Overview: Alfredo Velazquez endows his classical guitars with both the elegant tonal qualities for which his father’s guitars are revered and the extended dynamic range sought by many contemporary performing artists. He does this by honoring and preserving traditional Velazquez tonal aesthetics while selectively introducing a few modern construction methods. Alfredo Velazquez’s classic guitars are sought world wide for their deep, soulful, unusually pure tonal beauty, strong woody fundamental tones, excellent balance up and down and across the fingerboard, easy playability, beautiful physical symmetry, and superb materials and workmanship.
