I've been working with shorter string lengths and smaller body guitars for a long time. Recently Scott Gossage a Teacher at Silicon Valley Classical Guitar School was in our showroom shopping with a talented young student, and while trying guitars he said "if only you had this size guitar but with this string length." What he said made sense to me, so I did it.
I have taken our standard Performance Series and reduced the perimeter by 5mm all the way around, and built it with 630mm string length, and I love it. We are referring to the body size as 7/8, which is about right. To me the lines of the body are just beautiful, the guitar feels wonderful and luxuriant, and it produces a full concert sound, and plays very easily.
I don't know of anything else like it anywhere. If you have ever wondered about something like this, well, this is it. You really deserve to try it.
