Yes. The classical neck is the width it is because that's a width that works very well for the kind of music that is played on this kind of instrument. How's that for circular logic?Poldy wrote:Are there any disadventages while playing (fingerpick) classical songs on narrow fretboard?
I have two guitars with cutaway and I wish my Sakurai had a cutaway too. Why? Elementary my dear Watson; my slightly arthritic fingers like it.krist wrote:I have no experience with cutaways but I think that classical music must be played at a classical guitar. I am rather onservative by that.
Like I say I have no experience with cutaways: what is the reaon of a cutaway anyway? It's no classical guitar, it's no folk-guitar neither. Waht is it?I know that these instruments are expencive.
So why not invest in a real good classical guitar?
I don't claim to have the complete answer, either. Certainly, the wider neck adds stiffness and better resists bending. Speaking only from a structural point of view, though, a thicker neck would much more efficiently resist bending than a wider one - in the same way that floor joists are installed on edge for maximum strength.kampf wrote:Correct me if i'm wrong as i don't claim to be an expert, but it was my understanding that the wide neck width and size on the traditional CG guitar is that way to prevent the neck from warping producing fret buzz.
