The Valencia 430 series guitar offers the looks and playability of a small bodied steel string guitar with the distinctive tonal flavours of a nylon string guitar. This is a ‘crossover’ guitar aimed at the acoustic player who wants to experiment with the ‘nylon-string’ sound or the guitarist who wants a guitar for a range of playing styles. The select sitka spruce top and bound nato back and sides provide bright clarity of tone and excellent sustain. This classical hybrid guitar features a beautiful centre back strip and attractive herringbone pattern rosette. The mahogany neck with two-way truss rod, topped with a rosewood fingerboard with nickel frets provides for smooth, effortless playing. Gold machine heads with gold plated buttons and a smooth satin finish add to the smooth looks of the 430 series. GraphTech Nu-bone XB bridge saddle and nut and USA-made strings deliver a broad, rich tone with a full range of dynamics. Players will appreciate the distinctive tonal flavours of a nylon string guitar coupled with a sleek, ultra-playable neck and styling that steel string acoustic guitars are known for.
