Hearts of palm. . .
Prenkert Classical Guitar

A bit of the old and a bit of the new. We can always count on Richard Prenkert to make a strong sounding and good looking traditional classical guitar. Here, he adds a few of his own touches to the classic theme. A rosette of end-cut palm wood shows those characteristic round spots which are actually cross sectional views of the incredibly long hollow tubes that run up through the tree's trunk. Modern gears and bridge design complete the "updated" package. This one has a spruce top, and a characteristically brilliant tone.
