Santos Martinez Preludio Cutaway Electro-Classic Guitar


High quality nylon strung classical guitars, combine power and sound characteristics, with exceptional playability and performance.  

It’s in this field that the Santos Martinez skilled craftsmen excel, they are experts in the art of making outstanding nylon strung classical and electro-classical guitars, highly respected by amateur, semi-pros and professional players around the world for their playability, visual appeal and exceptional tonal qualities.  

The Santos Martinez Preludio Single Cutaway Electro-Classic features a premium grade solid spruce top and with the back and sides crafted from selected mahogany, the Preludio is a fine example. 

Fine illustrations of this respected company’s attention to detail include, dark wood body bindings, a capped heal, detailed rosette inlay, pau ferro fingerboard, profile-contoured capped headstock with engraved SM logo, maple inlay and gold-plated machine heads with white pearl buttons.   

Whilst the Preludio electro-classic is visually stunning, it’s from the choice of these finest tonewoods that this gorgeous instrument delivers excellent bass, mid-range and treble response.  

Paired with a body of figured mahogany, itself renowned for its ability to add warmth, punch and sustain, solid spruce is the perfect tonewood choice for the Preludio electro-classic’s soundboard. Lighter in colour, its bright percussive sound adds sparkle, and a fine choice for both classical and flamenco players who want to reach up and over castanets and stomping heels.  

Superb note clarity is notably apparent when playing arpeggio style chords or indeed, the more aggressive and typical rasgueado, Spanish and flamenco fast finger strumming techniques. 

The Preludio electro-classic’s vibrant and exceptional sustaining qualities are accurately delivered onward to amplifiers, desks, or recording equipment via Fishman’s ever popular Clasica II preamp with Volume, Bass, Treble and Phase controls, and a built-in Tuner. 

The inlaid bridge, precision cut, bone nut and saddle also contribute to the percussive tone, which makes this fine classic guitar ideal for electric and steel-strung guitarists making the move to classical. 

With a gleaming high gloss finish, the Santos Martinez Single Cutaway Preludio Electro-Classic is a joy to play at home, in the studio or in concert, performing way beyond its price point.
