La Patrie Motif Classical Acoustic-Electric Guitar NaturalLa Patrie Motif Classical Acoustic-Electric Guitar Natural
The Motif Classical Guitar from La Patrie has a solid cedar top, laminated mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, rosewood bridge with compensated saddle, gold lyra style tuners with pearloid buttons, Quantum I Electronics, and a semi-gloss satin finish.The Motif takes its compact dimensions from turn-of-the-century parlor guitars. This is an excellent instrument for anyone more comfortable with a smaller instrument. The compact body of the Motif suggests a 3/4 size instrument but this is a full-scale guitar. Most children from about six years old can handle the Motif quite comfortably and because they are practicing on a full-scale switching to a full size classical guitar can be accomplished with very little adjustment. There is more to the compact body style of the Motif than comfort, this is a serious guitar with many of the same features that professional guitarists look for in the best handcrafted instruments. The solid cedar top and genuine lacquer finish ensure that this guitar will not only sound great when you first receive it but will actually become better sounding with playing over time. The body is made from a three-way lamination of hardwood that includes a poplar center sandwiched between two layers of mahogany. The Motif neck is made from Honduras mahogany with an Indian rosewood fingerboard. Case sold separately.800 Year Old TreesAll LaPatrie 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 FinishLaPatrie guitars are finished with a special lacquer foTop: Solid CedarBack & sides: MahoganyNeck: MahoganyFretboard: RosewoodNut width: 2Bridge: Rosewood w/compensated saddleScale Length: 25-1/2Upper Bout: 9-1/4Lower Bout: 13Tuners: Gold lyra style w/ pearloid buttonsFinish: Semi-glossElectronics: QuantumCase sold separately
