Description
The Collection QI Classical Guitar from La Patrie has a solid cedar top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, rosewood bridge with compensated saddle, 2-tone gold and black "lyra" style tuners with buttons, Quantum I Electronics, and a semi-gloss satin finish.

The Collection combines Indian rosewood back and sides—in this case the back is solid rosewood—with a luthier-grade solid cedar top and high gloss lacquer finish. Built by our most experienced luthiers in the Godin acoustic studio. This guitar is top-of-the-line in every respect. The beautifully understated appearance is perfectly complimented by the Collection's exquisite sound and feel.

800 Year Old Trees
All La Patrie guitars feature solid cedar tops. The wood used in these tops can be found only in cedar trees that have an average age of about 800 years. The tight, straight grain in this wood makes it strong in the direction of the string tension while at the same time flexible across the grain lines. It is this combination of rigidity and flexibility that give the top its resonance. The vibration of the guitar top is the most crucial element of the sound.

Lacquer Finish

La Patrie guitars are finished with a special lacquer formula. This finish is light enough to allow the wood to breath and vibrate freely. The tops resonating capacity actually improves as the guitar is played over an extended period of time. This gradual improvement in the response of the top is often referred to as "aging". Poly finishes inhibit top vibration and are therefore never used on La Patrie guitars. Many other guitars use a thick plastic finish that smothers top vibration and prevents the benefits of aging.

Classics that are comfortable to play
Classical guitars of the past have typically been made with thick neck dimensions, while this promoted a certain amount of neck stability, it often made certain playing aspects difficult to execute. It is for this reason that special attention was directed to the neck design of the La Patrie guitars. Neck width and string spacing conform to classical standards, but a new truss rod system allows the profile of the neck to be reduced producing a neck of extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability. The La Patrie necks are carved from Honduras mahogany. All La Patrie models feature a rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
