"Spanish styling blended with a touch of Western influence"

Goodall Guitars has introduced a nylon string Crossover guitar that will satisfy the most discriminating guitar player.

Our Nylon string Crossover models are truly a wonderful blend of steel string playability and classical guitar tone and projection. We styled them to have a beautiful, elegant look, somewhat in-between a steel string and classical; a little Spanish blended with a little Western. A true fine classical instrument has a powerful separation to each note and a brilliant and powerful treble which makes its voice somewhat strident and less satisfying when strummed like a steel string, but our Crossovers have a little more blend, balance, richness and sustain making them suitable for strumming as well as fingerstyle playing with equally satisfying results. There is plenty of clarity on the treble stings though and when pushed they really sing out, giving a wide dynamic range. The bass is very full and resonant, but not overpowering.

 

Goodall Crossover model guitars are produced in one main style:

  • E.I. Rosewood back and sides. Western Red Cedar or Port Orford Cedar top. Rosewood binding.

A wide variety of custom options are also available.
