Godin

Description

New for 2017, La Patrie releases the handcrafted Arena thinline series - boasting features and playability that up until now have been unheard of in a nylon string guitar. The Arena’s generous cutaway allows the player to explore the entire radiused fingerboard of its extremely fast and comfortable Mahogany neck. These guitars feature intricate rosettes, custom polished finishes and an innovative double-function truss rod system not generally found in traditional classical guitars.

This model is features Mahogany back and sides with a select pressure-tested Spruce top to ensure the highest levels of stiffness and rigidity along with maximum harmonic vibration. Offered with Godin’s highly praised Q1T preamp, this thinline acoustic/electric nylon is a performer’s dream - at home, on stage, or in the studio.
