Its Not Always A Happy Ending
One of my favorite adverts was one by Honda which said at Honda they don't use the word "OK" and instead they use the phrase "What If". I LOVED that advert and found it so inspiring. This is the premise of every guitar setup we undertake. If that means rejecting guitars and starting again - that is exactly what we do.
No Time To Watch the Videos? Here Is the Summary...
If you have bought a guitar before you will know all too well that not every guitar feels or plays the same. You may also know that due to the nature of the major component of the guitar (wood) that they can feel great one moment and awful the next (say for example after traveling half way around the globe on a boat - from some factory in the far east to the UK!)
Richards Guitars offers a unique service offering the more discerning/knowledgeable buyer a host of "players benefits" which will ensure that ANY guitar purchased will give you years of enjoyment - regardless of the price paid. I can demonstrate that a guitar purchased from Richards Guitars will...

To summarise, a guitar supplied by Richards Guitars will not just feel like a new guitar, it will feel like YOUR guitar.

The Cort AF30 and AF60 models provide 30 watts and 60 watts, respectively, of clean solid state power as well as onboard DSP for lush chorus, delay and chorus-delay effects. The AF Series amps also feature a 4-band graphic EQ for further tone-shaping as well as a notch filter to eliminate feedback – a feature normally found in amps that cost much more. Ideal for small venues, rehearsals and practice applications, the mobile but powerful AF30 will extend the range of your acoustic-electric guitar with performance, features, value and musicality.
60W POWER OUTPUT
The 60w of the AF60 will be able to handle medium size venues with plenty of power and headroom.
TWO 8” WOOFER & ONE TWEETER
The AF60’s combination of two 8” woofers with a single tweeter provides a balanced sound for firm punchy lows with clear and defined highs.
4-BAND GRAPHIC EQUALIZER
The 4-band equalizer features carefully selected frequency bands (70, 400, 800, 10K) that are ideal to bring the natural character of your acoustic guitar while providing a wide range of sounds and tonal character.
ONBOARD DSP (FX)
The onboard Digital Signal Processor chip provides chorus, delay and chorus + delay effects to add spatial dimension to your acoustic-electric sounds. The type of effect and the level of each effect can easily be controlled with the rotary knobs. The effect can also be switched on and off with the push switch.
Feedback can be a problem with acoustic instruments. With the notch control, you can eliminate the unwanted feedback by engaging the notch switch and using the knob to select the frequency causing the feedback.
MIC / AUX-IN / PHONES / PREAMP-OUT
The AF60 provides superb flexibility and versatility with in-out jacks to extend the range of the amplifier and your instrument. With pro-level XLR input, auxiliary in for CD players or MP3 players, headphone out and preamp out to connect to mixing consoles and PA systems, the AF60 can cover virtually any application – from practice sessions to large venue concerts.
The AF30’s tilt-back cabinet design has two angles for the most optimum sound projection depending on the playing situation. The straight angle is typically used for projecting to an audience while tilt-back is for monitoring the performer’s sound.
