The Ecstatic Guitar Theorem

1.Chordal Response: fast, lively, response, versatile chordal weight, dynamic, crisp response and definition, excellent harmonic articulation   4.9
𝑑1 = 4.9   ( 5-n) +1 =1.9 )
2.Individual note decay as well as blended in a chord:  15 secs +, rich sustain, with focused upper and lower partials
approx                                    5.0
𝑑2 = 5.0 ( 5-n) +1 =2.0 )
3. Basic volume and presence: loud, soft, aggressive, powerful, interactive volume, excellent dynamics, crisp and dark, orchestral presence     4.85
𝑑3 = ( 4.85-n) +1 =1.85 )
4. Individual note separation and focus: excellent note separation, wet and dry notes possible, professional articulation and focus     4.9
𝑑4 =( 4.9-n) +1 =1.9 )

5.Systematic sustain:  trembling sustain, rich defined overtone series, interactive sustain, saucy, big waves, surf the sustain waves and blend a melody with precision over the clear, defined, lingering decay   4.95
𝑑5 =4.9 ( 5-n) +1 =1.95 )
6. Response compliance: fast, energetic, interactive response, a refined and defined response in slow open dark/ airy swells    4.9
𝑑6 =( 4.95 -n) +1 =1.95 )
7. Balance and quality of tone: balanced spectrum with a crisp defined acoustic response loaded in fundamental and audible harmonic complexities, a motivating voice, vibrant, malleable tone, interactive, Chiming harmonics, bellowing harmonics, amazing recording guitar,              4.9
𝑑7 =( 4.9-n) +1 =1.9 )
8. Even strength and balance of each string: strings are balanced and pronounced with a crisp focus, thick and heavy mids and trebles, bass / mid fundamental swells, excellent D and G upper and lower partials, rich highs,    4.9
𝑑8 =( 4.9-n) +1 =1.9 )
9. Tone projection: orchestral tone production, full bodied sound, full even tone breaths, concert hall amplification, performing tool      4.85
𝑑9 =4.8 ( 5-n) +1 =1.85)
10. A large dynamic range: an arsenal of dynamics ranging from crisp raspy highs and lows to open sweet round notes, dark and light, excellent textures and colours,    4.95
𝑑10 =4.95( 5-n) +1 = 1.95 )

11. Tonal bloom:  even consistent bloom cycles rich in sustain and fundamental,      4.9
𝑑11 =4.9( 5-n) +1 =1.9 )

 

 

Quality Of Tone

A fast, lively, response, versatile chordal weight, dynamic, crisp response and definition, excellent harmonic articulation, an arsenal of dynamics ranging from crisp raspy highs and lows to open sweet round notes, dark and light, excellent textures and colours, orchestral tone production, full bodied sound, full even tone breaths, concert hall amplification, performing tool, balanced spectrum with a crisp defined acoustic response loaded in fundamental and audible harmonic complexities, a motivating voice, vibrant, malleable tone, interactive, Chiming harmonics, bellowing harmonics, amazing recording guitar, rich sustain, with focused upper and lower partials. 

Power

∑𝑑 = (𝑑1+𝑑2+𝑑3+𝑑4+𝑑5+𝑑6+𝑑7+𝑑8+𝑑9+𝑑10+𝑑11)= 21.00
𝐏= ∑ 𝐅 ∕ T ∑𝐅=∑𝑑⧹𝐀
P =21.00 / T
𝐏= 21.00/ 22 ≅ 9.5 /10 ≅ 95%

Conception

In 2014 Mario Beauregard delivered the first OM guitar that would become known as Goldaline. The soundboard featured on this guitar was originally sourced alongside Ervin Somogyi when Mario began as Ervin’s first apprentice. The tone of Goldaline was shocking and beautiful. After experiencing what I believed to be the new gold standard in tone I knew I needed to get my hands on another. Goldaline II was crafted for the 2015 Berlin show in Germany where the new owner proudly picked up his guitar. This Goldaline 2.2 guitar is an exact sister to that guitar with a larger nut width and string spacing specified by the buyer. It arrived at Symphontree Music in the constellation of Pisces in 2017. It is my extreme pleasure to record, play and review this guitar.

For me Goldaline is and always will be a very romantic guitar capable of keeping me up at  nights and urging me to explore it as much as play it.  It is as much a guitar as it is a journey or voyage through the joy of a well made object.

 

Honesty

This guitar is a Mario Beauregard OM conceived to be apart of the Goldaline series of guitars exclusively available at Symphontree Music. Goldy is a Beauregard original design. This guitar features an original Beauregard, headstock, bridge, bracing, box geometry, neck carve and voice. Mario pays homage to his good friend Michi Matsuda with a Matsuda inspired rosette completely of Mario’s own design. The bevels on this guitar are a borrowed design executed with in Beauregard’s form.

Gender

Due to the refined curves, tighter waist and the romantic intimacy that ensues when I play Goldaline 2.2 , I would declare this as a more feminine guitar.
