Visit to Miles Kent

Having spent many many hours browsing the Kent guitars site in the past I decided to take the opportunity to visit Miles Kent at his place in Sevenoaks as I was going to be in the area looking for guitar wood.

Miles was most welcoming and he was kind enough to spare an hour or so looking at and playing some of the instruments I have made and provided me with great encouragement to persevere as well some extremely helpful and practical advice on the guitar characteristics that were often important.

I came away with greater insight as to the whys and hows of the differences in my instruments, encouraged by how wonderful Miles made them sound and inspired to try a more popular design than the Ramirez 1a on my next guitar and in a more conventional 650mm scale length.
