This is Elias Bonet's traditional model, which is built with a five-fan bracing pattern with solid, well-aged woods and using templates designed according to guidelines provided by one of his teachers, Juan A. Reyes. Basically this is the Spanish system of 'closing the sound box from behind' which draws greatly from two of Elias' historical points of reference: Antonio de Torres and Alex van der Horst (aka "Alejandro"). Elias works the seasoned wood to deliver a deep richness of timbre, providing a wide range of tonal colors and nuances to be heard along the length of the strings in the right-hand area, resulting in an intimate and moving expressiveness. The guitar also has ample volume to satisfy any professional need in the studio or concert stage. The guitar has bold, modern look with geometrical patterns in the rosette and head veneer - inspired by seventh-century Persian carvings - all executed with a high level of precision. Although a used guitar, it is in excellent condition with only some modest playing wear in the finish.Photos of this guitar taken during construction.
