I played a cypress classical for a while, a Santos replica made by the UK luthier Christopher Dean. It was a very nice guitar with a unique tone. But after a year or so I found the cypress being a bit "dry" and too Flamenco like compared to the warmer tone of a rosewood or maple guitar. Just my personal experience. The guitar is now played with much joy by a talented young student of Antigoni Goni in Brussels.
