Fylde Alchemist Reviews
This is a fantastic guitar. I own 2 Fylde Goodfellows, using one for Trad folk and the other for Bottleneck in G and D. I needed a solo rock and roll guitar and the Alchemist is IT. There is so much going on when played, using EXP D'addario strings, that when strumming it sounds as full as a 12 string, yet on the same song lead work soars out with a mighty punch. I have my own finger style of playing, don't use a plectrum, and the Alchemist suits this perfectly.
It is light, well balanced and comfortable to play. The mixture of woods on the neck and stock, Ash, Walnut and mahogany, make the guitar a pleasure to look at and admire, even when it is silent.
The Headway pickup gives a loud clear and very balanced amplified sound, suiting the guitar perfectly.
When gigging with this I take the blues Goodfellow for bottleneck playing, and use the Alchemist for rock and roll and slower more finger style songs. Played like this there is much going on, a rich mix of harmonics that enhance any song or any playing.
The machines are a joy to use, and really there is nothing in this guitar that I would change. The only thing is that the action is too high for bottleneck!! But then it is ideal for every other sort of style I can play.
