Classical guitar – «Morency» model

The “Morency” model is actually the only model available and it is the result of all of my years of evolution as a luthier, this since 1978.
The construction is mainly traditional, and the influences that have marked its route come mainly from Bouchet, Fleta, Friederich, Ramirez III, and of course Torres.
The solid top use my own bracing design derived from the fan, and using wood and carbon fiber sparingly.
The bottom is thin and braced, the sides are laminated using two layers, and the laminated neck is attached to the body using a Spanish heel.
The fingerboard has no elevation and is profiled with a slight transversal radius, plus longitudinal reliefs.
The surface of the top/back is modern, slightly larger than a Ramirez 1A for example, and the depth of the body remains in similar proportions to the latter.Modèle Morency 2013 - Épinette allemande & palissandre Hondurien
