CÁDIZ offers responsive and engaging nylon string guitars of a quality and playability you’ll adore. Everything about them is considered and chosen. The soundbox is more lightly built, the tops are graduated and each brace is custom cut and sanded with 4 varying widths in total. The bracing design gives a slight nod to that of the Jose Ramirez III’s asymmetric architecture in the fact the guitars have a treble bar. This is to stiffen up the treble side of the top a little more which helps create very round, bell like trebles on the first three strings. The bass side of the top is kept light by using slightly thinner braces which helps give the player very open, clear and strong bass response.
Ramirez and other great luthiers also influenced the design when it came to choosing scale length. The CÁDIZ scale length is longer than the standard 650mm (25.6”) you will find on many classical guitars. At 660mm (26.”) the scale length raises the tension just a little and helps deliver more energy into the soundbox.
