What we say:
Finlayson guitars is a new and exciting range of superb acoustic guitars, designed in collaboration with esteemed luthier Billy Finlayson and industry titan Robert Godin of Godin guitars.
This range of guitars, designed in Scotland and handcrafted in La Patrie, Canada, is a WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Godin do not make guitars for anybody else so this unique collaboration is unprecedented and extremely special.
The Finlayson range is populated with a range of steel and nylon string acoustic guitars in 3 different series: the 5, 50 & 100 series. All models feature solid tops and the 50 & 100 series are made of completely solid timbers, all sourced for North American forests.
Part of the reason that Finlayson guitars sound so good is the use of Adirondack Spruce for the inner bracing. Bracing forms and shapes much of the guitar’s voice & projection so using Adirondack Spruce, which is the strongest and lightest species of Spruce, is a massively important part of the process.
The Finlayson guitars range has been a long time in the making: exhaustive efforts have been made to ensure that playability, sound quality, beauty and value have all been met to a stringently high standard. Every guitarist looking for a quality electro acoustic needs to try out this incredible new range: Finlayson guitars set the standard.
This unique and inspired guitar is a parlour sized nylon string classical guitar! We fell in love with this as soon as we saw it: it is such a simple and ingenious idea to use the lute-like parlour shape with the otherwise Spanish-influenced classical guitar style. This gives the 00-5NE a unique identity that is almost baroque!
Sonically, the small body projects extremely well: this is one loud guitar! We recommend this for anyone interested in experimenting with nylon strings: the size makes it eminently playable and the solid Cedar top helps warm up the bold and complex tone. This guitar has a really addictive, playable quality!
The Mahogany neck is topped with a Rosewood fingerboard that has a traditionally wider nut for more space between the strings. The 00-5NE is then finished with a semi-gloss polish that beautifies simply and elegantly.
We think this guitar is a real gem: play one for yourself to see what we mean!
