This classical guitar was given to me by my uncle around 1975. It has led a very rought life which includes being used in many experiements while I learned to work on guitars.
The first experiment was can you use light guage electric guitar strings on a cheap nylon classical? Yes, yes you can. They work very well.
Another experiment was to see how well aluminum works as a saddle material. I was very please with the results here too. I changed the angle of the saddle from perfectly square to angled and improved the intonation somewhat.
The fingerboard is plywood and was originally simply stained black. At first I made it a fretless acoustic and that was fun for a while but later I refretted it after covering the fingerboard with some Macassar Ebony veneer.
Classical guitars don't have side dots so I added some maple markers at the 7th & 12th frets.
An ebony nut made with a free scrap from the wood store.
