A very lightweight guitar with cypress back and sides and European spruce top. Very typical light clear with great projection Flamenco sound.
Beautiful, elegant and thoroughly classic, this is a dream for the passionate and a virtual necessity for the discerning musician. A fine classical guitar is like a fine art object, it contains well conceived design features carried out with precision. Nothing of importance is omitted and nothing unnecessary is included.
As in all Maingard guitars, scrupulous attention is given to the selection of master grade, seasoned, quartersawn aged wood and much time is dedicated to tuning the tops, backs and braces to create an instrument rich in harmonics with projection and volume balanced with clear, crisp trebles. Gold plated schaller and handmade machine heads are used throughout. Maingard classical guitars are currently used by the top South African concert and professional performers.
All guitars are available in Brazilian Rosewood, African Blackwood, Cocobolo, Pink Ivory & other. Please email me to discuss the tonal implications of the different woods for backs & sides as well as availability.
All tops are preferably over 20 years old hand selected over many years Alpine or European spruce.
