Almansa’s CSCW series offer a variation on the electro-classical theme designed to appeal to those who are looking for something a little different – possibly an instrument that offers similar playability to, and captures some of the aesthetic of, a folk electro; but with a ‘classical’ build. With this in mind, the fingerboard width is both narrower (47 mm at the nut instead of the usual 51-52 mm) and is slightly cambered.
The CSCWLR is the most modestly priced of the three models, but has the same ease of playability, neat build and attractive aesthetics. Its tone is fine acoustically too, being smooth and responsive. Eletronics are Fishman’s Clasica M.
