My favorite classical guitar has a light construction. It is sensitive and full of tone. Trebles are thick and powerful and the bass is clear and open. I give special attention to the top material, which I think is the key to the best possible tone.
This model is a variation of an instrument built by Hermann Hauser for Segovia. I mixed in some influences from Santos Hernandes. Construction is classic Torres-type.
