Description

Another beautifully made instrument from this fine maker. This instrument features a gorgeous piece of spruce for the soundboard and an exotic set of green ebony for the back and sides with contrasting lighter sapwood in the center of the back. Like the previous guitars Elias has built for us, this is his traditional model, which is built with a five-fan bracing pattern and made with solid, well-aged woods, 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. We are happy to be the exclusive US dealer for Elias Bonet and look forward to seeing many more guitars in the future!
