Thank you for your feedback on my Guitar building art and all the support from my family which has a great deal on increasing popularity of my Classical Guitars.
I am building my Arch top Guitars and Parlor Steel String Guitars on limited basis.
Making steel string guitars and carving tops, backs for the Arch top instruments, I developed a good skills with consistency to build responsive Classical Guitars for the most discriminating players.
All my Classical Guitars are build in a traditional way with Spanish heel, all high grade wood to master grade wood, Spruce or Cedar for the soundboard.
The finish is your choice of French Polish or Lacquer. If you wish to have Lacquered backs sides, neck and French Polish Top, it’s also an option.
The current base price of my Classical Guitars is $ 6000
For my Classical Guitars I use only the best quality of wood. It is definitely serious guitars with plenty of volume, sustain and quick projection. They are very light, thin and responsive. The soundboard thickness is from 1.9 depending on the stiffness and resonations of the Spruce or Cedar wood.
Whether you play simple harmonics or heavy trebles/basses in any register, you will get good support from the instrument in any size of a Concert Hall. More Sustain or Volume can be achieved during construction by proper thinning of the top, back and controlling the amount of energy going to the neck. If you like you’re your guitar to be loud or bright with fast projection, more sustain or more volume it can be done.
I believe, that the only prove of my descriptions is playing my guitars to feel the effort and time I put in to my guitar building art.
