Description

Livewire! This is one of Dake Traphagen’s Cyprus-backed Classicals (although Dake confirms he could easily modify it to be a Flamenco) with an Italian Spruce top and an L.R. Baggs pickup that’s itching to get playing. This beauty comes to us from 2014, and it’s got the marks to prove that it hasn’t been sitting around collecting dust over the past five years. A soundport in the upper bout keeps the player better in tune with their playing, and the lightweight build and quick setup combine to keep playability easy.

Here we have a Classical guitar built with Cypress for the back and sides. It looks like a Flamenco, but it is a true classical but with the immediacy and punch that you expect from Cypress. The result is a Classical guitar that is sweet with a very fast response. It’s exciting and fun to play this guitar.
