Reynolds Concert Grand Double Top
Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee (Ode to Joy)
by Filippo Morelli

Just beginning to learn the first segment of an arrangement by Mark Anthony Cruz. One of my favorite Beethoven pieces. This is played on a Reynolds Concert Grand classical guitar. Double top Chocolate Cedar and phenomenal moonscape Cocobolo. If only I could play as well as this guitar can make music.

1936 Gibson L-30 Archtop Restoration
“John’s Hurt”
Written and played by Filippo Morelli

This 1936 Gibson L-30, in the original owner family, came in for a restoration. Its top separating in pieces, the back broken in two, flat with all the braces no longer supporting the back.

After the restoration, it had a wonderfully bluesy sound that only a 75 year old archtop would have. I wrote “John’s Hurt” (based on Mississippi John Hurt influence) to demonstrate this guitar’s sound.
