All models, which include full or single cutaway body designs, are constructed with a choice of high quality tonewoods for the backs, sides and soundboards. Tonewoods that include premium and grade A solid spruce and cedar for the tops, while sapele and mahogany are the chosen woods for the backs and sides. Blackwood body bindings capture the splendour of those classic traditional lines adding a touch of elegance to high gloss, satin and open pore finishes, complete with intricate inlaid soundhole rosettes.
Open headstocks are in keeping with tradition while higher spec’d models feature stylishly inlaid maple caps, with engraved Santos Martinez initials and gold/black decorative machine heads with black or white pearl buttons. Necks with sculpted heels and super smooth, 22 fret pau ferro fingerboards allow for swift and accurate chord changes and solo runs.
Whilst all Santos Martinez classical guitars have a naturally dynamic and focused output, Fishman’s Clásica II Onboard Preamp System with an easy to read chromatic tuner, low profile control knobs, volume control, phase button and 2-band EQ, is the ideal choice to electrify and translate the lively full-toned, clear bass, warm mid-range and sweet high end response of the Preludio and Allegro electro-classic cutaways.
The Santos Martinez classical and electro-classical guitars combine rich, sweet toned performance and effortless playability and are enjoyed by students and professionals on stages all over the world.
