Models: "Fernandez Valencia", R.Fernandez 40, R.Fernandez 40-4864, R. Fernandez 70, R.Fernandez 70-4864Cutaway
These Spanish guitars are upgraded models of various Esteve Guitars designs which have evolved in response to my suggestions over many years. They feature deluxe tuners, real bone saddles and nut, plastic string guard below the bridge, my choice of soundboard bracing, straight forward ornamentations, good materials, and custom fret works and set-up by me (Ron Fernandez). These guitars have been well received by many players and are a good value for a well built Spanish guitar.
As I have entered into semi-retirement I have none few of these models left in stock.

NARROW NUT/SHORT SCALE. The R.Fernandez 40-4864
is the same as the R.Fernandez 40 but has a 48mm nut width and 640mm
scale. This model is intended to be an instrument for people with
smaller hands or for steel string guitar players who want to cross over
to a nylon string guitar. Since they are just slightly smaller they can
be tuned to standard guitar pitch. At 48mm the nut is a little over
1/8" smaller than a standard classical guitar and with a 640mm scale
the scale is about 3/8" shorter--these differences are enough to make a
difference for some people but not too small to prevent the average
person from playing them. The list price for the R.Fernandez 40-4864
was $695. SOLD No more stock (Jan 2017)
The R.Fernandez 70
has solid western red cedar sound board, solid Indian rosewood back and
sides, ebony fingrboard, rosewood bridge with string block inlay, 5
strut Spanish fan bracing, deluxe real wood rosette, real wood binding,
real bone saddle and nut, deluxe tuners. 52mm nut width, 650mm scale,
380mm lower bout, 295mm upper bout, 105mm body depth, 490mm body
length. Sold Out, no more stock.

Below is a photo of the clear plastic string guard I put on my R.Fernandez models. It protects the face of the guitar from the damage of string ends and, hopefully, from the damage caused by breaking strings.
Please look at other Esteve, Juan Hernandez and Manuel Adalid models which are on my website.
