Raimundo 646E Shallow Body Flamenco Electro
Back and Sides Solid Cypress
Width at nut 51.5mm
Scale length 65 cm
A solid cypress instrument with low action and fitted golpe plates makes this an ideal instrument for players requiring a brighter or flamenco type of tone. It is a cutaway electro with the excellent Fishman Prefix Pro Blend electronics that incorporate both an Acoustic Matrix pick up underneath the saddle in the bridge and microphone inside the body. These can be balanced. The sound is bright with an excellent tone. Volume is a little less, due to the decrease in body depth, but the tone is fine and electronically the possibilty of feedback is reduced.
A note to say how pleased I am with the Raimundo 128. It came with us for a week's holiday to Suffolk and I have been getting to know it. The playing has been coming back to me after a long interval; the guitar is very responsive with a warm singing tone.
