7 String Nylon Guitar

This 7 string nylon/classical guitar has a lattice braced spruce soundboard, cocobolo back and sides and a Honduran mahogany neck with adjustable truss rod.  It holds Rubner ball bearing tuning machines and a Barbera piezoelectric bridge pickup.

The 650 mm scale is on an ebony fretboard with a 16″ radius.

The offset sound hole results in a greater active surface area for the soundboard because the lower tone bar can be positioned closer to the neck. This augments the lower frequencies, giving support to the additional bass string.

The Brazilian rosewood bridge has a 12 hole tie block. This feature increases the downward pressure on the saddle compared to a 6 hole tie block and this results in a more powerful voice.

This guitar was built for jazz guitarist Steve Herberman.

 

   

Concert Classical Guitar

This guitar has a fan braced redwood soundboard, matched with Grenadillo back and sides. It has a powerful voice with impressive projection, perfectly balanced across all strings and in all fret positions. The redwood soundboard combines the clarity of spruce with the warmth of red cedar, resulting in a tone color in between these two more traditional top woods.

The 12 hole bridge is made of Brazilian rosewood and has a bone saddle.

The guitar has a 650 mm scale. The neck is 52 mm wide at the bone nut.

The tuning machines are by Rubner and the rollers have ball bearing ends, resulting in effortless, friction free movement.

The soundhole ring and tie block overlay are made of Amboyna.  Bindings are birdseye maple. The 5 piece neck is made from mahogany, curly maple and ebonized holly.
