 Classical Guitar Comments:

The 640mm models measure approximately 1/8″ less than the 650mm in all dimensions.

This guitar is beautiful.  Kenny and his staff are choosing some of the prettiest woods I’ve ever seen, while being structurally correct for sonic character.

The  Spruce soundboard almost shimmers she’s so gorgeous.  Her sound, timbre, resonance, and her play are equally spectacular.   The Rosewood is equally beautiful.  Forget losing anything just because she’s a touch smaller.  If anything, the darned guitar is more intense, as if she wants to explode with more power because she’s contained.  Ridiculously good is an apt phrase for the guitar.
