My classic guitars are rooted in traditional Spanish aesthetics, with a sound crafted to satisfy the modern concert guitarist. I strive for a guitar that has the power, clarity, openness, and separation to fill a concert hall, but that also has a beautiful voice that will make you not want to put it down. These guitars are loud and penetrating without being boomy and have great sustain and overtones.
Includes Gotoh Premium tuners, Indian rosewood back and sides, select spruce or cedar top, rosewood or maple bindings, handmade rosette, 100% French polish finish.
Tuner upgrades also available on all models.

These are my traditional Flamenco instruments, built with spruce or cedar tops. They are crisp, bright and very percussive. I try to retain all the growl and bite of a traditional blanca, along with a lot of volume and a range of dynamics and tone. These guitars are excellent for dance accompaniment. Spanish cypress is my back and side wood of choice and I will use one of my best spruce or cedar tops.

My 2A blanca is a fantastic player's guitar on a budget. I can save a lot of time with a premade rosette (of your choice), and unfancy purflings and tie block inlay. These guitars feature woods that are all graded as "Premium" by the supplier, but I don't use my very favorite tops or back and side sets. The guitar still recieves my full attention to fine-tuning and a French polish finish. Wooden pegs or machine tuners can be used.

A soloist's instrument. My rosewood Flamenco guitars have all the richness, power, complexity and sustain required for a professional concert performance or studio recording. However, the character of the guitar is still very Flamenco, with a deep, earthy bass and punchy midrange.

Options that are available at an upcharge include cutaway, electronics and tuner upgrades. Generally I can use any tuning machines available for a reasonable price.
A full cutaway is my favorite way to reach the higher frets.
The Fishman Prefix Pro Blend is a fantastic pickup system that allows you to blend the sound between an under-saddle pickup and an internal microphone, allowing for a wide range of very natural and balanced tones.
