I am about to buy myself a new classical. I have been looking at a more modern styling, 48mm nut, body join at the 14th etc.
So far I have been looking at the Yamaha NTX range and an Ortega Opal NY AGB
Does anyone have any recommendations or anything else to mention that might be worth checking out?
I have no specific requirements, I just want a good classical. I am happy with traditional and variations, cutaways etc.
The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a
whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct
term for the musical effect it produces. In standard usage, tremolo is a
rapid fluctuation of the volume of a note, while vibrato is a
fluctuation in pitch. The origin of this nonstandard usage of the term
by electric guitarists is attributed to Leo Fender, who also used the
term “vibrato” to refer to what is really a tremolo effect.
