I agree with everything that Barboiron wrote; however, although I agree the neck of this guitar is wide, it is not too wide. I like a wide neck and so it's good for me. It takes all kinds, and I like a wide neck; like th: the handle is wide and it is certainly. It takes all tastes and mine are much to wide sleeves.
It is even nicer than the factory Homeland practice varnish lightweight and it has a real stick in hand, and not a piece of plastic. The handle slides flawlessly, it is not only large but a little (too) thick curl well in hand, that brief happiness.
The box is a little in the same style.
I owned a classic La Patrie Etude, from the same plant, in practice, the "Folk Cedar" Art & Lutherie is the version string metal guitar classic "La Patrie Etude". In the same energy, the same dream sleeve (the version on nylon is wider) both same finish, vintage, classy and probably fragile, even and especially violin impeccable.
By Robert Godin, sacrifices are made on the frills (overall group guitars are stripped or spartan) but not on the quality of the wood or assembly (which is nickel)
In short it is a very endearing little scratches
As explained by Barboiron
Note There are three sizes in Art and Lutherie guitars, the dreadnought, classic, at the other end to any small parlor AMI format, this folk forth between the two, smaller than a dreadnought but less riquiqui that AMI.
There are better, but not at this price level.
Again this choice? unhesitatingly
Made in Quebec La Patrie. Solid cedar top, wild cherry back and sides, flamed maple neck, 14 frets before the body, rosewood fingerboard, tune to 631 mm. No electronics. The shape is reminiscent of both a 000 and a classical guitar with a thicker body. Its very simple line and satin finish "antique burst" are a joy to behold.
Very well finished. The neck is relatively wide for folk but comfortable.
The body is smaller than a dreadnought but its thickness gives volume and sound projection.
This guitar has character. Its a rather rich medium, which gives a lot of presence. The spectrum is present but without the side of caricature Dreadnought (warning this will not suit everyone). Proof of quality: the different types of ropes well developed. My choice fell on strings rather brilliant to balance the slightly dull the cedar.
Enough to intimate fingerstyle, we discover the richness acoustic with a pick in his "falling in", you have to get the sound. It is a true blues machine!
This is not the easiest guitar to play, but when we found how to talk to you will be rewarded. Purchased primarily for the look and his side "roots". Kept for several years for all its other qualities.
