With a traditional body style themed on the small bodied guitars from the 1920’s and 30’s, this gorgeous nylon strung travel guitar delivers a focused, punchy, assertive tonality with high string-to-string definition and size defying volume, from its compact parlour sized body.
This beautifully crafted instrument has the perfect comfy palm-friendly neck for small hands, whilst a generous fingerboard width makes this acoustic guitar, ideal for other contemporary styles and for electric and steel-strung guitarists making the move to classical.
The Vintage nylon strung Viator is constructed using sensibly harvested tonewoods of the finest quality, selected for their striking looks and exceptional sustain and warm mellow tones.
Tight-grained Sitka spruce is renowned for its broad dynamic range and the perfect choice for the soundboard, whilst a body crafted from sapele produces a strong bass response, midrange and top end definition, enhanced with internal custom X scalloped bracing.
Eye catching features include a unique laser etched soundhole rosette and matching design around the top, open headstock design, open-geared smooth action machine heads and functional pin style bridge design for effortless string changing.
