Following a meeting and some discussions with Paul Fischer, I started to experiment with a Double Top concert guitar, using Nomex as the core. 

I have been offering this type of guitar for about a year now once I was happy with the design. So far the guitar has been very well received. 
 
The guitar is with a cedar front and 5 braces and closing bar. It has a very strong developed sound which is very Spanish in nature. The guitar has good sustain and volume. It is quite a powerful guitar. 
 
This guitar is built with double laminated sides, the inner layer being either cypress, pear or rosewood. These stiffer sides help support the top and allow more energy from the strings to transfer to the top. 
 

 I build the guitars by hand using fairly traditional methods and select all the materials for each guitar with a view to achieving the best tone for each one, looking for a wide palette of tone colours and an even balance between the bass and treble.
