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.
I have just received my Almansa 461. My first impression was Wow! ... It has been nice doing business with you. Thank you. I will definitely recommending your store to people here in this side of the world. First class all the way.
