Special Guitars - Orchestral, 7+ String, Electrified and Custom Guitars

Although the most common version modern Spanish Classical guitar is the 6 string 650 scale (nut to bridge bone) with 52 mm nut, we also support some of the more unique requirements, such as guitar family (orchestral) guitars and guitars with more than six strings as well as electrification and customised guitars. 


Beyond Six Strings

7 String Guitar-

The 7 string version is often used in Brazilian and Russian music.  I have often been asked for Brazilian 7 Strings and up until now has never found one that I felt ticked all the boxes. This one comes from the workshop of Juan Hernandez in Spain. You be the judge!

8-10 String

The 10 String is the guitar made famous by Narciso Yepes we bring in two models one at mid price range from Juan Hernadez in Spain and a high end concert models from the workshop of Paulino Bernabe.
