Back and sides made from high-quality Mexican Ziricote and the soundboard from finest spruce. The core of the cedro neck is reinforced with extremely dense and rigid African blackwood. The domed soundboard with lattice bracing optimises efficiency. The 8-Meister delivers excellent dynamics, a substance-rich sound, crispness and good attack. Two additional strings ensure particularly deep, full-bodied and powerful bass notes. Our default tuning for this guitar is contra A, C, E, A, D, g, b, e'. The spacing is slightly reduced for comfortable playability. The materials used for this classical guitar along with its workmanship and sound mean that it is able to meet the highest demands.

The pierced rosewood-maple-macassar head and high-end tuning machines by “Nicoló Alessi” underline the high quality of the 8-Meister. 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 provided with our new open-pored “Natural-Shellac”.
