Hex Classic Series

Classic series

The Classic series is an advanced classical guitar line processed by various new methods to maximize the resonant sound. We only use selected woods that have been dried and managed for a long time, and the thickness of the top wood is made as thin as possible to bring out the rich sound of the overtones.

Craftsmanship

Natural woodworking

Vacuum pressing & natural wood drying combined technology gives you a more solid sound. After the glue penetrates the pores of the wood sufficiently, it is bonded by slowly applying pressure to increase vibration and durability.

※ Although heat-drying and hot-press methods expedite the building process, they cause the adhesives to harden, interfering with the wood’s natural resonant qualities.

Wood drying

Three stages of drying

The wood is dried by natural, thermal and high frequency vacuum drying. In the case of high-frequency vacuum drying, moisture is removed from the inside of the wood, so there is little splitting or distortion coming from drying.

※ Only carefully selected timber that is well dried and seasoned is used.
