" It is without doubt one of the very finest instruments I've ever seen. The neck feels great, fingerboard width perfect. Design is restrained beauty itself......what can I say, except it sounds incredible too. I'm not great at the flowery descriptions of how an instrument sounds but there is a sustain, depth and clarity to this guitar which is just out of this world.
I'm so happy! "

" Both of my Melville's are incredible! I've played a lot of instruments from all over the world and your guitars are definitely world class. "

Above all, you know an instrument is special when you play a single note and all you want to do is sit and listen to it ring out into the world, and as me and my sound engineer discovered, you'll be waiting a while for it to finish ringing out. What a privilege it is to play such a special instrument. I will always be very grateful.

I am astounded by the level of craftsmanship you bring to the making of guitars and marvel at your ability to tirelessly tend to every detail. My new '000' is a magnificent instrument which consists of the perfect playability, comfort, aesthetic and richness of tone- it is simply a joy to play. I am ecstatic at the fact that I have finally found an instrument that will enable me to get on with the business of making music. Many thanks

Chris Melville's guitars have a full, warm, singing tone and fantastic colour response. They are extremely well balanced with an even response throughout all registers. Harmonics and sustain are exceptional and the guitars record beautifully. They are very comfortable to play and the finish is perfect. Chris' customer service is excellent and his attention to detail is second to none. "
