Series 430

Introducing the modern nylon string guitar; a blend of contemporary styling, classical tone and excellent playability.

The Valencia Series 430 Auditorium guitar represents a step change in the evolution of the nylon string guitar, bringing you the best of two playing worlds. Its larger body shape delivers more volume and better midrange than a traditional classical guitar whilst the curved radius fingerboard gives players an instrument with the feel and playability of an acoustic guitar.
Players will appreciate the distinctive tonal flavors of a nylon string guitar coupled with a sleek, ultra-playable neck and styling that steel string acoustic guitars are known for.
The Select Sitka Spruce top provides great clarity and detail whilst the Nato back and sides balance the tone by adding warmth and projection. The Mahogany neck with two-way truss rod topped with a amara ebony fingerboard provides for smooth, effortless playing feel.

If you’ve been looking for a contemporary looking, fast playing and rich sounding nylon-string guitar then the VA434 is definitely for you!
