      La Patrie

      A solid cedar top and mahogany body give this beauty singing tone.

      The La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar has a solid cedar top and solid mahogany back and sides. Also features mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, rosewood bridge with compensated saddle, gold "lyra" style tuners with pearloid buttons, and semi-gloss satin finish. The Concert guitar is La Patrie's top-of-the-line of the mahogany/cedar models. The Concert receives eight coats of lacquer that are buffed down to a highly responsive high gloss finish. This special process takes eight days to complete.

      800-Year Old Trees
      All LaPatrie guitars feature solid cedar tops. The wood used in these tops can be found only in cedar trees that have an average age of about 800 years. The tight, straight grain in this wood makes it strong in the direction of the string tension while at the same time flexible across the grain lines. It is this combination of rigidity and flexibility that give the guitar top its resonance. The vibration of the guitar top is the most crucial element of its sound.

      Lacquer Finish
      LaPatrie guitars are finished with a special lacquer formula. This finish is light enough to allow the wood to breath and vibrate freely. The tops resonating capacity actually improves as the guitar is played over an extended period of time. This gradual improvement in the response of the top is often referred to as "aging". Poly finishes inhibit top vibration and are therefore never used on LaPatrie guitars. Many other guitars use a thick plastic finish that smothers top vibration and prevents the benefits of aging.

      Classics that are comfortable to play
      Classical guitars of the past have typically been made with thick neck dimensions, while this promoted a certain amount of neck stability, it often made certain playing aspects difficult to execute. It is for this reason that special attention was directed to the neck design of the LaPatrie guitars. Neck width and string spacing conform to classical standards, but a new truss rod system allows the profile of the neck to be reduced producing a neck of extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability. The LaPatrie necks are carved from Honduras mahogany. All LaPatrie models feature a rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Case sold separately.

        Comments about La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar:

        I bought this guitar as a replacement for the one my dad got back in the 60's. He gave that one to me and I started playing at 11. This guitar was my best friend (we moved quite often so I had no friends and was homeschooled) for the next 20 odd years. I took it everywhere. When my life fell apart and I had no one, that guitar was there for me, comforting me with its beautiful tone and familiarity. 4 or 5 years ago, after a wonderful trip to the beach off the Florida panhandle with my now wife, I leaned this guitar, my best friend since childhood against the side of my suv whilea I put away our chairs in the back... Tragically I forgot it was there, got in and backed up cutting my wheel hard running over the guitar that had provided me with so much enjoyment in my lonely life. I still have its broken body in a gig bag with no plans to discard it. Ever.

        This la Patrie Concert plays better and is immaculately flawless and somehow the rone is similar as well! This is surprising because my dads guitar had a very unique tone. Almost as if it had its own built in chorus/reverb. The nothing can ever replace it, this guitar is closer to home then I would have ever imagined. Good job and thank you La Patrie, gGodin

            La Patrie Concert

            Comments about La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar:

            I decided to get another classical for Bossa Nova after not owning one for abour 20 years. Takes some getting used to with the wide neck. The neck also has a flat profile which is different than some classicals I've played. Takes a bit of adaptation and getting used to but it's very playable.

            Tone is quite decent but I don't much care for the strings Godin uses and will experiment with some different types. I'd read on the net that some people thought the Concert was jangly and trebly but I don't get that whatsoever. It's quite mellow.
            Solid cedar top and solid mahogany sides and back for a great price is hard to beat.
            Really an amazingly well made guitar for the money. Fit and finish is very good. A couple small areas on the binding where some faint stain marks show.
            Considering this guitar is made in a modern facility in Quebec by Canadians and not in China, the value is unbeatable.

            Comments about La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar:

            I verified with LaPatrie customer service that after 2010 this guitar is made with solid Mahogany sides and backs.
            The LaPatrie Concerts made after 2010 are made with solid Mahogany sides and backs, making this an even better value in my opinion.

            The Consert models made after 2010 have solid Mahogany backs and sides in addition to solid wood tops. This makes them am even better value in my opinion.

            Great guitar, amazing for the price.

            By Marc Velez

            from New Jersey

            Comments about La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar:

            You really just can't go wrong with this guitar. As my first classical, I thought it'd take a considerable amount of time to adjust to the size of both the body and neck, as well as getting used to playing in a different position when practicing classical. The guitar's been so comfortable that there was never a need to adjust. Everything felt incredibly natural. Moving along the fretboard is flawless, the tones produced are all wonderful. All the strings ring out evenly, there's never "too much" of any sound.

            I was pleased when I first played the guitar. After being able to play it for a year, I've definitely just fallen in love with it. It's really hard to find any flaws in this guitar, and for the price, it's easy to overlook any of the minor flaws you may happen to find. If you're having trouble between this guitar and any other in its price range, I'd recommend the La Patrie Concert Classical without a doubt--the quality of this guitar's even pushing me to purchase a Seagull guitar for my first steel string!
            INCREDIBLE quality. Straight out the box, this guitar both looked and felt incredible. It plays incredibly well--I've played a few classical's in a similar price range and none could compare to this one. After a year of pretty heavy use, this guitar's still sounding as well as it did upon arrival. Frets, nut, bridge are all in great working order. Tuners have never been an issue. Finish was flawless, and if you take proper care of your guitar you'll see very few nicks or dings. Everything about this guitar looks, feels, and sounds incredible. Now all you need to do is throw your favorite set of strings on it, and you've got yourself a guitar to enjoy for years without a doubt.
            Consider everything said about the quality of the guitar, and then consider that this is a classical guitar for this price. After a year of playing this guitar, I'm convinced that it's a steal at this price--I would've happily paid more for an instrument like this one. It's proven to be durable as well, haven't had a reason to bring it for repairs or anything of the sort despite not exactly treating it as well as I should, making it an even greater value.

            Comments about La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar:

            I used to own a Washburn classical until i tried one of these. I quickly sold it and bought this one, Oh My! no regrets. Such a warm sound, no buzzing, easy to play and gorgeous to look at. This is one guitar that I will never sell or trade.
            Standard features but way above standard sound.
            Plays and sounds as good as one costing way more.

            Comments about La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar:

            Buy it! La Patries/Seagulls are great guitars!
            I bought this new in 1997. It's been a great guitar all of this time with no issues. I prefer the cedar top, it is darker than spruce and I played the "bass" parts in my old classical guitar ensemble at school. We had between 5 and 10 guitarists. Try a couple of spruce tops, then the cedar to see if you like it better. It's my day to day guitar and I have beaten on this thing and it still sounds great. For rock, I use it to play Originals and Alex Lifeson/Steve Howe bits at my solo gigs. The only thing I had go wrong is I brought it to Brazil and the humidity (or heat) melted the glue on the bridge in the hotel. I brought it back to the States for a re-glue and no problems. I also made the mistake of installing a passive pickup, I should have installed an active one to really bring out the tones. For this price range, it is a wonderful guitar and Made in Canada (this guitar is) sounds much better (literally) than Made In China!
            Exceptional quality. Truss Rod is great on this classical and it stays in tune!
            Can't get a great North American guitar (classical) these days in this range!

            Comments about La Patrie Concert Classical Guitar:

            I picked up this guitar in a music store to carry around with me, because carrying around my Arapicio was not good for my nerves. This guitar has some great features: great sound with easy playability. All in all this guitar is hard to beat for the price. I liked it better than the Cordobas in this price range.
