The C-9 is an all-solid Spanish style guitar featuring a solid European Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides. Handmade in a small boutique workshop, it's the perfect choice for serious classical guitarists, or any player looking to upgrade to a concert-level instrument at an affordable price.
The C-9 is built with traditional Spanish fan bracing and Spanish heel construction to allow for a responsive soundboard and full vibration throughout the entire body.
The punchy midrange of the mahogany body accentuates the woodiness of the overall tone.
The C-9 has a C-shape neck and flat fingerboard characteristic of traditional classical guitars, but also includes modern features such as a two-way truss rod for long-term neck stability.
Delicate aesthetic touches like its 1920s-inspired pearloid rosette add a touch of vintage elegance.
Other stand-out features such as a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, red purfling, high gloss finish, and a lightweight polyfoam case make this instrument a remarkable value, as one doesn't usually expect to find a guitar constructed of all solid woods selling in such a modest price range.
