Plywood products are a very successful option in relation to the final result and price for the construction of our classic guitars, all products are made of natural veneer and are endowed with great beauty. Although solid products offer more musical quality than veneer, they reduce working time, the price is also cheaper and the visual finish is exactly the same.
The classic guitar plywood sides maintains the beauty of the grain and many of the acoustic properties of solid wood, they are also the most economical option to manufacture our guitar. In Maderas Barber we have different plywood, from classic woods such as Maple to the beautiful Ziricote, all of them allow us to build a quality and beauty guitar. All the glue used in our veneer processes is extensive of formaldehyde.
All backs are composed of 3 parts; the outer faces, the traverse and the inner face, in these backs no glue with formaldehyde has been used. Classic guitar plywood backs are a very interesting option due to the value for money. In Maderas Baber we have different plywood of different tones, densities and origins such as Maple, Indian Rosewood, Sapele or Ziricote. All our backs are united and don’t need drying, so the manufacturing process is considerably reduced.
European spruce wood has been the most widely used option in the history of the manufacture of the guitar tops. The European spruce tops are made up of spruce; the outer face has a central calabó reinforcement and the inner face has a thickness of 2.4 mm. All our covers are joined and don’t need drying, so the manufacturing process is considerably reduced; in addition, building a guitar with plywood tops is one of the best options in terms of value for money.
Curved sheet reinforcements are widely used to give consistency to our soundboard and reinforce our instrument giving it more resistance. In Maderas Barber we offer reinforcements of okume and poplar, woods that fit perfectly to the curvature of the sides and that their properties make them perfect for the function of strengthening the instrument inside.
