Description

Featherweight build making for a powerful voice. Our 2018 Francois Leonard is a fantastic example of modern French lutherie with Flamed Maple back and sides plus Spruce on top, a 650mm setup, and 3.5lb build weight. Quick and lively voice with a bright, expressive string energy across the registers, thanks to a lattice bracing system and doubled sides, and Leonard’s masterful French Polish technique throughout to keep the tonewoods as light and resonant as possible.

Maple and Spruce was very popular on early classical guitars, and it creates a wonderful clarity and brilliance that creates a spatial quality in this guitar.
 
France’s own Francois Leonard comes steeped in influences from Daniel Friederich to Dominique Field, and his guitars are correspondingly responsive, powerful, and elegant. This 2018 Classical has an understated aesthetic and slim build weight to go with its energetic voice.
