Sigma GMC-STE+

Total Guitar - - GEAR OF YEAR -

If you’re in the mar­ket for an elec­tro acous­tic un­der £500 Sigma re­ally need to be on your must-try list. And here, they again prove how much time­less de­sign and the ad­vance­ments in Far Eastern man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy can get you for your £300 in­vest­ment.

We said: “The GMC-STE+ of­fers a fairly low ac­tion and a bright char­ac­ter all round. Zingy highs and punchy mids are in keep­ing with what we’d hope from a Martin-style OM, but the sense of bal­ance with a res­o­nant low-end is still a sur­prise for a gui­tar at this price. It feels tac­tile for fin­ger­style folk, re­ward­ing the dy­nam­ics of touch and sug­gest­ing a gui­tar that could go the dis­tance with a be­gin­ner.”
