I build classical guitars in three different body shapes: a "classical" classical, a neo-classical and a small bodied classical. The neo-classical is for those requiring a modern look and playing a modern repertoire. I frequently incorporate a cutaway in this guitar which, with its higher waist, significantly aids playability and comfort. Many players also request sound reinforcement.
The second style is a “classical” classical guitar which has a more traditional look. However, the soundboard can be braced using either classical or contemporary methods to deliver a traditional Spanish sound or a more powerful modern yet pliable sound.
Finally, there is the small bodied classical, which punches well above its weight and is the result of my efforts to better balance physical size with sound producing potential. It is an instrument well suited to players of any size, but will be particularly appreciated by those of smaller stature.
