Cleyton Fernandes is a young talented luthier. He played for a long time with a Zbigniew Gnatek and got his inspiration from the Australian school of lutherie. Cleyton is aiming at building loud guitars but with a traditional sound and dynamics which can offer a wide range of playing. This guitar offers dark and deep basses and clear and creamy trebles. The string separation is amazing and the sustain amazing. This number 71 is very much different for the 2021 we had for sale : the sound is definitely thicker and warmer.
Introducing a new luthier is a small achievement for us. We spend our time looking for new luthiers and it is very rare that we succeed to find a new luthier which meets all our requirements. As you know, we do purchase all the new guitars available in our showroom and do not take any guitar on consignment from the luthiers. We always refused to take any guitar on consignment from the luthiers because first, we think that it is unfair for them and secondly because generally, the good guitars are not available for sale at the luthier’s workshop (Most of our luthiers have at least 6 month-waiting lists). So for us, it is a fruit of a long work to convince a luthier to sell one of his guitars.
It has been 6 months since we first discussed with Cleyton Fernandes. Cleyton has a 18-month waiting list and we just received his last guitar.
Cleyton Fernandes is a professional guitarist, he has a PhD in Musical Performance, teaches in the Brazilian Federal University close to Fortaleza Brazil and keeps an international career. Cleyton has been making guitars since 2016. His guitars are played by important names of Brazilian guitar such as Everton Gloeden (Brazilian Guitar Quartet), Mario Ulloa, Gustavo Costa among others and currently has a waiting list of 18 months producing a limited number of guitars by year. Cleyton Fernandes is one of the most important representatives of the new generation of Brazilian lutherie.
His guitars combine power and sound projection without losing the timbre of traditional guitars, in addition to excellent playability.
