Cervantes Milenia Signature Double Body

Today we are featuring the new Milenia Signature Double Body guitar from luthier Alejandro Cervantes. A second generation luthier and exceptional player, Alejandro has an excellent ear for tone, eye for great wood sets and sense for practical design elements.

This guitar features a spruce top with french polish, raised fingerboard extension, side port and double back and sides. The inside of the double back and sides is Palo Escrito commonly refereed to as Mexican rosewood and the outside is an Indian rosewood. The double back and sides stiffens the body to support top movement and increase volume and projection. The sound port on the upper bout also contributes to this cause by allow more air flow inside the guitar and the top to move more freely. I am always amazed at what a difference in sound the player gets as a result of this port. Most of the time the audience gets the best of the sound but this excellent design feature gives a lot back to the player. The raised fingerboard provides the player with enhanced access to the upper registers and really is more comfortable to play when reaching for notes in the 12-14 fret range.

The tone residing in this guitar is impressive. It lots of volume and projection, solid and clear note fundamentals, warm and rich overtones with a hint of a snap and shimmer on the attack. A beautiful piece of work and a feast for the senses this guitar is one you should definitely check out!
