SOUND

This lightly built classical guitar is designed to accommodate both traditional classical style playing and modern jazz styles. Neck dimensions vary according to your preference. Only finest quality "crème de la crème" aged woods are used. Each guitar top is "tuned" to attain the richest possible response. Body size is slightly larger in the lower bout but proportionally thinner in depth, resulting in a balanced rich tonal palette, achieved by adapting traditional European bracing patterns.
