I've got an m14 classical and it's fantastic. Seriously good guitars for the money. I've played loads of them and they've all been very good. Surprised they're not mentioned more often to be honest.OldPotter wrote: I haven't seen a Camps guitar but there are a couple of members who have tried the classical models and liked them.
Indeed. Dare I mention Baroque lutes?rojarosguitar wrote:Radiused fingerbaords are not new at all to classical guitars. A friend of mine had a Hans Hermann Herb classical guitar with radiused fb in 1981 and quite likely it wasn't the first that existed . There can be quite complex radiused constructions in classical guitar. Some makers make a twisted radiused fb, so that the saddle bone is equally high on treble and bass side ('propeller' shape). For some people (like me) radiused fb faciliates the barrés, others prefer flat fb.
As to the cutaway, they help the access of the highest portion of the fretboard. Another answer to that issue are the elevated fretboards. I think cutaway is more of an aesthetical problem, because the acoustic changes in the guitar are very small through change of shape in that part of thebody.
Neither radiused fb nor cutaways are primarily intended as a help to steel string players to make the transition, IMHO.

Any thoughts (or a direction to posting this query elsewhere) would be greatly welcomed.
