INDIAN ROSEWOOD NOUVEAU NYLON
DETAILS AND PHOTOS
The Nouveau Nylon is a classical hybrid, nylon string guitar designed for a pickup system and stage performance. The model shown has a cutaway, and the neck joins the body at the 14th fret. With an optional dual pickup system installed, it amplifies beautifully for stage performance. The Nouveau Nylon shown on this page has a German Spruce soundboard and it has Indian Rosewood back and sides. The bridge is Indian Rosewood, and the fingerboard on this guitar is made of Ebony, as are the heel cap and head and back plates on the headstock. The binding, endgraft, and rosette are made of flamed curly Koa. This particular Nouveau Nylon has a custom access panel located on the tail end of the body; this provides full access to the dual pickup system. This guitar is ready for the stage.
This guitar was played by Carl Verheyen on the majority of the "UP!" film soundtrack.
