What our customers say about us

Outstanding customer service. My multiple questions and concerns (this was my first online classical guitar purchase) were all addressed in a timely fashion by a friendly and knowledgeable professional. The salesperson, staff member Manuel Luchena even went to the extra effort to contact the luthier directly in order to answer one of the questions I had about the guitar. The number of guitar images, as well as the image quality of the guitar photos of the guitars, is superior to the other online classical guitar stores that I looked at. I am extremely happy with the guitar I purchased and would definitely purchase another guitar from Siccas Guitars if the need arises.

The guitar

The guitar has been one of the most popular musical instruments for many years. Whether it is an acoustic or electronic musical instrument, whether it is quiet or loud, whether at home or on stage, it can be used as a solo or accompanying instrument. It is as versatile as other instruments. When it comes to musical taste, there may be no style that cannot be achieved on the guitar. Of course, there is a correspondingly large selection of suitable guitars in every price range. There is a fundamental difference between concert guitar, acoustic guitar, and electric guitar. The advantage of a concert guitar with soft nylon strings is that your fingers are not stressed as much when pressing the strings as when playing steel-string guitars. In addition, the fingerboard on classical guitars is wider, so that it is initially easier to hold and there is no risk of accidentally damping the freely vibrating strings with your fingers. The classical guitar sound is soft, very light, and very pleasant to play, especially for beginners. Therefore it is recommended for most people to learn to play the guitar with a classical guitar. Of course, this does not apply to everyone. If you only want to play blues or folk songs on a Western guitar or rock music or metal on an electric guitar, what good is that then? Frustrating years of practicing on a guitar that you don’t really want to play – the motivation passes quickly, practicing is no fun, the dream of making music is quickly over. Therefore you should ask yourself what kind of music you want to make at the beginning. Don’t worry: After a short time, your fingers will get used to the steel strings of acoustic guitars. So if you know what kind of music you want to play in the long run, you will soon know which guitar to buy. At Siccas Guitars we stock one of the largest selections of classical guitars in Europe. Whether you are looking to buy your first guitar or the exceptional instrument of your dreams, we can help you find your dream guitar.

The classical guitar

The classical guitar, the concert guitar or the Spanish guitar are the same instruments. However, classical guitars are covered with nylon strings, while acoustic or acoustic guitars are covered with steel strings. Antonio de Torres (1817-1892), is considered the pioneer of modern guitar making. His instruments became the starting point for the development of classical guitars in the 19th and 20th centuries. The revolutionary significance of Antonio de Torres’ guitars is due to their constructional features. The body has a larger volume and thus more projection power. Although Torres’ guitars are larger, he kept the weight of his guitars as low as possible. In places, his guitars have 2.5mm wall thickness on the body. To account for the fact that the top has to withstand string tension despite its lightweight and thinness, he used a fan brace instead of the previous horizontal braces. This strengthens the soundboard and distributes the vibration over the entire surface. The scale, which is the length of the freely vibrating string, is usually set at 65 cm. Torres widened the fingerboard to give more room to the fingers of his left hand. To tune the guitar, he used a more accessible action instead of wooden pegs. The classical guitar is mainly used in classical music (especially chamber music) and folk music, Latin American music, and flamenco dance.

Classical guitar or acoustic guitar?

Those who love to play the guitar will find a wide range of classical guitars with nylon strings as well as modern acoustic guitars with steel strings at Siccas Guitars. Classical guitars are characterized by flat and wide fingerboards that produce warm and soft classical sounds and flamenco sounds when moved with the fingers, while acoustic guitars can be played with fingers or picks. The sound is therefore clear and powerful and is rich in color. Due to the higher string tension of this model, the fingerboard of the acoustic guitar is narrow and curved, which makes it easier to play chords.

The sound of a classical guitar

Which sound you prefer, the solid spruce top or the warmer and more voluminous sound of the solid cedar top is a matter of taste. In the premium guitar segment, you will find fully solid classical guitars with both cedar and spruce tops. Solid means that not only the top but also the sides and the back are made of solid wood.

The sound of guitars with spruce or cedar top

The most commonly used top woods for classical guitars are cedar and spruce, which produce a fundamentally different sound. The spruce top is lighter in color compared to the usually darker-sounding cedar top and the acoustic is similar. Classical guitars also sound more brilliant in the higher frequencies and need a longer break-in period. The cedar top, on the other hand, has a very direct and overtone-rich tone response right from the start. The cedar top sounds much more voluminous and warmer than the spruce.

Originally, the soundhole rosettes were used as a support to prevent cracking of the wood at the soundhole. Over time, in addition to their protective function, their role as an aesthetic element has become more firmly established. The name “rosette”, originated in reference to church windows, which were commonly called “rosette windows”.Since the Middle Ages, churches used decorations to form the arch of the window. Some luthier began to use the rosette for all their guitars, using it as their personal signature.

The classical guitar headstock

Unlike the lute, the Spanish vihuela had a flat head plate instead of the usual pegbox. The pegs – at that time still simple wooden pegs – were inserted through holes in the head plate from behind. Later, with the invention of the gear mechanism, the guitarists wanted to keep the typical pegs at the back, and so they developed the head plate with two slots and transverse axles, as we know it from today’s classical concert guitar. As the rosette’s many luthiers created their own headstock designs which some of became inseparable from the guitar maker, such as the headstock of Daniel Friederich’s concert guitars with the beautiful relief on it.
