Almedina is a light guitar, flexible, sensitive, and quick to respond to even the lightest touch, yielding to the hands of the performer, who can therefore become one with the instrument.
Almedina Limited Edition has the same features of the Almedina series, but it's a step towards completeness of my grand concert instrument.

The Almedina is a hand-made instrument inspired by the guitars of the great Spanish tradition that were produced up to the Second World War, and as such it has all the physical and musical characteristics of those instruments:
Almedina LE (Limited Edition) is part of the Almedina project, but it's midway between the standard Almedina and my grand concert guitars.
It is made entirely by hand according the canons of the most classical tradition of guitar making. As for the choice of materials, for the Almedina LE, woods that are slightly less traditional for a classical guitar are proposed; in addition to the usual spruce for the soundboard and Spanish cedar for the neck, we find precious Amaranth (Peltogyne Densiflora) for the back and sides and a sumptuous flamed maple for the fingerboard.
The choice of woods is determined wholly by acoustic factors, as are the ‘ingredients’ employed in construction. The only glue used in assembling the entire instrument, for example, is the traditional hide glue – the glue of choice for hand-made instruments – while the varnish is shellac, another natural material indispensable to the construction of musical instruments.
