The Classical guitars that I make are based on a long tradition of luthiery handed down through the generations by makers such as Ramirez, Boucher, Torres, Fleta and many others. The basic frame remains very similar but internal construction has developed taking advantage of technology and new materials.The constant is the search for tone and playability.
Typical construction and fan bracing of my classical guitars.
The Making of my Classical guitars has been informed and inspired by a long tradition of guitar makers who have handed down their skills and observations over hundreds of years. The most influential in modern times has been Antonio Torres who is recognised to as having changed the internal and external appearance of the classical guitar into the form most recognised today.
Ramirez,Boucher,Fleta ETC expand up to Australian Smallman. New technology and materials have played their part.
