La Patrie Hybrid CW Nylon String Classical Acoustic/Electric Guitar, B-Band Crescent, Light Burst W/Case

There is a small quiet village in the eastern townships of Quebec that has been the backbone of guitar building in Canada for over 30 years. This village of guitar builders is dedicated to the art & tradition of hand crafting guitars. They’re meticulous in every aspect of building these guitars, which leads them towards the creation of an exceptional instrument that they themselves can be proud to name after the very place they are from. This is the village of LaPatrie… and these are their guitars.

 

The LaPatrie series of classical nylon string acoustic guitars is comprised of seven models: The Motif, Etude, Concert, Concert CW, Presentation, Collection and Hybrid CW. All LaPatrie guitars are crafted from top quality tone woods to produce instruments of exceptional resonance and structural integrity.

 

All LaPatrie guitars feature select pressure tested solid cedar tops. Graded and tested for their excellence and structural integrity, this method of pressure testing each solid top ensures the highest levels of stiffness and rigidity along with maximum harmonic vibration. This benefits the overall tone, projection and resonance of these finely crafted instruments. The wood used in these tops can be found only in previously fallen cedar trees that have an average age of about 800 years. Characteristically speaking, this wood features a tight straight grain, which produces greater rigidity while at the same time is flexible across the grain lines. LaPatrie guitars also feature a Custom Polished finish, which is reminiscent of the French polish of the 19th Century. This Custom Polished Finish, as opposed to "thick" polyester finishes, allows the top not only to be protected but also to breathe and vibrate freely allowing the effective and very important “aging” process to take its course. This “aging” process means that every LaPatrie acoustic guitar will actually sound better and better the more it’s played over time.

 

The necks on LaPatrie guitars are carved from Honduras mahogany and feature an innovative double-function truss rod system not generally found in traditional classical guitars. This system allows the profile of the neck to be reduced producing a neck of extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability. Each LaPatrie nylon string guitar is finished off with an intricate rosette, cream binding, rosewood fingerboard and bridge as well as Tusq nuts and fully compensated saddles by Graphtech

 

Hybrid CW Light Burst

The Hybrid CW is the nylon stringed guitar for the modern player who, like most of us, is not necessarily a classical guitarist. As the name suggests, the Hybrid is certainly a guitar from mixed origins derived from the traditional side of nylon stringed guitars and the desire to meet the needs of the modern player with its cutaway body shape, radiused fingerboard and onboard electronics.
