Do you have some recordings about your 630?

I tried your used 650 (nut50) Torres copy at GSI in Santa Monica, California, USA.

Will you make 630 with 7 strings? When I practice Coste Op.38(for 7 strings' guitar), I am not satisfied 6 strings' guitar...
No, I have no recordings of the 630 guitars I have made. I can make a 7-string with 630 scale with no problem. Delivery some time in the next decade. :lol:

Next decade? What does it mean? Ten years later?

The decade of the 20's starts next year. I was trying to make a joke like we do on New Year's Eve: "Goodnight, see you next year". I can fill orders some time next year depending on when the orders are confirmed.

I have only made five 630 scale guitars but id love to make more! Not as much demand I feel, also smaller market for resale, but I personally like the playability and the smaller body feels very intimate. There does appear to be more shorter scales coming on the market. I made this one back in 2014.
