The top
For the classical guitar I use  a variations on the traditional bracing pattern: the fan bracing. This concept gives you great dynamics in combination with a great volume.

Cedar Top
Cedar gives a full sound. Rich bass. 
I love to make cedar tops with the a- symmetric  fan bracing.

Spruce top
European spruce gives a more bright tone.
I preferably use very old European spruce for the top. Old stable European spruce is a great choice for your classical guitar.

Lefthand concert guitar
Also custom made lefthand classical guitar. Special lefthand designed bracing concept. The quality but that special for left hand players.
It is hard to find a good left hand classical guitar. Contact me and I will make an instrument to  your hands.
The neck
The neck is  very stiff neck reinforced with carbon. I use a sandwich construction under the fingerboard.
Some players prefer a flat back of the neck, other prefer a round neck shape. Both options are possible.

The back and sides
I use double sides, very stiff. Indian rosewood in combination with maple inside.
I make the back with a stiff 4 brace construction. Optional I use a stabilizer inside the guitar.  These factors add to a awesome projection and a very loud sound.

Bridge

I don't use a slot in the bridge. The saddle will be a few mm high and 3 mm wide. It is possible to easily relocate the saddle to find perfect intonation: just like on a violin or a gipsy guitar. According to special wishes it is possible to build a guitar with two saddles or even six! .
