EMS Heritage Baroque Guitar
Our EMS Heritage Baroque guitar was newly designed and launched in 2015 and has been well received. It has a coopered back and sides and is fitted with Aquila New Nylgut strings. It is an attractive instrument with a bright, clear tone. Watch a demonstration of its playing possibilities by Jacob Heringman.
We set up these instruments to play at baroque pitch, a=415. They play well at modern pitch by simply changing the strings.
