Description

This is our first Kris Barnett, here from 2019, and we hope it won’t be our last. Such a beauty. Gabon Ebony body with Cedar on top (itself partially ‘bent’ and paired with an elevated fingerboard for easy playability); Spanish Cedar neck; resonant French Polishing throughout; and modern features like a two-way adjustable truss rod and bolt on neck! It’s refreshing to see contemporary designs like these cropping up in the nylon string world, offering new ways to contribute to, and elevate, the Classical repertoire.

What a powerful guitar. A lot of energy, volume, and bass response.
 
Focused trebles carry the tune here, mixing up sweetly with the mids and bottom end. The building innovations Kris employs here allow for easier access to the top frets without resorting to a cutaway; I’m a fan.
