Model Quatre

> Description

Model Quattre was introduced at the Django Reinhardt festival 2005. With this model Eimers-Guitars added a new ‘sound flavor’ to the collection. Quattre’s construction significantly deviates from Selmer style guitar models like Nympheas and the SRSM. Quattre has a wider body, 4 braces supporting the top and a 3 piece Maple neck. The 4 brace pattern was initialy used by Mario Maccaferri in his short scale D-hole design. Later on this particular design of 4 braces and wider body was used by the famous French luthier Favino. The use of 4 parallel braces make the top light in weight and less stiff than a 5 brace top. In combination with the larger body (increasement of air in the soundchamber) gives this guitar an unique sound. The 3 piece maple neck results in a stable neck which contributes to the sustain. It’s loud and ‘fat’ with a sparkling high range.

> Optional
