A full size body with a responsive touch and great dynamic range.

The Etude is the most popular model in the La Patrie lineup. The Etudes specifications match those of the Motif (our sku# 513431) but with a full size body. Incredibly responsive thanks to the feather-light Custom Polished finish, this guitar features great dynamic range along with the harmonically rich sound that you usually find in a guitar several times the price.

Pressure tested top
All LaPatrie guitars feature select pressure tested solid cedar tops. Graded and tested for their excellence and structural integrity, this method of pressure testing each solid top ensures the highest levels of stiffness and rigidity along with maximum harmonic vibration. This benefits the overall tone, projection and resonance of these finely crafted instruments.

800 year-old wood
The wood used in these tops can be found only in previously fallen cedar trees that have an average age of about 800 years. Characteristically speaking, this wood features a tight straight grain, which produces greater rigidity while at the same time is flexible across the grain lines.

Custom polished finish
LaPatrie guitars also feature a Custom Polished finish, which is reminiscent of the French polish of the 19th Century. This Custom Polished Finish, as opposed to "thick" polyester finishes, allows the top not only to be protected but also to breathe and vibrate freely allowing the effective and very important "aging" process to take its course. This "aging" process means that every LaPatrie acoustic guitar will actually sound better and better the more it's played over time.

Carved neck
The necks on LaPatrie guitars are carved from Honduras mahogany and feature an innovative double-function truss rod system not generally found in traditional classical guitars. This system allows the profile of the neck to be reduced producing a neck of extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability. Each LaPatrie nylon string guitar is finished off with an intricate rosette, cream binding, rosewood fingerboard and bridge as well as Tusq nuts and fully compensated saddles by Graphtech. Case sold separately.

  • great guitar - great price - great sound - made in Canada

    As reviewed by Alex on 12/27/2014

    This guitar is designed to be playable and to sound great without the gadgets, like inlays and other eye pleasing gizmos. It is a workhorse that is plain, but can deliver. The finish of the guitar is a bit rough, but when you want to create an affordable guitar you have to make compromises. LaPatrie has found a great way to save costs at the right places. It delivers a great playing instrument that will surpass way more expensive instruments. Where it counts this instrument shines; great tuning heads, excellent on board tuner and pickup, great pitch accuracy, wonderful sustain.
