Fab Acoustic Letter podcasts

These videos are a real treat for guitar fans interested in both technical reviews and real world insight from industry leaders and experts. The vibe is energetic and often amusing making them a joy to watch. Keep up the great work Tony & the Acoustic Letter team. Cheers!

Great unbiased guitar reviews

Finally, an iTunes podcast version of the already renowned guitar reviews from Tony, The Acoustic Letter and the crew at Music Villa in Bozeman, MT.
What I like best is that the reviews cover a range of instruments at prices to suit all pockets, but the $100 000 guitar review is my favourite. It has been shared with my friends from the UK to the USA and Kenya to Australia.

Excellent reviews of some of the best acoustic guitars in the world.

These videos are extremely well produced and give a real in sight into the differences between both high end, and more modestly priced guitars.
