CFox Nylon Braced for Traditional Strings
By Guest |
CFox Guitars has now optimized its Concert nylon string guitar for not only Thomastik-Infeld Rope Core strings, but traditional nylon strings as well. The resulting rich classical voice serves an increasing number of electric and acoustic steel string players who now can enjoy the warmer sounds and lighter touch of nylon strings without sacrificing their hard-won playing technique to the wide neck and high action of traditional nylon string guitars.
Jean-Pierre Durand of the world music ensamble Incendio says, "the CFox Concert Nylon is the most seductive and rewarding instrument I've ever played."
The Concert nylon string comes standard with a 1 3/4 inch graphite-reinforced neck, compound radius fretboard and extra-low action for effortless playability. It is available in optional neck widths for different playing styles and it features a solid Sitka spruce soundboard, East Indian rosewood back and sides, and ebony fretboard, bridge and headplate. The Sonoma series Concert nylon string guitar pictured here is shown with the optional cutaway, extended fingerboard, and B-Band Core 99 pickup system. CFox nylon string models are available beginning at a suggested retail of $2900..
