The eco-composite body in particular, molded shell in flax fiber and “green-epoxy” resin, whose very rounded shape of the bottom and contours provides both great ergonomic comfort, and a very interesting acoustic reproduction.

The density, the weight of the shell that we laminate, is established in order to get as close as possible to the mechanical behavior of the wood, but by providing more resistance to shocks as well as to variations in temperature and hygrometry.
For this 12 string, I chose a red cedar “double skin” table with a honeycomb core, pre-constrained spider barrage.
