Description

Steve Fischer’s spin on the nylon string crossover dips its pen in the company ink of both flattops and classicals for exceptionally playability and responsiveness. Our 2015 Moderna is done up in European Maple and Engelmann Spruce, features a slight fretboard radius and cutaway as creature comforts, and is bound in Rosewood and purfling for an elegant presentation.


The Euro Maple body lends a hint of dryness to the upper mids and trebles that really helps them cut through the mix, while the bass retains a balance between warmth and clarity to round out the voice. The nut is wider than average for a steel string at 1 29/32”, but not as wide as a traditional classical—this means those complex chord shapes are that much easier to fret without added string buzzes from overlapping fingers. A trim punching weight of 3lb 8oz makes this a crossover guitar that’s difficult to put down, period.

I have seen the popularity of crossover guitars skyrocket during my time running Dream Guitars. But finding a high quality, handmade crossover is still tricky. This Fischer is a great example of how a handmade guitar from an independent maker offers so much tone, musicality, and precise playability. This guitar is featherweight and responsive, with beauty and power in perfect balance. Adept for many styles from jazz to Brazilian and classical to pop and rock. And so easy to play, your fingers will thank you.
