guitar for the first five frets, another guitar for the next four frets, and yet another guitar for the next four frets. But Andy's guitars sound like the same musical instrument, like a piano."
