The construction of the rosette is exclusive of my guitars and I make it following a medieval technique deeply rooted in Granada with a long tradition which is followed by just a few local studios that carry on with this labourious activity, taracea. Varieties and combinations of colours and shapes are provided. Varnish is handcrafted following the French polish smooth technique in shellac. This technique is worldwide recognized and it is apllied in all types of high quaity musical instruments constructions, in order to achieve the best sound quaity as possible, allowing that all subsystems of the instrument vibrate in a optimal way.
Mechanical and sound characteristics:
Granadian school of guitar constructions introduce to its instruments very significative and impressive properties which have a very high worldwide recognition. This guitar is characterized of its light weight and restrained dimensions inside Spanish classic guitar standards, between 1.5 and 1.6 kg of weigth, its touch is soft without going to the extreme and it leaves a really good sensation of comfort to the guitarist. Its sound is very well balanced with not only a good sound adjust but also a fantastic support and strength, which provide us with a sweet and velvety sound, clear, sensitive to touch high notes and solid and powerful low notes. It has a very nice notes support and although its morphology and purpose is not power and strength, it is true that its external projection is highly noticeably. It is a guitar thought to be very pleasant to the performer and it is thought to leave good sensations as you play it.
