Nylon String Features

All of my nylon string guitars are given the utmost attention to wood selection and contruction details. I use only my finest top woods and special care is taken durring all phases of construction to insure a guitar which is sensitive to the touch and delivers a strong, expressive tone.

I currently use either a traditional Torres/Hauser bracing pattern or an all wood lattice pattern, depending on the desired tonal outcome.


Standard Nylon string guitars include the following:

- Western red cedar, Engelmann spruce or European spruce top
- Indian rosewood back and sides
- Mahogany neck
- Wood bindings and purflings
- Adjustable, two way , stainless steel, truss rod
- Bone nut and saddle
- Sloane tuners with ebony knobs and black rollers
- Hoffee carbon fiber flight case
- 3 day air shipping within the continental U.S.
