Crafter TE9 iGuitar Review

Brand new for 2013 from the NAMM show in California, the Crafter TE9 MP has been shipped to the UK and straight to iGuitar for review. It’s so new that we haven’t received a full shipment yet but they are due at the end of summer. Something for your Christmas list! The Crafter TE9 is a grand auditorium guitar with a solid Engelmann spruce top and maple back and sides. Delightfully light in tone and weight but with a punchy sound. Features the new LR-T NX PreAmp with L.R. Baggs Pickup and inbuilt LCD Tuner for tuning on the go. Rick Graham gives his verdict on iGuitar with a stunning 4.5/5 stars. We can’t wait to see more of them on UK shores! Click here for review.
“A great sounding guitar with a good quality onboard pre-amp and low price point. Well made and looks fantastic to boot. Even if you have budgeted for a more expensive instrument, I’d suggest you make a point of checking out the TE9 – you might be in for a very pleasant surprise!” – Rick Graham

Crafter on Eurovision 2013

Hands up if you saw the Crafter guitar on Eurovision last weekend? The DLXE 3000/SK was played by a guitarist with ByeAlex from Hungary who came 10th in the table with their song ‘Kedvesem’.

If the subtitles are anything to go by then this is a song about a girlfriend being brought up by wolves who splashes in the sea, dances in the clouds and gets messy hair in the wind.

A bit tame by Eurovision standards surely? Watch the footage from ByeAlex on Eurovision 2013 below.
