Description

Our latest Steve Porter Quantum Classical! Built with a nod to both Thomas Humphrey and Gil Carnal in design, Porter’s Quantum model features an elevated fingerboard and dual soundports, a lattice-braced Cedar top, and dark, even-grained Indian Rosewood back and sides. The handmade rosette is composed of Ebony, Bloodwood, Cherry, and Maple. The voice is agile and responsive, and we appreciate the dynamic range in particular. Sloane tuners and a thin French Polish finish for maximum resonance—and a sterling side dot at the 7th fret for understated fingerboard orienteering.

Steve Porter is something of a magician. He builds the sort of guitar that plays super strong but also maintain the beauty and character that I look for in a nylon string instrument. The Quantum model is reminiscent of the Thomas Humphrey Millenium design in many ways.
