Solid Cedar Top

The La Patrie Etude Classical Guitar features a stunning select pressure tested solid cedar top. This manufacturing process of pressure testing each solid top, ensures the highest levels of stiffness and rigidity along with maximum harmonic vibration. This process is becoming more and more popular with guitar manufacturing as it benefits the overall tone, projection and resonance of a guitar. It is this combination of quality, rigidity and flexibility that gives the top its resonance and appearance.

The Etude acoustic guitar is also environmentally friendly, as the wood used for the top is found only in Cedar trees that have previously fallen. This particular wood is well know for its distinctive straight grain, and red-brown tones. It is a particular common choice for finger-style players.

Custom Polish For a Custom Appearance

Like all guitars in La Patrie series, the Etude features a stunning custom polished finish, which is inspired by the appearance of French polish of the 19th Century. Rather than featuring a thick coat of polish like standard classical guitars, the etude's custom polish is thinner and allows the top not only to be protected, but also to breathe and vibrate freely. This type of finish also ensures the sound gets better with age, and makes a worthwhile investment.

Innovative Double Function Truss Rod

As well as featuring a stunning body that resonates well, the Etude also features an innovative double-function truss rod system within its mahogany neck. Truss rods are never normally featured on classical guitars and have always been made with thick neck dimensions, yet its function on the Etude allows for a slimmer neck profile. This clever truss rod system offers extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability.

Attention to Detail

A beautiful guitar wouldn't be complete without the final touches. The Etude is nicely finished off with an intricate rosette, cream binding, rosewood fingerboard and bridge as well as a cream Tusq nut and a fully compensated saddle by Graphtech.
