Left-Handed Classical & Nylon Guitars
The left handed classical nylon guitar is an instrument with history waiting to be unlocked. With its timeless sound and style, you will love developing your technique on one of these truly special guitars. There was a time when it was difficult for left handed players to find a classical guitar that suited their needs. There was also a time when classical guitar strings were made of catgut. Luckily for everyone, both of those problems are behind us and you can now easily find the nylon stringed classical guitar that is right for you. Buying a new instrument can be a challenging process. It is important to know what you're looking for to ensure you make a wise purchase and enjoy your instrument for years to come. With classical nylon guitars, there are a number of factors to keep in mind before making your purchase. The soundboard, or the top of your guitar, will play an important role in shaping your experience. Simply put, different materials provide you with different results. A classical guitar with a spruce top, such as the Taylor 200 model, offers a crisp sound, where as a cedar top like the Etude QI from La Patrie showcases warmer, dark tones. Knowing the kind of sound you're looking to achieve is crucial when making your purchase. Also important is the size of the neck on your classical guitar. You'll want to make sure it fits comfortably in your hand so you are able to easily make your way around the fret board. You don't want to strain your hand by playing a guitar with a neck that is too big. A general rule is the bigger the guitar, the bigger the neck, so keep that in mind as you make your choice. Body shape should also be considered when purchasing a classical nylon guitar. If you plan on making use of the upper frets, you will want to consider a guitar with a cut away body design such as the Kremona Rondo R65CW. A cut away provides easier access to the fret board, allowing you to explore a more complete range of notes and keys. In the end, the best left handed classical nylon guitar for you is the one that helps you feel a connection to the music you love. Many guitars will sound better with time as they begin to "open up," producing sounds even more beautiful than the ones you created the first time you sat down with it. No matter what style of music you're hoping to play, you can rest assured that there is a left handed classical guitar out there for you.
