The design of my first guitar was inspired by La Suprema created by Antonio Torres (1817-1891). Since the construction of this first guitar in 2007, each successive guitar has undergone further sound and construction experiments by slowly modifying, adjusting and changing intricacies in the design.
At this moment I prefer to build relatively small guitars and focus primarily on one model, so I can know it deeply. In this way I can understand how sounds develop whit every small changes I make on that model. With the same “plantilla” I build a flamenco or a classical guitar.
Flamenco guitars are lighter build than classical ones. The tops have sometimes parallel braces instead of fanned ones. A low action and a low profile bridge, along with a truly flat fretboard (no relief) give the metallic percussive sound and easy playability,characteristic of a flamenco guitar.
For back and sides I use Spanish cypress mostly, but other woods could be used if wanted.
I tend to favor a narrower and thiner neck for them in comparison with classical.
I build a few styles of Classical guitars. Some are closer to Torres and others more like Hauser style. Sometimes I build a sort of lattice using only wood instead of carbon fiber.
For the necks, I use Spanish cedar mostly, many times several pieces are glued together. In some necks I add some wood for aesthetics purposes or reinforce them with carbon fiber or steel truss rod.
