Marta | Classical Model

Classical Model : “Marta”

Imagine a beautiful woman with class and elegance – features that can only be appreciated as you approach her and get a closer look. She has a power and inner strength that makes her capable of anything, but her humility does not allow even her to know.

I’ve just described the sound of the “Marta” model and the woman it is named after – my mother. These photos show a Spanish Cedar top, with Indian Rosewood sides/back and binding, African Ebony bridge/fingerboard, and Honduras mahogany neck with Ebony insert (all solid). This model is available in different wood combinations, but it is the inner bracing and set-up that distinguish this model. It utilizes a fan bracing style taught to me by my father that is used on many of the classical guitars he built.

I have played with lots of different guitars and grew up in a family of Greek musicians. The one thing I noticed immediately with Delgado guitars is that It had an authentic spirit. I got excited again for the first time in years to hold and play a guitar. The love put into the instruments built gives me the feeling that it has a heartbeat of It’s own. I look forward to writing my songs through it.

I decided to return to the guitar at age 56 after recovering from a heart transplant. I wanted a single instrument that would last a life time. What I received from Manuel was a work of art that has a beautiful voice and a soul as well.
