According to Forsyths' website the AB has double back of cedar laminated onto African Rosewood, double sides of Cypress laminated onto African Rosewood for stiffness, carbon fibre reinforcement in the neck. It should have more volume and sustain in theory. Also, the back resonates if you hold the guitar away from you.Adrian Allan wrote: ↑Mon Sep 18, 2017 7:42 pmI bought my first Burguet guitar, a 1a, in 1996, after trying many other guitars that were hand-made by a variety of makers. The 1a outperformed them in every respect, and I kept the guitar until about three years ago.
I'm interested to know if the AB and AC guitars are only cosmetically better than the 1a, or if the construction methods, and thus sound and playability, offer an improvement over the 1a. I have never tried an AB or AC model.
Being the devils advocate here, you said in a previous post that you’d recommend Adalid or Hernandez and now that Burguet is one of the best , if you were to say one is better which would it be ?zavaletas wrote: ↑Sat Sep 23, 2017 4:08 pmAmalio Burguet is one of the better factories in Valencia, and makes a variety of models for Estudio guitars to concert instruments. I have been in their factory, and it is well equipped. Handmade, however, is a relative term. For the purest it might mean that everything is done by hand, with traditional hand tools. Obviously, a modern factory can't operate that way. But traditional methods of assembly is another matter-- and particularly with important components like the top-- a skilled luthier may be involved. The involvement of a skilled luthier certainly is greater in their higher level models.
