As a classically trained musician, James Goodall has a deep affection for the classical guitar. In 1988 James drew upon his renowned understanding of guitar building techniques, and with consideration for a Northern European tonal and visual concept, created the Classical model.
James Goodall has created his own bracing design in order to achieve a classical build that is richly lyrical, exceedingly powerful, and brilliant in timbre quality. The tonal brilliance is evident in this particular pre-owned classical which sports a mastergrade port oxford cedar top and palo escrito rosewood back and sides. The consigned guitar has been kept in immaculate condition and will certainly delight its new owner.
