GODIN 049653 DETAILS
The Concert is the top-of-the-line of the mahogany/cedar models. The Godin 049653 Concert CW features the Custom Polished finish that is buffed down to a highly responsive high gloss finish.
The Solid mahogany back and sides let your notes ring out with full-bodied sustain that will resonate not only in sound but with any player looking into classical nylon stringed guitars. A high-gloss custom polished finish makes sure that the instrument will stand out and shine, while the rosewood fingerboard feels great as you slide up and down the mahogany neck. And with the guitar's cutaway, it's easy to play higher notes. Those looking for an excellent mid-level classical guitar need look no further than the Concert CW.
The exceptional benefits of 800 year-old wood
The wood used in these tops can be found only in previously fallen cedar trees that have an average age of about 800 years or more. This wood features a tight straight grain, which produces greater rigidity while at the same time is flexible across the grain lines. This makes this instrument unique in terms of its gorgeous tone.
Custom polished finish
These guitars also feature a custom polished finish, similar to the French polish of the 19th Century. This finish allows the top not only to be protected but also to breathe and vibrate freely allowing the "aging" process to take its course. This "aging" process means that this guitar will actually sound better and better the more it's played over time.
Classics that are comfortable to play
Classical guitars of the past have typically been made with thick neck dimensions; while this enhanced the neck's stability, it often made playing more difficult. Because of this, special attention was directed to the neck design of these guitars. Neck width and string spacing conform to classical standards, but the truss rod system allows the profile of the neck to be reduced which produces a neck of extraordinary comfort, while increasing its stability. These necks are carved from Honduras mahogany.
