Yamaha NTX900FM

Blonde, 2014

This is my Nylon string guitar. I use it for Latin music and for Leonard Cohen pieces. It is strung with a low A string. The craftsmanship on these Chinese made instruments is almost flawless since the quality control and design is Japanese. Maple back and sides with a spruce top. It has a small body with oval rosette and the sides are also not very deep making it not susceptible to feedback. I also have the special case for this body size. I amplify it through a Mooer Radar Cab simulator loaded with the sound of a Cordoba Hauser guitar miked though a Neumann microphone. I use an A-string that is an ocatve lower on this guitar.
