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 quiality 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.
Cedar soundboard, Indian rosewood body, Pau ferro, or woods with similar resounding characteristics and maple or sycamore for the outside blinding. This model es quite similar when it comes to the classical models standards, although it has a big variation, the soundboard is made of cedar and the braking, set aside for supporting the tensions, suffers a deep transformation. This elements ties give this model a unique and distinct sound. Is a very clear sound, surrounding and very rich in harmonics, very pleasant and noticeable to the ear, with big qualities of power, sustain and a very clear polyphonic projection. The origin of this kind of guitars (lattice, Anglo-Saxon denomination) comes from the need of being used in big lounges, stages with no amplification support or places where you have to share the space with many other instruments of big sound. It was an imperative need for the sound to be listened with clarity for the receiver, in a distinguished way, without losing the nice timbre and with enough power. In this model, I have taken this concept to create a concert guitar in working order, taking elements from the Lattice gutiars, but without giving up the philosophy of a tipical Granadian guitar, light weight, restrained dimensions and a determined bid for the tap ease and a very pleasant use. Therefore, we can classify this model as a hybrid model which makes a profound impression on those who look for these features in guitars.
