Artist HG500CEQ Solid Cedar Top Classical Guitar with EQ

The Solid Cedar top gives the HG500 that classic cedar warmth and bottom end. The back and sides are a beautiful Laminated Walnut which is very eye-catching. The guitar also features a Laurel fretboard and bridge and a 3 Ply Okoume neck with a Spanish Heel for the neck join. For those of you that don't know the Spanish heel, it is a much more difficult way of making a guitar but it greatly improves the sustain, on standard Classical guitars they often use dowels to attach the neck and a lot of tone can be lost through this type of joint.

The guitars preamp/equaliser is a Presys II by the acoustic preamp heavyweights, Fishman.

As with all our solid top guitars we use a bone nut and saddle, the density of the bone allows great tone and sustain, the typical plastic nuts are quite soft and have the effect of deadening the sound.

Note: This guitar does not have strap buttons
