This 26 string model can be also customised with a larger sound box, a spruce or a cedar soundboard instead of birch wood. This option allows for the use of carbon fibre instead of nylon strings which, combined with the bigger sound box will provide a bigger sound and a better tone. Please contact me for more information.
