GREAT CLASSICAL CONSTRUCTION
To get the desired acoustic classical sound out of this guitar, Redwood have made well-informed decisions on which tonewoods to use. Thus, Redwood have employed walnut tonewood to build the back and sides of the C-230CE model. Walnut is a hard, dense type of tonewood which has occasionally been compared to Koa. It generates a range of warm, bright overtones with immense strength in powering low ends and biting highs. Sitting aboard the walnut back and sides is a spruce body top, and spruce is an extremely popular type of tonewood for this part of the guitar as it helps it to resonate openly. ABS binding has been used on the body for a neat finish on the spruce top, however this also offers protection at the edges from unwanted chips and nicks, as well as supporting the top from buckling or warping.
Married firmly to the body is a nato neck which has an 18-fret sonokelin fingerboard. This has an incredibly smooth playing feel with a typically wide classical neck profile. Furthermore, the frets are of an ample enough size for you to get to grips with especially for those who enjoy more complex chords. The cutaway design in the body gives you better access to the upper frets for getting to those higher notes. The nylon strings feel silky on your fingers making it easier to develop your own playing technique.
At the top of the neck is a quintessential classical style headstock with pearl tuning keys sat on gold machine heads that uphold tuning integrity with sheer precision.
