Godin Concert Classical Nylon 6 String RH Acoustic Guitar (049646)
GODIN 049646 DETAILS
A unique finish makes it unique, not only giving the instrument a shine, but also allowing the wood to vibrate freely.
A solid cedar top and mahogany body give this beauty singing tone.
The Godin Concert Classical Guitar has a solid cedar top and solid mahogany back and sides. Also features mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, rosewood bridge with compensated saddle, gold "lyra" style tuners with pearloid buttons, and semi-gloss satin finish. The Concert guitar is a top-of-the-line of the mahogany/cedar models. The Concert receives eight coats of lacquer that are buffed down to a highly responsive high gloss finish. This special process takes eight days to complete.
800-Year Old Trees
These guitars feature solid cedar tops. The wood used in these tops can be found only in cedar trees that have an average age of about 800 years. The tight, straight grain in this wood makes it strong in the direction of the string tension while at the same time flexible across the grain lines. It is this combination of rigidity and flexibility that give the guitar top its resonance. The vibration of the guitar top is the most crucial element of its sound.
Finished with a special lacquer formula that is light enough to allow the wood to breath and vibrate freely. The tops resonating capacity actually improves as the guitar is played over an extended period of time. This gradual improvement in the response of the top is often referred to as "aging". Poly finishes inhibit top vibration and are therefore never used on these guitars. Many other guitars use a thick plastic finish that smothers top vibration and prevents the benefits of aging.
Classics that are comfortable to play
Classical guitars of the past have typically been made with thick neck dimensions, while this promoted a certain amount of neck stability, it often made certain playing aspects difficult to execute. It is for this reason that special attention was directed to the neck design. Neck width and string spacing conform to classical standards, but a new truss rod system allows the profile of the neck to be reduced producing a neck of extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability. These necks are carved from Honduras mahogany. Concert models feature a rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Case sold separately.
