A cutaway classical guitar developed on the basis of our Model 50s for easier grip and playability. The Florentine cutaway, combined with the thinner fretboard and the slightly reduced body depth, makes playing in all positions comfortable.

Back and sides made from, at 195°C thermally modified, high-quality German oak, the soundboard from spruce wood. The BasisCut TEF convinces with its good attack and clear, open sound. This means it responds well to almost any type of playing.

Made from solid tonewoods, this guitar comes with high-quality teflon-mounted ‘Rubner Gold Tuning Machines’ and bushed holes. Quality features include the neck, made from thermally modified alder wood that has been laminated throughout with African blackwood, a bridge saddle made from hard bone material and the African blackwood fretboard.

The open-pore finish with PUR matt varnish produces a surface that is relatively insensitive to dirt and signs of wear and helps the instrument develop a particularly open and free sound.
