CONCERT LINE NEW CENTURY DTL
The NEW CENTURY DTL is a further development of the NEW CENTURY LATTICE.
The combination of a double top (sandwich construction with cedar/nomex/carbon) and a lattice bracing made of spruce brings a little more dynamics and balance. The flat top construction together with the steeper excitation angle, caused by the "elevated fingerboard", also supports these requirements. All other details were taken from the NEW CENTURY LATTICE.
With the "elevated fingerboard" construction new standards are set. They enable easier playing in higher positions and the monitor sound hole ensures better self-awareness. With the new bridge made of thermo-modified chequers tree, a significantly lower weight and less damping is achieved than with a rosewood bridge. The armrest ensures comfortable playing.
This combination makes the NEW CENTURY DTL an exceptionally good instrument in terms of price/performance in upscale, modern classical guitar construction.
