OVERVIEW

A solid cedar top and mahogany body give this beauty singing tone.

The La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar has a solid cedar top and solid mahogany back and sides. Also features mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, rosewood bridge with compensated saddle, gold "lyra" style tuners with pearloid buttons, and semi-gloss satin finish. The Concert guitar is La Patrie's top-of-the-line of the mahogany/cedar models. The Concert receives eight coats of lacquer that are buffed down to a highly responsive high gloss finish. This special process takes eight days to complete.

800-Year Old Trees
All LaPatrie guitars feature solid cedar tops. The wood used in these tops can be found only in cedar trees that have an average age of about 800 years. The tight, straight grain in this wood makes it strong in the direction of the string tension while at the same time flexible across the grain lines. It is this combination of rigidity and flexibility that give the guitar top its resonance. The vibration of the guitar top is the most crucial element of its sound.

Lacquer Finish
LaPatrie guitars are finished with a special lacquer formula. This finish is light enough to allow the wood to breath and vibrate freely. The tops resonating capacity actually improves as the guitar is played over an extended period of time. This gradual improvement in the response of the top is often referred to as "aging". Poly finishes inhibit top vibration and are therefore never used on LaPatrie guitars. Many other guitars use a thick plastic finish that smothers top vibration and prevents the benefits of aging.

Classics that are comfortable to play
Classical guitars of the past have typically been made with thick neck dimensions, while this promoted a certain amount of neck stability, it often made certain playing aspects difficult to execute. It is for this reason that special attention was directed to the neck design of the LaPatrie guitars. Neck width and string spacing conform to classical standards, but a new truss rod system allows the profile of the neck to be reduced producing a neck of extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability. The LaPatrie necks are carved from Honduras mahogany. All LaPatrie models feature a rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Case sold separately.

Comments about La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar:

Although I did not buy mine at W&B--I did buy a Gibson L-5 from them--I was blown away by the craftsmanship, value and attention to detail on this guitar. Appropriate for beginner or gigging musician. I have a Takamine Classical Electric w/ a spruce top, but always missed my acoustic cedar top which I began my classical lessons on...this fit the bill ! I was in a shop in Flagstaff, AZ, picking up an electric they had set up. I was not in the market, but while waiting I saw the cedar top Patrie w/o electrics hanging up for around 400 bucks and bought it on the spot. NOT made in an overseas sweatshop AND comes w/ a nice hard shell case.
