    654mm. 19 frets on ebony fingerboard.

    As with all Rik Middleton classical guitars, this has a finely-applied lacquer finish.

  • Comments:

    Rik Middleton's instruments are precisely-crafted and with much thought in the process. The curves and cambers of the fingerboard and frets for example are very precisely done, aiming for ultimate playability. The sound is very classical with good balance, a rounded, sustaining middle and treble and a depth of bass that originates from the G body resonance. These are beautifully-crafted guitars representing very good value-for-money.
