Sweet build and (most importantly) gorgeous sound!

I have a custom Irvin made in 2020 with Alpine spruce over granadillo. I had never experienced granadillo (I've been a rosewood fan all my life) but I was surprised at the precise bass response.

I can hear it in the video clips as well. Granadillo is an intriguing wood!

I really hope to see some of his guitars represented in USA some day soon. All of the clips on your channel are top-notch. Excellent sound and quality.

Thank you~ I also think Granadillo is a beautiful tonewood, and Mark figured out how to voice the wood nicely~

I guess it will happen soon~ He had dealt with the move, the new workshop, and more~
Again, thank you for your kind word.
