My Foley acoustic is the MOST balanced feeling acoustic guitar I've
ever put in my hands. It instantly feels like a vintage Martin and
the attention to detail is apparent instantly. The woods are heart-breakingly
beautiful and the tone is angelic. Crisp, clear, warm and articulate.
Thank you Foley guitars !
Jason Roberts with Asleep at the Wheel
I’ve had the privilege to play a Foley guitar for the past
several months. I took time to get to know this guitar before writing
this testimonial and can honestly say from experience that Ed Foley’s
guitar has a warm, rich tone. While some guitars may have a sweet
spot or two, Foley guitars are one big sweet spot. They sing at
every fret. Ed’s fine craftsmanship elicits compliments every
time I play it. I appreciate the opportunity to have a Foley guitar
among my collection and encourage other players to “pick the
"Legendary" Stefan Grossman
Ed Foley makes unique guitars that combined superb tone, workmanship,
wood and playability. My friend Bill Scarpa has two of Ed's guitars.
One was a 0 sized twelve fret brazilian rosewood that sound like
a cannon but played like butter. The other was a 000/M sized guitar
which had a deep resonance, a jazz styled neck and wonderful projection.
I was so impressed by these guitars and others I played at Ed's
workshop that I asked him to build me one. We decided on a fourteen
fret 000 sized model but with a slotted head and a slightly deeper
body then its Martin counterpart. Ed's internal construction is
unique and the complete top of the guitar resonates giving a clear,
bell-like sound to each string. In some ways the sound reminds me
of a 1930 OM-45 I owned and played for 15 years. The balance of
the instrument is ideal for fingerstyle playing. We choose for the
body some quarter-sawed Brazilian from Ed's wide selection of woods
and a wide grained spruce for the top. The guitar almost plays itself!

singer on the planet - Ed Foley)
"I have played only Foley guitars for many years. There is
no other guitar that can compare to the quality and tone of a Foley.
You can't imagine the playability and sound of a Foley until you
play one. No wonder Ed's website says "PICK THE BEST".
