The Grimes Beamer Nylon String is a seamless combination of traditional building methods paired with modern innovation. When designing the Beamer, Grimes strived to create a small bodied nylon string guitar that possessed the bass response of a larger guitar, while maintaining a strong high end. The solution was to divide the area of a traditional sound hole amongst two sound holes that are placed near the shoulders of the upper bout. This effectively expands the soundboard and allows a larger, uninterrupted area to vibrate. The tone producing potential is further enhanced by moving the traverse brace up to the end of the fingerboard, as opposed to its traditional position behind the sound hole. These unique innovations, paired with is Cedar top, and Koa back and sides, gives the Beamer a tone that is unmatched, with warm and defined bass, present and strong highs, and beautiful projection and string balance. With its hand crafted tone, and ornate appointments, the Grimes Beamer is an ideal choice for the uncompromising classical guitarist.
