The Sunset Nylectric was engineered to bridge the gap between electric and classical players by merging classical guitar features with a low-profile, more traditional electric instrument body style. The 25.6” scale Sunset Nylectric captures elegance in engineering and classical playability while maintaining superlative build quality.
For electric guitar players who are looking to a great classical nylon-string sound on stage at a reasonable price, the new Sunset NY provides flexibility and rock-solid performance without the hassles of amplifying a traditonal acoustic nylon-string guitar. Features the traditional slotted headstock and machine heads for an authentic classical guitar look and functionality in a nylon-string electric. Unlike the square-cut heel of traditional bolt-on guitars, the heel on the Sunset Nylectric is beveled round and thin for easier and smoother access to the frets in the high register of the fingerboard.
Compared to the standard classical guitar’s 52mm (2.0”) nut width, the Nylectric’s slightly narrower 45mm width makes it ideal for both traditional classical playing as well as standard acoustic steel-string or electric guitar playing, combining the best of all worlds in a single versatile guitar for a variety of playing styles.
Developed specifically for the unique vibrational characteristics of nylon strings, the Fishman Sonicore VTB EQ system conveys the natural sound of nylon with transparency and exceptional string-to-string balance. The Sonicore’s powerful yet organic-sounding pre-amplification is perfectly suited for both recording and any type of live performance application.
Fitted with Savarez Cristal Corum 500CJ high-tension nylon guitar strings which include Corum polished-silver-wound basses with Cristal trebles. If you prefer a higher tension playing feel, then this 500CJ set is perfect for you.
