The X20 Nylon is a very non-traditional nylon acoustic guitar which would feel better to a regular acoustic player and sits in between the classical and steel-string world. It has a really big voice, and with the modified lattice braced top we developed (a key, unique feature on the X20 Nylon) it has a huge bottom end, but still has good treble notes.
Our X20 Nylon has its own unique tone and the carbon fibre helps on the treble side that sometimes gets lost on nylon strings. It has a 1 7/8″ inch neck with a fairly slim profile and a 16″ radius so it feels really familiar to a regular acoustic guitar player. A standard classical guitar normally has a completely flat fretboard and a chunkier neck.
To build the X20 Nylon’s unique headstock we take 60 thin carbon fibre sheets, layer them to make a solid block and cure it. After that we cut out the shape of the headstock and carve the end product by hand in a very time-consuming process.
