|There have been many changes to methods of construction in the development of the classical guitar over the years. For generations classical guitar players have constantly searched for their perfect instrument and as a consequence the modern classical guitars of today continue to evolve. There must always be a place for traditionally made guitars and the sound they produce but there will always be room for more research, experimentation and refinement.
The very best of traditional woods, contemporary materials and modern building methods are used in my range of John Price Concert Guitars.
Utilising both musicianship and cabinet making skills, I take an intuitive approach when designing and building these instruments. My unique approach to the construction of the soundboard and the lattice that supports it greatly enhance the volume, tonal range and flexibility of nuance required in the modern style of guitar.
By coupling this type of soundboard with an arched, braceless back, sustain and projection are also greatly enhanced.
All of these features are complimented by a consistency in the set up of the guitar resulting in an appreciable ease of playing offering the performer a greater scope of musical expression and interpretation.
It has been a pleasure to see my guitars chosen by many of the worlds top concert and recording artists and it continues to be a rewarding challenge in meeting their demands.
