Smile Model Doff C (Doff Classic)

We wanted to create an instrument that would be fully match to the wishes of music schools and colleges students, at the same time taking into account the fact of price and quality optimization.
The famous dynasty Ramirez guitar of 1919 was taken as a basis. We used the same acoustic string layout, all necessary dimensions and deck thickness.
It would not be fair to say that our instrument fully repeats the sound of Ramirez’ guitars, there is no wonderland (quite different materials and of course absolutely different level of execution).
However, the instrument has turned out incredibly light and melodious. We considered musicians wishes as well: the thickness and width of the neck, the height of the strings over the neck, the convenience for playing the upper frets and many others details, which at first glance seem to be no significant, but have so strongly affect on the musicians play.
