The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

DK Cleopatra Acoustic Steel String, 2017

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Dmitry Kulakov has brought us one of his newer creations, the DK Cleopatra model featuring his Fibonacci body shape, Sitka Spruce top and Amazon Rosewood for the sides and back.

New guitar designs are relatively easy to come up with, but what’s much more difficult is having that design work as a functional and good sounding instrument. The DK Cleopatra succeeds in these regards, resulting in an attractive and visually striking and rather good sounding instrument.

The DK Cleopatra uses a modified mini-jumbo body design, the ‘Fibonacci’, with Sitka Spruce top and Amazon Rosewood for the sides and a mix of that wood and Flame Maple for the back and other body pieces. The internal bracing was developed specifically for these instruments.  The bass side lower bout has a slotted port,  delivering part of the guitar’s tone to the player. 

The DK Cleopatra neck with its special sliding neck joint is Flamed Maple with Ebony used for the fingerboard, bridge, and binding.  The backstrap, the layer on the back of the head, is Amazon Rosewood.   The finish is a special oil compound, imposing the minimum load on the guitar’s vibration.  Tuners are Gotoh models.  

Follow the link under this text to hear an audio sample of this very interesting, well built guitar. 

A TKL mini Jumbo case is included.

Here is what the builder has to say about the DK Cleopatra:

“Meet Cleopatra. A combination of simplicity and elegance.
Besides the overall design and wood choice, this guitar has two conceptually new features:
– The pin-less bridge.
– New bracing pattern reinforcing the center portion of the top and leaving more free-to-vibrate space off the sides.
As the result, we have very pleasant warm sound, which is not too bright but giving a great level of details and harmonics, while presenting long sustain and fairly deep bass.”
