How do you judge a fine guitar?

Is it the type of wood? The design of the the sound board? The shape of the head stock?

You don't judge a fine guitar. You play it.

You hear it: The basses resonate. The high strings ring like cathedral bells. The harmonics hang in the air. Each note is united to the others, yet a distinct entity.

You feel it: The instrument rests, light and strong against your body. The chords vibrate against your chest. Scales run smooth and clean as if flowing from your fingers.

You don't judge a fine guitar. You play it and believe.

The artisans of Chateau Guitars are devoted to all the disciplines essential to creating a fine instrument. The most important of these: Music.

Chateau's co-founder and principal luthier Mao is a highly accomplished classical guitarist who loves and plays the Spanish master works and Bach suites. He makes guitars because he loves to express his inner music.

Play a Chateau guitar. Hear. Feel. Believe.
