Patrick Mailloux began building classical guitars full-time in 2003. His workshop is located in the beautiful Lac Beauport area, in the mountains north of Québec City. Since 2011, he has exclusively been using a double top construction with a Nomex core. His guitars have a modern design, a raised fingerboard, an armrest, an extra soundhole opening and a 12-hole bridge. His inspiration comes from many different modern and contemporary guitar makers, ranging from Daniel Friederich to Gregory Byers. His guitars are highly acclaimed worldwide and have been played in concerts and international guitar competitions around the globe.
This brand-new guitar called “Klarisa” has a Canadian Western Red Cedar double top and East Indian Rosewood back and sides. “Klarisa” has many of the modern features already mentioned. The back and sides are doubled with cypress, which increases stability and gives the sound more clarity. The extremely fast response combined with a very ergonomic neck shape makes this guitar particularly comfortable to play for both the right and left hand.
