A limited edition guitar, with Spanish character, powerful sound and made with woods of more than 30 years
The Luthier India model is quickly distinguished by the wonderful Indian Rosewood selected for the sides and back of this instrument. A wood of first quality selected meticulously and with more than 30 years of antiquity.
In fact, the wood used for the sides and back is the characteristic that gives name to this interesting model of an exclusive and limited edition, at the same time that it provides exceptional sound qualities.
Different types of finishes
High quality red cedar has been used for the top, with a gloss finish using Nitro Lacquer or French polish.
In the Luthier India model, it is possible to choose French polish for the whole instrument. A type of natural varnish produced by an insect called "coccus lacquer" that provides a high quality finish. In addition, this varnish generates a thinner layer than the rest of synthetic varnishes, which contributes to improving the sonorous characteristics.
