A carefully chosen, solid German Spruce top and all-solid Indian rosewood back and sides ensure incredibly the pure classical tone and increased volume of the model FC. The neck is Honduran cedar reinforced with ebony, and the fingerboard is ebony. A rosewood bridge and bone nut and saddles provide ringing tone and sustain. Handmade gold-plated tuners and silver-plated frets are installed to last a lifetime. The body binding and wood rosette are exquisite.
