Fender MC-1 3/4 Nylon
Fender MC-1 3/4 Nylon Product Overview by GAK
The MC-1 3/4 Nylon from Fender is the perfect guitar for somebody who wants something a little smaller than a full body guitar.
An upgraded version of the MA-1 and MC-1 mini's, the MC-1 features upgraded tuners and Sapele wood back and sides to produce a resonant and full tone.
Fender Product Overview
Fender's upgraded MA-1 mini acoustic and MC-1 mini classical guitars now provide an improved playing experience akin to that of more expensive full-size instruments.
These great-sounding, solidly built 3/4 size guitars are perfect for school music programs, individual students and beginners who are more comfortable with a smaller guitar. New features include upgraded tuners for more stable intonation, Fender headstock logo, and back and sides made from a beautifully grained tropical wood called sapele, which produces a sweet, full tone.
A great choice for beginning musicians or experienced players who like having a small travel guitar, the MC-1 3/4 Nylon is a classical guitar that will help people start playing and keep playing. Nylon strings are perfect for beginners, who are often turned off by the sharp initial discomfort of steel strings, and with a smaller nylon-string guitar like the MC-1, it’s much easier to practice without finger pain. Even with its small size and small price, the MC-1 is a well-made guitar with good tone and solid intonation that exceed the expectations of most student-level instruments and a gig bag for easy transport is included.
TRADITIONAL CLASSICAL FAN BRACING
Classical guitars typically have thinner tops and lighter bracing than steel-string guitars, with a bracing pattern that "fans" out from the soundhole toward the bottom of the guitar. This fan-like placement of the individual braces makes an important contribution to the rich nylon-string classical tone that guitarists and listeners have loved for ages.
The smooth sheen and silken feel of a satin finish impart a classic air of stylish elegance to any acoustic instrument. For a refined look and comfortable fretting-hand feel, a satin finish makes for a smoothly satisfying playing experience.
ROSEWOOD BRIDGE AND FINGERBOARD
With a pleasingly dark look, solid strength, smooth feel and excellent tonal quality, rosewood is a longtime standard for crafting quality acoustic instrument bridges and fingerboards, from the mightiest jumbo guitar to the most diminutive ukulele.
