STANDARD MODEL / SPRUCE
Traphagen Classical Guitars
The Standard Models
The standard models of guitars use the same overall dimensions yet the woods used differ. A standard model's top is made from either European or Englemen Spruce or Red Cedar. The back and sides can be made from various woods such as Brazilian Rosewood, Honduras Rosewood, East Indian Rosewood or Spanish Cypress. The neck wood is always constructed from Spanish Cedar, reinforced with a hidden graphite bar. The finger board uses Ebony. The bridge is made from Brazilian Rosewood. These are the various woods used in a standard model, resulting in a difference in tone and price.
For further information on the standard models, please follow the links above and contact me if you have any questions or need more information on the guitars.
Series 45 Guitars
Series 45 guitars are a batch of four guitars celebrating 45 years of stringed instrument making. These guitars were completed in 2015.
The woods on these guitars are full of unique character and sets that I have been collecting for several decades.
Spruce tops with bear claw patterns or amazing amounts of cross silk, cedar tops with rippling flame patterns.
Brazilian rosewood with spider web grain or other very rare patterns and colors. All the woods have exceptional tonal qualities.
The tuners are either Rodgers or Graf engraved with the traditional Esteso design.
Each one of these guitars will be unique and one of a kind, to be treasured for many years to come.
