Classical Guitar Models
I make a few different nylon-string guitars. They are very much in the solid-wood traditional style, with Torres-style fan bracing or derivatives of it. I have measured and built models of designs by Torrres, Fleta, Hauser, Rodriguez and Ruck. My main difference with traditional building is that I use neck joints rather than the Spanish heel assembly method. This allows me to make fine action adjustments without compromising the bridge geometry. I use a domed solera for building the body in my most recent work.
