Description

This rare and boisterous Schneider boasts some of the most unique and innovative bracing ever seen in the guitar world: Kasha style bracing. Schneider's Kasha bracing takes a step from the traditional, but the flying buttresses, chaotic bracing pattern and a little black magic bring about astounding results in this guitar. The Premium Grade Redwood top and back pair with ultra rigid Brazilian Rosewood sides to give this instrument a powerful, sustaining sound that projects with gusto. In voice, it is inspiring - the bass rolls out with ease, followed by full, strong mids and great, punching and sustaining trebles. It is equal parts professional instrument and masterwork objet d'art. One you simply won't want to miss.

When it comes to classical guitars, most builders do their best to stay within the lines of tradition and make their mark in some subtle change or nuance. Richard Schneider chose a completely different approach, but with astounding results. This Kasha braced guitar is a powerhouse, full voiced and with a rich and colorful timbre. It sings sweetly, but is ready to fill a concert hall if you give it the chance. It is a rare and beautiful combination of strength and control.
