Classical Cutaway

This guitar was built for a client who has been predominantly a steel string player.  Being a lover of the music of Al Di Meola, he was recently inspired to venture into the world of nylon stringed guitars. Although not technically a “crossover” guitar since the neck width is typical of a classical guitar,  I did radius the fretboard slightly to make “barring” a bit more familiar to a steel string player.
