Direct descendents of the original Torres guitars the GC70, GC60 and GC50 series guitars are all individually crafted by the hands of our master craftsmen. Starting with materials, only the best woods are hand-selected by our craftsmen who will then take up to six months to give life to an instrument of unparalleled quality and performance. A choice of solid cedar top, for a warm sweet tone, and solid spruce top, for a clear, rich resonance is available for the discerning player. All instruments feature gold plated keys, fine purling, delicate inlays and deep natural finishes. The top, sides and back on the GC70 and GC70C are luxuriously hand finished with an all natural shellac using a traditional process that takes up to three months to complete. Instruments of the highest quality created with the unending dedication and pride of our master craftsmen.
BRIDGE AND SADDLE.
The thickness of the third string in a nylon set tends to limit its movement at the bridge and nut causing it to behave as if it were shorter than the other strings. Thus notes on the third string tend to be slightly sharper than the rest. Yamaha's solution to eliminate this common intonation problem is with a special offset step cut into the saddle at the third string, accurately compensating for the deviation in pitch and providing perfect intonation over the instruments entire range.
Next to the woods themselves, the most critical factor affecting the instruments final sound is the bracing of the guitar top. Based on a pattern proposed by Torres in the 80's, Yamaha has refined and improved on this design to ensure optimum tone and volume with modern strings and playing techniques.
A guitar's finish has a very real effect on its sound. A fine guitar, with a properly applied finish, will continue to sound better as time goes on.
