The La Patrie Etude features a stunning select pressure tested solid cedar top. The manufacturing process of pressure testing each solid top ensures they have the highest levels of stiffness and rigidity, along with maximum harmonic vibration. This process is becoming more and more popular with guitar manufacturing as it benefits the overall tone, projection, and resonance of a guitar. It is this combination of quality, rigidity, and flexibility that gives the top its incredible resonance and stunning appearance.
The La Patrie Guitar is also environmentally friendly, as the wood used for the top is found only in Cedar trees that have previously fallen. Cedar is well known for its distinctive straight grain and red-brown tones, as well as being a particular common choice for finger-style players.

Custom Polish for a Custom Appearance
Like all guitars from La Patrie, the Etude series features a stunning custom polished finish inspired by the appearance of French polish of the 19th Century. Rather than applying a thick coat of polish like standard classical guitars, the La Patrie's custom finish is thinner to allow the wood to breathe and vibrate freely, while also offering plenty of protection from the elements. This type of finish also delivers a better sound the older it gets, making it a worthwhile investment.

Innovative Double Function Truss Rod
The Etude Guitar is also equipped with an innovative double-function truss rod system within its mahogany neck. Truss rods are never normally featured on classical guitars, having always been made with thick neck dimensions, yet its function on the La Parie Acoustic allows for a slimmer neck profile. This clever truss rod system offers extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability.

Attention to Detail
A beautiful guitar wouldn't be complete without the final touches. The La Patrie Etude is nicely finished off with an intricate rosette, cream binding, and rosewood bridge, as well as a cream Tusq nut and a fully compensated saddle by Graphtech.
