Savage Classical Guitar Model 10 Cedar EIRW 640mm


My own personal models have just arrived after years, and then recently, months of planning and discussions.  A culmination of my own expertise, experience and what I love most about classical guitars, their sound, feel and expressiveness.  I have these guitars built by Manuel Adalid in Valencia Spain.  Built in the Madrid Style, traditional in all regards, focused, balanced, powerful and full-voiced, these guitars are quite valuable as compared to their listed price.  All solid woods, built to Manuel’s highest standard, all guitars go thru me and my final setup.  I have refined the bracing style as well as the headstock and rosette/purflings to match what I love in a classical guitar.  Refined, elegant and a touch of wildness.

This is the 2nd iteration of my personal model.  The refinement to a great classical guitar are a thing of happiness for me and my ability to offer you a superior guitar at an accessible price point.  I have contracted Manuel to build these guitars for me in a 650mm and 640mm scale.  This listing is for the 640mm smaller scale classical guitar version.

The 640mm scale length guitar comes off as quite the Torres guitar, in terms of looks, body type and sound.  A gorgeous silky tone with excellent projection, evidencing sweet musical expression.  Smaller bodied, but not smaller voiced.

My Savage Classical Guitar Model 5 will be discontinued, as I feel it better to offer 1 distinct model, in 640mm and 650mm, built to my standards.  Simply, a great Spanish guitar in the Madrid style, for a price less than $3K, built directly in Spain by Spanish Luthiers!  As in, yes sir!

  • Players with shorter hands and/or fingers should seriously consider the 640mm.
    • My fitting sessions with numerous players over the years has proven that this slightly smaller scale is simply more comfortable for the majority of players, while sacrificing nothing in terms of tone and volume. The difference is the length of the neck, the width of the nut at 48-51mm and the proportional fretting of the instrument.
      • The 650mm is suitable for those players whose spread between thumb and pinky is 9″ or greater.

      • You can also measure your pinky tip to index finger tip spread comfortably.  You should be at 6.5″-7″ on this measurement – you would adjust 1″ less for each scale length lower.

  • The 640mm (this available version) is suitable for those players whose spread between thumb and pinky is 8″-9″

    Of course, these are generalizations, but I do find that most players fit these standards.

    These guitars are setup by me personally, for lower action to the point of not making noise.  This guitar is set right now at 3.5mm and 2.9mm bass and treble side at 12th fret open.

All 640mm guitars will come with a Eastman Fiberglass HSC in various colors.  See photos.



Photos and media are updated as the guitars were received June 25, 2023 – all of them gorgeous.

Please note that photos can be enlarged.  Right click any photo in the larger window, select “Open Image in New TAB” (if you’re using Chrome.  Any other browser has similar options).  Look at the other TAB and you will be able to enlarge via the magnifying glass.  Simply click the image and she will double in size for your convenience.

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 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. Rich

MP3 Audio – 160825-scg-10-cedar – an off the cuff recording – I play some of Valerie’s Air and discuss the guitar at some length.  She’s really nice – Ramirez 1A type of feel and sound but with a 650mm scale length.  Very nice – the book is available here if you’re interested

Please NOTE that photos of all “production guitars” are stock photos, taken randomly for our numerous selection of guitars, whether they be from Kenny Hill – Esteve – Adalid or others.  It is virtually impossible and arduous to photograph each of our available production guitars.  I am, however, happy to take a few photos for you of any particular guitar with which your are interested.

Also, measurements of string spacing and nut width are also approximate, as they can be “slightly” different from guitar to guitar.  They may be factory made (meaning down the line factory) but humans are still doing much of this work and it is NOT an exact science.

Handcrafted instruments are photographed and listed individually, usually identified by a serial number, date and or some other combination.
