This 2009 replica of a Santos Hernandez by Tomas Delgado weighs in at a whopping 2.18lbs! At such a lightweight, the guitar immediately surprises everyone with the sheer amount of volume she produces. This Santos replica has such a simple elegance to it. When you look closely, you see the distinct elements that make the guitar unique. The headstock with its curved features and a lateral grain vignette respectfully crown the guitar. The tuners are traditional looking pegs with a modern twist. Still held in by friction, the peg has encased within it a machine head! You no longer have to continually push the peg in as you tune. Just turn like a regular machine head.
The character of tension is rewarding for a players left and right hand. Completely French polished, the guitar is able to resonate with even greater freedom compared to one that is lacquered. The tight and even grain of the German spruce top is very eye clean and even. This quality allows the most beautiful adornment of this guitar to stand out, the rosette. An almost three dimensional swirl pattern cradles the sound hole. The colors are kept simple but bold allowing the highest contrast.
