La Patrie

The La Patrie Classical Left-handed Guitar has a solid cedar top, mahogany laminate back & sides, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, rosewood bridge with a compensated saddle, gold "lyra" style tuners with pearloid buttons, and semi-gloss satin finish. The Concert 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 top its resonance. The vibration of the guitar top is the most crucial element of the 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 Left-Handed Classical Guitar:

    I love this guitar! As a very strong lefty, it was very tough to learn guitar right handed so my teacher suggested learning on a left handed guitar. It was very difficult to find a left handed guitar locally and I had to find one online. The ordering process was super easy and the guy I spoke to was very laid back. It's always scary to have a guitar shipped to you but it arrived in perfect condition. After some tuning I was amazed I could produce such beautiful sound in a very little time.

    La Patrie feels classical and classy

    By Mistaluvlee

    Comments about La Patrie Concert Left-Handed Classical Guitar:

    As a lefty, I search for a site that offers me choices and I decided to take a gamble on this Canadian creation. A Pleasant surprise. The wood work and craftsmanship are truly worth the price. Feels good in my hands. The low and mid tones are plush but I need a little more pluck to light up the room on the higher tones. So far the tuners are accurate but I do wonder if they will sustain with time. This is a good value, or that, I am certain.

    La Patrie Experiment

    By Mistaluvlee

    from Los Angeles, CA

    Comments about La Patrie Concert Left-Handed Classical Guitar:

    I am pleased with the craftsmanship and finish on this instrument. It has a comfortable feel and the mid to low tones resonate well. I have recorded using only this guitar and percussion and I am pleased with the result though I wish I had purchased the plug in model. It might be a bit shy on high overtones but I am happy that I purchased this La Patrie.
