Sonata BS Cut

The Sonata BS Cut ( Bocote/Spruce ) gets its great sound from the selected solid spruce top in combination with the strong bocote body. Since time immemorial, the spruce-bocote wood combination has been a very good choice for high-quality concert guitars.

As electro-acoustic classical guitars with cutaway, the Sonata Cut models are equipped with Artesanos eSonido pickup system. This has been specially designed for the sound characteristics of the Sonatas and makes them perfect stage guitars.

The active Artesano eSonido preamp has, in addition to the usual adjustment options such as volume and 4-band equalizer, a feedback filter (notch) and an integrated chromatic tuner.

Protecting our forests is important. Join in!
Sustainability is becoming more and more important for all of us. The protection of nature is very close to our hearts. That is why we at ARTESANO have decided to use only wood from controlled sustainable forestry for the Nuevo, Sonata, Maestro and Flamenco series. All models of these series use these sustainable tonewoods.

Sonata BS Cut

Whether purely acoustic or for professional stage use: among the Sonatas, everyone will find their personal allround guitar.

eSonido Preamp

The eSonido pickup system, which was specially developed for ARTESANO guitars, has a 4-band equalizer in addition to the volume control in order to be able to adapt the output signal to the respective acoustic environment in the best possible way. Good readability and ease of operation were just as important during development as the quickly accessible battery compartment next to the output jack. Particularly practical for live use: the built-in chromatic tuner. The notch filter also allows unwanted feedback to be eliminated in a matter of seconds.
