Example of Phaedra acoustic guitar
   Phaedra Guitar

 

The Phaedra is a 12 fret 00 style and sized guitar, which gives a beautifully clear and focused sound.

Its 630 mm scale length gives the player a very comfortable playing feel, and the 12th fret body design, gives the guitar that 'sweet spot' bridge position, that gives such a wonderfully clear tone.

Phaedra - The daughter of Minos, who kept the Minotaur.
