Wood
M 9M used Master Moon Spruce as a top, and Madagascar Rosewood as a back and side wood.

Master Moon Spruce - Originating from Switzerland, Moon spruce possesses a white snowy appearance and a straight, tighter wood grain. It can accommodate different climates exceptionally, which makes it one of the more durable and stable tone woods. It takes time to open up but its sound will have rich overtones in tandem with complex tonal harmonics.

Cocobolo has a striking reddish wood grain and although it is part of the family of rosewood, it is much harder and denser. These special characteristics make this hardwood punch back with more power, all the while delivering a clearer pronounced sound. It sustains a saturated fuller sound in the high, mid and low ranges. The extra low resonance tone it carries is truly remarkable. This tonewood is often labeled as the “holy grail” for guitar.
Brace
Hauser brace design enhance overtone in the trebles. It is ideal for Bach, and modern music which demands high clarity and separation of voices within the composition. Clean sound with very responsive touch.
Construction
The Hauser body that we build is taken from a 1942. Hauser I, our guitars in this size are very beautiful to look at, with a more rounded body profile than the Spanish body. They have a more compressed sound than the larger model, however, volume and balance and tone are otherwise similar.
Details
Mosaic design rosette is use, exquisite layered patterns, and colorful. They are design for the elegant classical guitars. Rosewood binding is use, and protect the body against impact.
Headstock
Montoya classical guitar headstock made with Madagascar rosewood veneer. GOTOH gold machinehead is use for precise tuning with 1:16 tuning ratio.
Fretboard
Ebony is a hard dense tone wood with silky smooth feeling. It's a stable wood to be a fretboard, adds brightness to the tone, and faster attack. Spanish Cedar neck for strength and stability.
Bridge / Saddle
Traditional rectangular Madagascar bridge helps support the string tension. Madagascar bridge offer fuller tone. Bone added at edge of bridge to protect string tension against the wood. The buffalo bone for the nut which is very hard and articulate. This helps the strings to vibrate and to have a deep resonance.
