I build my guitars in one single quality and model. I construct approximately three instruments per year, for that very reason I apply all of my knowledge and art for these guitars to be the very best that I can make.
Being a guitar teacher has given me the experience to give identity to my instruments’ sound. The sound itself is full, and of notable balance between its lows that serve as a perfect mixture when performing chords and its crystal clear highs.
Playability due to the perfect calibration of the strings height. Most notable is the great tonal range that can be achieved with the right hand, which with all of its qualities make it an excellent instrument for expression.
The woods that I use are Bahia rosewood, Indian rosewood, Bolivian rosewood, caoba, carob and guayubira for the back and sides. Spruce or red cedar for tops. Ebony, Indian rosewood and guayacán for fretboards. American cedar for the neck. Bahia rosewood and guayacán for the bridge.
The scale of strings is 650 mm. Fretboard measures are: 52 mm at the top and 62 mm on the fret No. 12. Neck width: 23 mm. Distance between strings and bone 8.5 mm. Distance between string on the bridge: 11.8 mm 20 German alpaca frets 2 mm. Tuning and changes according to the instrumentalist.
The finish is shellac, because it exerts less resistance to vibration than other industrial coatings. Being a natural product is better absorbed by the wood and gives a superior finish highlighting the grain, especially when it is mirrored. Some back and sides are transparent nitrocellulose lacquer finish in order to not obscure pearl inlays and ornaments.
The rosette is handmade in the traditional way. Mosaics form the "yarará" (rattlesnake) spine, native to the coasts and estuaries of Paraná River and bears the imprint of where I live. It is a very laborious work and demands several days to complete. But it is the signing of the luthier and my guitars have no time limit for completion. This is a work of art and personal.
