ARCHIVE  HE Doubletop (until 2023)

Back and sides made from high-quality lightweight Madagascar rosewood and a double-top soundboard made from finest cedar wood. The cedro neck has been reinforced several times at its core with rosewood / mahogany, including the heel. The asymmetrically weighted domed soundboard that uses a sandwich design optimises efficiency. The HE Doubletop delivers superior dynamics, a balanced range of tone colour and a crisp and sustained sound. The materials used for this classical guitar along with its workmanship and sound mean that it is able to meet elevated demands.

The pierced rosewood-maple-Macassar head and noble designer tuning machines by Nicoló Alessi underline the high demands that the HE Doubletop makes on quality. This classical guitar impresses visually with its body that has been finished with a UV-cured high-gloss varnish and a soundboard that has been elaborately hand-polished with shellac.
