Classical Short Scale 620mm
This guitar is a combination of traditional and modern design featuring a bound fingerboard, fully compensated saddle, dual action truss rod and custom mosaic rosette, end graft and back decoration. Everything is customizable. (I also offer a full sized classical guitar)

This guitar is designed to be a professional instrument fit for any concert or recital. 

A usual guitar will have the following features but everything can be customized:

~ Top : Master spruce or Cedar.
~ Back/Sides : Any typical tonewood found on a classical guitar (Brazilian Rosewood pictured below)
~ Fingerboard (bound): Ebony or African rosewood.
~ Bridge : Ebony, African blackwood or Brazilian rosewood.
~ Neck - Spanish cedar neck or Honduran Mahogany with  dual action truss rod.
~ Binding- Ebony, rosewood.
~ Headstock : Slotted or Solid headstock (bound).
~ Bracing- Traditional 7 Spanish fan bracing (Other bracing can be discussed including lattice bracing)
~ High tension strings work best with a short scale- the feel is approximately that of a usual scale classical guitar.
~ 620mm scale (24.4")
~ 12 frets to body.

Finish options are
~ Thin Nitrocellulose (Entire guitar)
