The Esteve Model 7SR is the first in Manuel Adalid’s line of All Solid Wood Classical Guitars. Using seasoned woods selected by Manuel himself.
This all solid, team built Esteve features a Canadian cedar top, East Indian back & sides and a West African ebony fingerboard.
The sound is typically spanish with a loud projecting body with brilliant high notes. Traditional 'C' neck block and fan bracing aid in vibration of the top which makes the guitar not only loud but maintain a wonderful sustain.
Traditional 'C' neck blocks are deisgned to be lightweight but also to let the top and back really vibrate. Using these neck blocks means the bodies can be made under a lot less tension and in turn vibrate a lot more.
Top: Cedar (Thuja Plicata)
Back and sides: Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia latifolia)
Neck: Samanguila (Khaya ivorensis)
Fingerboard: Ebony (Diospyros Crassiflora Hiern)
