I always have a dillema.
What is your thought on this for solo playing, control vs sound:

A blanca with long sustain “cathedralic” sound. And lesser control.

Or a blanca with shorter sustain, “lesser” sound, and better control.

Ofcourse, sound is subjective, maybe control for the pro’s too, but you get what i mean. (I hope😃)




mrstwinkle -> RE: Sustain or playability (Jan. 31 2022 10:54:54)

Is cathedralic ('concert grade'?) predominantly a feature of the body depth of the guitar?

Depends what you're playing I suspect. Mineras / tarantas usually work better with the sustain IMO.

Realistically, I suspect most guitars if playing in public are going to be massively affected by hall echo, so more control is preferable if live. In a recording studio, bring several guitars...

This is why every flamenco guitarist has two guitars minimum [:D]

A lot of things together, wood, top, weight, plantilla. But in general, a “bigger little heavyer guitar”

You have a Gerundino. Play it near the bridge and you have a great flamenco. Play it near the soundhole and you have a great classical. What more could you ask for?[:D][:D]

Which gig? Blanca for accompaniment, negra for solo. But it doesn’t really matter.

Taking my guitarist hat off - as a listener - non-concert blanca.

Amplification adds boom.

About three years ago I had three guitars at my brother's house showing them to one of his grown grandsons.

My sister-in-law asked me how many guitars I had. When I told her she asked, "Why do you need six guitars?"

I answered, "Well...you don't really need six guitars."

Now I have seven.

I suspect there may be people on the Foro who have more.

It is a no brainer.
