The La Patrie Arena CW QIT provides players with a high-performance thinline classical guitar, crafted from a spruce top and mahogany body to produce deep, warm tones with excellent balance across the whole frequency range. The spruce top has been pressure tested to deliver the highest level of stiffness and rigidity, improving the Arena's maximum harmonic content and durability. A mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard are also added, injecting the overall sound with incredible depth and dynamics. The La Patrie is also equipped with Godin's Q1T electronics, featuring a responsive saddle-transducer and preamp section to ensure players deliver a truly stunning performance on stage and in the studio. Handcrafted in Canada with great attention to detail, the La Patrie Arena CW QIT Guitar provides players with a whole new playing experience.
Solid Spruce Top Body
The La Patrie Arena Classical Guitar features a stunning pressure tested spruce top, delivering beautifully warm tones with enhanced characteristics. The manufacturing process of pressure testing each solid top ensures they have the highest levels of stiffness and rigidity, along with maximum harmonic vibration. This process is becoming more and more popular with guitar manufacturing as it benefits the overall tone, projection, and resonance of a guitar. It is this combination of quality, rigidity, and flexibility that gives the top its incredible resonance and stunning appearance.
Custom Polish for a Custom Appearance
Like all guitars from La Patrie, the Arena series features a stunning custom polished finish inspired by the appearance of French polish of the 19th Century. Rather than applying a thick coat of polish like standard classical guitars, the La Patrie's custom finish is thinner to allow the wood to breathe and vibrate freely, while also offering plenty of protection from the elements. This type of finish also delivers a better sound the older it gets, making it a worthwhile investment.
Classic Cutaway Design
The cutaway is a popular feature on many guitars, consisting of an indentation in the upper bout of the body. Its function is to simply allow easier access to the higher frets, providing you with more freedom around the fingerboard.
Innovative Double Function Truss Rod
The Arena CW QIT Guitar is also equipped with an innovative double-function truss rod system within its mahogany neck. Truss rods are never normally featured on classical guitars, having always been made with thick neck dimensions, yet its function on the Arena Acoustic allows for a slimmer neck profile. This clever truss rod system offers extraordinary comfort, while increasing stability.
The addition of Godin's Q1T electronics provides the La Patrie Arena with an incredible performance designed for the studio and stage. This streamlined setup features a responsive saddle-transducer and an easy to use preamp section mounted to the side of the guitar. Operating this preamp is quick and easy with it rotary controls for volume, treble, and bass, letting you deliver on-the-fly tone tweaking. The transducer and EQ section have been specially contoured to bring out the rich characteristics of your tone, providing a full reproduction of your sound for a powerful playing experience. A built-in tuner is also added, ensuring your guitar remains in tune in any environment.
Attention to Detail
A beautiful guitar wouldn't be complete without the final touches. The La Patrie Arena is nicely finished off with an intricate rosette, cream binding, and rosewood bridge, as well as a cream Tusq nut and a fully compensated saddle by Graphtech.
