Read below what owners of our guitars are saying about their instruments.

 Donald Jones, Baschurch, Shropshire - Model 74S Grand Auditorium - Purchased December 2023

It is said that the aesthetics of a guitar do not affect the tone in any way, but when superlative craftsmanship and high quality woods are combined to produce an exquisite instrument such as this, then the statement should be reflected upon.

Luthier Niu Liuha may be, as yet, relatively unknown but I can attest that he is already a master of his craft. The model 74S Grand Auditorium classical guitar is both elegant and beautiful, giving joy to the eye even before playing a note. The finish and attention to detail is second to none and the end result is fabulous.

The neck profile immediately feels supremely comfortable and the added arm rest allows for greater ease and comfort to the overall playing experience.

The body with its latticed braced AAA grade Canadian Spruce top combined with a braceless arched ‘double back’ and sides in Indian rosewood makes every note sing and sing in abundance! The trebles have an immense sweet quality to them and the bass is tight and defined, Niu Liuha has managed to balance them perfectly whereby the trebles and bass compliment each other in every position.

The bass notes when played give an immediate response with clarity and no 'dullness' to the sound, which create a perfect harmony with the treble strings that are eloquent and defined. In every position the clarity of tone lends itself to any piece being played whether a sombre Spanish piece or a modern piece that calls for a different playing approach. Both trebles and bass are rich in tonal quality and depth, with soft playing clarity and grand volume when required, all produced with the lightest of touches at any tempo.

The sound reference port thoughtfully fitted on the shoulder allows the player to hear immediately what the instrument is producing in minute detail and so allows for an enhanced performance.

Some guitars are for playing and then passing on but I feel that this one is most definitely a 'keeper'.
