DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED IN ANDALUSIA SUPERBLY RESPONSIVE
In developing our new Classical and Flamenco guitars we started our journey in Cádiz, the beautiful most southern province in Andalusia and the home of the Classical guitar. Our aim was to learn more about the history, the music and construction of these amazing instruments before embarking on R&D. We started in the small hilltop town of Vejer de la Frontera, just south of the city of Cádiz where we met, talked and worked with local luthiers and players in the Cádiz area.

Over the coming months we studied four different construction styles and bracing systems and went to work building samples in our factory based on designs and guitars we made in Spain. The result of our journey and work is something we believe is very special and we’re proud to introduce CÁDIZ SERIES.

CÁDIZ offers responsive and engaging nylon string guitars of a quality and playability we think you’ll adore. Everything about them is considered and chosen. They are a new shape, different to Classicals we have made in the past, slightly taller, slightly narrower, more elegant.

In order to make the guitars as responsive as we could, we had to keep them as light as possible in construction while staying true to traditional design. So in the standard models there are no trussrods. Our necks are three-piece and a solid Ebony centre rod gives us the strength and lightness we need.

CÁDIZ models are also made with a Spanish heel neck joint. Ramirez and other great luthiers also influenced us when it came to choosing our scale length. The CÁDIZ scale length is longer than the standard 650mm (25.6”) you will find on many classical guitars. At 662mm (26.06”) our scale length raises the tension just a little and helps deliver more energy into the soundbox for us to harness and shape. We use AA Sitka tops on all CÁDIZ models. Saddle and nut are real bone, rosettes are wood mosaic and bridges and fingerboards are Pau Ferro or Rosewood.

The soundbox is more lightly built, the tops are graduated and each brace is custom cut and sanded with 4 varying widths in total. The bracing design gives a slight nod to Jose Ramirez III’s asymmetric architecture in the fact that our guitars have a treble bar. This is to stiffen up the treble side of the top a little more which helps us create very round, bell like trebles on our first three strings. We keep the bass side of the top light by using slightly thinner braces which helps us give the player very open, clear and strong bass response.

Other fine appointments include the use of traditional Cypress wood for the Flamenco model back and sides, which is paired with ebony binding. We believe CÁDIZ will engage any player, whether a seasoned professional classical player or someone looking for different tones from an engaging nylon string guitar. We hope they will create an intimacy between you and the instrument and as always we have done all we could to make beautifully designed instruments, as affordable as we could.

At Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12-point inspection checklist before being shipped.

First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets to manufacturer factory specifications. Any request made outside of manufacturer factory specifications can incur additional charges for parts and labor. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.

After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.

Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.

We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
