All Giuliani classical guitars are hand built using traditional Spanish methods. The model CL-5P Giuliani guitar is constructed with the highest quality mahogany neck, back, and sides, a solid rosewood fingerboard and a solid Canadian cedar top.
Most guitars in this price category are constructed using only laminated woods, but the CL-5P is built with a solid cedar top that gives the instrument unmatched quality and richness of sound that is rare at this price point. Players describe the guitar’s sound as having very strong fundamentals, while retaining partials that give the trebles a bell like quality that is warm and sweet. Scale length is 650mm. The nut and saddle are made of real bone for the highest quality sound and response.
Giuliani guitars are unique in this price category because they are constructed with dual-action truss rods, which provide the ability to adjust the guitar between light, medium or heavy tension string sets. This flexibility in adjustment also reduces the acclimation period when the instrument is moved to different climates. Dual-action truss rods do not need seasonal adjustments, unlike traditional compression rods.
