CÁDIZ offers responsive and engaging nylon string guitars of a quality and playability we think you?ll adore. Everything about them is considered and chosen. They are a new shape, different to Classicals we have made in the past, slightly taller, slightly narrower, more elegant. The soundbox is more lightly built, the tops are graduated and each brace is custom cut and sanded with 4 varying widths in total.
The bracing design gives a slight nod to that of the Jose Ramirez III?s asymmetric architecture in the fact our guitars have a treble bar. This is to stiffen up the treble side of the top a little more which helps us create very round, bell like trebles on our first three strings. We keep the bass side of the top light by using slightly thinner braces which helps us give the player very open, clear and strong bass response.
In order to make the guitars as responsive as we could, we had to keep them as light as we could in construction while staying true to traditional design. So in the standard models there are no trussrods. Our necks are three-piece and a solid Ebony centre rod gives us the strength and lightness we need. Our Hybrid models do have a trussrod to allow for relief to be adjusted on the radiused fingerboards. CÁDIZ models are also made with a Spanish heel neck joint.
Ramirez and other great luthiers also influenced us when it came to choosing our scale length. The CÁDIZ scale length is longer than the standard 650mm (25.6?) you will find on many classical guitars. At 660mm (26.?) our scale length raises the tension just a little and helps deliver more energy into the soundbox for us to harness and shape.
This guitar is brand new, with no dings, dents, fretwear, or shop wear. The guitar will come with the original factory packaging, and will include the legendary DuBaldo Music case candy. Gig bags and hard-shell cases for this model are sold separately.
