Luciano Maggi Classical Guitar 2016b Lattice Spruce CSA

Comments:

This is another very interesting guitar.  She is classified as a Shaula Classical with Lattice bracing by Luciano (see label photo).  The internals are amazing (see photos).  The guitar is quick, loud, and musical, a monster in every regard.  She is lattice braced, with a sound port by the bass side and an internal diaphragm, all lending itself to the incredible power of this guitar.  The woods are equally gorgeous, using the finest Spruce board from the Stradivari region of Italy and beautifully figured CSA Rosewood.  This guitar is the sister to the first guitar, tuned slightly differently, with a real gorgeous figure to the CSA RW.

The guitar is seriously worked on the inside.  I cannot say enough.  There is bracing, X patterns, air flow holes in the soundbars, bracing on the back, and so on.  It’s a marvel to look at the inside of this guitar.  I suppose he knows what he’s doing simply because the guitar delivers.  Extraordinary is the word.

The price includes an Italian built HSC and Express Shipping to the 50US

From the owner, who knows Luciano well, ”

The purpose of the diaphragm is to allow the air column flow through the sound port to be reversed in direction in respect to the sound hole flow.
In other words, when the air is going into the sound hole, it is expelled from the sound port and vice versa.
This prevents the air flow to fight against itself as it is the case in a traditional single hole guitar and it allows for much greater dynamics without the compression effect typical of when a guitar is being pushed to its limits.
It also allows the sound wave to be ‘formed outside of the guitar’. What I mean by that is that the air flow is almost circulating ‘through’ the guitar through the two holes, completing the circle outside of the guitar, where the audience is. The sound resulting is therefore perceived as ‘right there’ and coming from all around by the audience, rather than boxy as sometimes is the case even with traditional concert guitars.

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks.

MP3 Audio – 180420-maggi-2016b – awesome guitar!  Very powerful, very musical, just a big ole WOW.  Guitar made me laugh it’s so good.  This is right in line with all of the Italian luthiers I met in Rome, and Maggi is sitting right here, blowing me away.  Great guitar.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
