Nomex is a material which was originally developed as a fibre for use in flame-resistant fabrics but which also has advantageous properties in certain acoustic applications. In its 'honeycomb' form it has recently been adopted by luthiers in guitar construction as a modern innovation, as with this Raimundo guitar. The result is an instrument that is cosmetically the same as traditional solid-top instrument with a very good tone, but one of a slightly different character.
The 149nx has a timbre that is open, smooth and well-balanced, with a colour that becomes brighter as the guitar is played.
What can I say? The guitar has arrived and is everything I expected it to be. Really it is hard to imagine how these guitars can be improved on but no doubt they do. Maybe next year I'll go in for his double top, it must be awesome! Thanks again.
