Built by our most experienced luthiers in the Godin acoustic studio. This guitar is top-of-the-line in every respect. The beautifully understated appearance is perfectly complimented by the Collection’s exquisite sound and feel.800 Year Old TreesAll La Patrie 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 top its resonance. The vibration of the guitar top is the most crucial element of the sound.Lacquer FinishLa Patrie guitars are finished with a special lacquer formula. This finish 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 La Patrie guitars. Many other guitars use a thick plastic finish that smothers top vibration and prevents the benefits of aging.Classics that are comfortable to playClassical guitars of the past have typically been made with thick neck dimensions, while this promoted a certain amount of neck stability, it often mTop: Solid CedarBack & sides: Solid Indian RosewoodNeck: MahoganyFretboard: RosewoodNut width: 2-3/32Bridge: Rosewood w/compensated saddleScale Length: 25-1/2Tuners: 2-tone gold & Black lyra style w/ buttonsFinish: SatinElectronics: Quantum ICase sold separately
