Sound


This is a new instrument - completed only in the very recent past. The sound is excellent as is, but I am sure will settle in nicely for a mahogany, 20 hole flat head Hatfield sound. The sound is also very full both up and down the neck.

Setup


Set up was excellent! It is very easy to play for both bluegrass and clawhammer. The action is set for a .656 bridge so I can lower if I want to use a 5/8 and raise if I want to use 11/16 bridges.

Appearance


Fit, finish, and detail is everything one would expect coming from Arthur. What else can one say? This is a beautiful instrument.

Reliability


With a Hatfiled, one gets only the top drawer of components. I expect no issues there and I would not hesitate to use this as a main "gig axe."

Customer Service


Of course, Arthur and Bev both care more about the product and the customer than any business that I think I have ever dealt with...I am sure that if there is an issue, Arthur will go the longest mile to make sure it is resolved.

Components


Standout components? Everything...great mahogany neck wood and beautiful resonator, top drawer components including hardware, bridge, tuners - no weak or cheap parts to upgrade. Finish and fit are flawless.
