The Classic Line 1 is an example of the high quality, handbuilt mostly nylon string guitars from the workshop of Christian Stoll, Germany.
- Back/Sides: East Indian Rosewood
- Top: Cedar
- Neck: Mahogany
- Neck-Body join: Spanish heel
- Fingerboard: Ebony
- Machine Heads: Schaller
- Finish: Nitrocellulose, satin gloss
- Bridge/Nut: Bone
Comfortable neck construction with 50mm nut width.
The soundboard is attached using single woodblocks instead of the more usual kerfing/woodstrips in order to achieve a soft, sensitive and balanced tone.
My own first impressions were very positive: Powerful. Balanced. Mellow-toned. Comfortable. It is also very beautiful to look at if you like an understated style.
