This is a sweet sound in a sweet-looking package. The Loriente line of classical guitars marry fine tonewoods with lightweight, robust builds to create delightfully responsive guitars, like this 2007 Isabel. At the top of their line, this guitar features a light, sandy-colored Pau Ferro set for the back and sides and a Spanish Cedar top for lots of warmth. The Pau Ferro beefs up the middle registers, giving them lots of presence, and provides the player with a rich, balanced low-end. Inside the body, the hand-bent kerfing and bracing give the sides great rigidity, which translates into a strong projection for the complex warmth of that Spanish Cedar top. Lastly, this guitar has an excellently applied French Polish finish, which is thinner and yet stronger than machine-sprayed lacquer, such that the Spanish Cedar and Pau Ferro can vibrate more freely, and create more of the rich tonality this guitar excels with. This classical comes with a Protege hardshell case.
