Couple a well seasoned Western red cedar soundboard with some fined grained, old growth Indian rosewood and you have a classy guitar. This instrument has my larger plantilla with an elevated fingerboard. Under the hood, La Stravaganza has a seven fan braced, three open harmonic bar strutting system. This tried and true method produces a guitar that just plain works.

I rounded out the instrument with tasteful marquetry and some wonderful flamed koa bindings.
