We’re thrilled to bits that iGuitar have started to review Crafter guitars for us. For the first outing in their quiet room studio for rigorous testing, they took on the HiLITE TE CD/VTG and they really liked it! No wonder they’re so popular! You can view the online review here but there’s also an interactive link to the magazine here.

Here’s what Tim Slater had to say about the HiLITE.
“The Crafter HiLite TE CD-VTG feels like the type of electro acoustic that you can safely take home to meet your mother! The vintage style finish makes a refreshing change from the popular pale and glossy spruce and the compact dimensions are counterbalanced by a pleasantly big and punchy sound. You can imagine this guitar suiting a Jazz or Country soloist just as adeptly as it effortlessly sits alongside a singer songwriter; the terrific neck, good tone and workable amplified tones add up to a whole lot of fun. Just as importantly this guitar won’t break the bank, either. In fact it’s really very good value for money.”
