The sound of the guitar is truly fantastic (acoustic and amplified)! The basses are powerful and very clear and the trebles are really clear and also powerful. The guitar is very well balanced and very easy to play. The tone range is impressive and the volume and sustain are very good. Aesthetically the guitar is superb!

Recently I got to play all but one of the arch tops in the ‘Blue Collection’ of Scott Chinery, and the quality was surprisingly high. Of those that I played, the out and out best was the one made by Steve Grimes in Hawaii. The two guitars he made for me are wonderful instruments.

Steve, thanks so much for the guitar! Its the f_ _ _ing Steinway Grande of arch top guitars!

Larry Fineman

Thanks! You’ve created my dream guitar! The ‘OM’ size Beamer is way better than my expectations. The design, materials, execution, finish, set up….all score a 10+!

Steve, the guitar arrived safe and sound. It is absolutely stunning! Everything about it is more than I could have hoped for. The sound, look and feel of this guitar are great, but it is particularly the sound that is so enticing! It resonates in a way unlike any other instrument I own.

What a great guitar! It has that incredible richness that makes it wonderful for recording. The harmonics are great, and even the double octave false harmonics are there. I don’t know if you could make it any better.

For me, this guitar was like finding the holy grail of tone, combined with master workmanship, the best I’ve ever heard and seen. Having a couple of your guitars I expected nothing short of amazing, but it´s always nice when you exceed customers expectations. Fantastic guitar-thanks!!
