Jorge De Zofia (JDZ) Repair

Finished repair on cracked back on a 2014 August Jorge De Zofia (JDZ) guitar should be good to go, thanks to John Stein and Bill at ” It’s A Set UP”. This guitar is had its fair share of bumps traveling from Florida both times they were a few mishaps with the shipping USPS and packaging of the guitar. This may have caused the crack to start both Luthiers that looked at the guitar said that it was not due to humidity (I keep my home at 45% and 68-72 in the case I use a Planet Waves Humi Pack in a BAM Case) or problems in the case we’re playing. The guitar is young one a few months old. I don’t play hard on my guitars. I do tap in the style of Ottmar Liebert and a few other flamenco techniques but none of these should harm or start a crack in the back of the guitar. For the repair the wood was pushed and glue was put inside the crack and then leveled and sent to dry.

K&K Trinity and Trinity Pre Amp Set up on Zofia Cedar Blanca to Bose L1S

Just reset the gain and eq settings in my K&K Trinity Preamp. I have the pickup at 80% gain 85% treble flat mid cut 8:00 and bass flat mic at 50% gain treble flat, mid cut 9:00, bass 10:00. Into my Bose L1S with Tone Match preset 80Hz Highpass all eq on Bose is flat and no Q. No compression and just 35 hall reverb. I wish some one would make a two channel guitar preamp that has two 5 band eq with sweepable mids on both a Highpass filter, phantom power on 1 mic Chanel, phase, effects loop, aux in 1/8 for iPod (battery or 48v) phantom power and small engulf to clip on to a guitar strap. Headway EB2 came so close but only really one channel can be eq. I know you can assign it to both but I like to eq the bass on pickups differently than the mic or sensor in guitar. I’m very happy with my Zofia Cedar Blanca and working with Jorge was an absolute pleasure, if your in the area next Sunday I will playing this guitar at Unionville Winery in Ringos NJ as they release Foxy Lady.

Zofia 2014 Cedar Blanca

Best guitar I’ve had the privilege to own or play, I like it more than my two DeVoe’s much more responsive, tight tone but not constricted I can play sad melancholy to roaring expression with no bass muddies or treble harshness. The mids are fantastic.
