C H A R A C T E R I S T I C S

The proposed classical guitar model is a personal project.

Research is focused on obtaining a responsive, powerfull and balanced guitar without giving up to the typical colors of traditional guitar.

The result is an instrument that meets the requirements of the big concert halls while at the same time keeps a warm and rich timber typical of historical traditional guitars.

Generally, the most used woods in my guitars are italian Val di Fiemme spruce or canadian cedar for soundboards, indian rosewood for back and sides, ebony for fingerboard, mahogany or spanish cedar for neck, indian rosewood for bridge.

S O U N D B O A R D  D E S I G N 

I submit soundboards to specific tests to determine the mechanical characteristics for every wood piece, discarding pieces that don't meet the quality requirements.

For the realization of my guitars I use a composite soundboard, consisting of two soundboards interspersed by an inside nomex layer. The result is a soundboard that is approximately 30% lighter than an only wood plate.

For the inner layer I use cedar, for his low density; for the outer layer the customer can choose between spruce or cedar.

The realization of an only wood soundboard is possible on request.
