The Lyra model has evolved with the addition of a bound top and semi solid core. I received mine yesterday and it’s like nothing I’ve ever played. As Gil posted above, he’s also added a full solid model.
I’ll comment more about this guitar in the coming weeks but I can assure you, it’s a tonal masterpiece. The build, as you know from Gil’s thread’s, is legendary.
After the first 1/2 hour playing this instrument I found myself turning everything off except the compressor (including any reverb). While the Lyra will stun you through a variety of pedals, this girl likes an amp and a cable best. She’s perfect without all the makeup but will knock your socks off when she doll’s it up. The tonal palette is massive, and that’s not an exaggeration. I’ve picked up a few 335’s over the years and you’ll search far and wide to find a semi that sounds like this (and the clean tone is the hallmark; it will almost make you tear up and I’m not kidding).
Enough... here she is.
Thomas, you are indeed blessed to have that wonderful instrument in-hand! Hopefully, you'll get some time to post more about your sound discoveries, including recordings if you have the time and inclination. These are very inspiring guitars.
The “build” gets it’s well deserved respect but the real accomplishment with the Lyra is what you can do with it. I’ll never do it justice but this sweetheart is special. I’ve got one of Gil’s bursts from 2013 and it’s an amazing replica but this is in a class of it’s own.
The blues tone through this 2204 is inspiring.
