Cedar Model

The cedar & rosewood classical guitar model is a powerful instrument with a piano type bass response and a crisp treble voicing.  The design is inspired by instruments made by Ignacio Fleta in the 1960's and 70's with a very similar body shape, depth and material selection.  The cedar model also features a soundboard bracing pattern developed by Fleta which uses a 9 fan bracing pattern (as opposed to the more common 7 fan) and double braces for the upper portion of the design (visible in the photo gallery below), the effect of this bracing creates a controlled response to the guitars overtone production and volume.

The cedar & rosewood model is made from aged materials including Western red cedar soundboard, back & sides are aged Indian rosewood with an ebony fingerboard, Brazilian or Madagascar rosewood bridge with a very thin French polish finish with fine quality tuners.
