Classical and Flamenco Guitars Robert Bouchet, Torres, Hermann Hauser, Daniel Friederich, Fleta, Rubio...
The design of the modern classical guitar can be attributed to Antonio de Torres.
The construction of these guitars has been considered the standard in "traditional" instruments since the mid 19th century.
Contemporary classical guitars follow the Smallman design which replaces the fan braces with a much lighter balsa brace attached to the back of the sound board with carbon fiber.
The balsa brace has a honeycomb pattern and allows the now much thinner sound board to support more vibrational modes.
This leads to greater volume and longer sustain.
