TRUSS ROD
One of the first innovations we introduced was the presence of a truss rod in the neck.
This is common for a steel-string folk guitar, less so for classical guitars.
We see it as more of a guarantee for the neck’s stability. Experience has taught us that not all musicians are so careful with their guitars. The guitar is rarely stored in the right conditions and so can be subject to variations in temperature and humidity,
which both have a strong influence on the wood and in particular, the neck. The presence of a truss rod makes it possible to lessen these effects and if necessary, adjust the curve of the neck to maintain perfect playability.

 

FRETTING
Fretting is a crucial point in the construction of a guitar. This requires great precision and regularity so that the instrument best meets playing requirements. In order to improve playability,
we have chosen frets with rounded ends, which makes movement on the neck much more comfortable.

 

STRINGS
Across the entire Angel Lopez range we favour Savarez strings, a French manufacturer and market leader in classical strings.
