La Patrie Etude Classical Guitar

For my solo guitar gigs (mostly dinner music at restaurants), I use a La Patrie Etude classic guitar strung with D'Addario EXP46 coated hard tension strings.

The La Patrie is one of the Godin product lines really made in Canada by local luthiers and not imported from Asia. The Godin lines like Seagull and La Patrie are like a "best kept secret" in the acoustic guitarists world because for its quite low price, you get top quality wood and workmanship. Many players who have tried the La Patrie feel that in terms of tone, volume and playability, it is comparable to guitars 3 to 5 times the price.
