7-string acoustic guitar, Sapelli wood, APC

Sapele wood is a resistant, beautiful and sustainable hardwood. The sound characteristics of sapele wood are typically consistent and balanced across the entire sound spectrum, making the guitar sound compatible with a wide range of playing styles. The wood is comparable to mahogany, but its higher density tends to produce a slightly brighter sound with more brilliance in the trebles. Sapele is a sustainable, relatively fast-growing wood. Sapelli, or Sapele Mahogany has a more rich and dark reddish color as compared to Mahogany.

Nearly half a century of luthier tradition has gone into this high-quality instrument produced in Europe. APC specialises in Portuguese stringed instruments with a beautiful selection of Brazilian stringed instruments, their focus is on high quality standards and excellent sound. APC instruments are also visually appealing. Soft, warm-sounding, local woods and the luthiering experience of a family business have resulted in a range of instruments that are truly worth seeing and hearing. Quality made in Portugal.

Top: solid spruce
Rib and back: Sapelli
Strings: Nylon
Tuning: E, B, G, D, A, E, B

No truss rod is required for this model. APC uses truss rods only on classical guitars with steel strings. The tension of the 7th or 8th string applied to the neck is not so strong that it requires a truss rod. In addition, the design of the neck construction already has the geometry to withstand the tension statically and strengthen the neck itself.

Handmade quality cavaquinhos from Portugal, beautifully finished and made in Europe

Born in 1951, António Pinto Carvalho, founder of APC Instrumentos Musicais, opened his company in 1976 with the aim of producing high quality stringed instruments.

Already at the tender age of 10, António Pinto Carvalho began to learn the art he still devotes himself to today. Guided and inspired by his grandfather, he built the first cavaquinhos and guitars. Today he is one of the most famous guitar makers in Portugal, the company is still in the hands of his family.

With around 50 employees, APC is the largest national company in this field and produces and sells a wide range of instruments worldwide. Despite its traditional background, the company invests in the latest technology and strives for the greatest possible accuracy and precision in the manufacturing of string instruments. However, the irreplaceable work of a luthier remains important, turning every instrument into a unique piece and defining its beauty and sound. The symbiosis between 19th century craftsmanship and today's technology is the key to the quality and authenticity of every APC instrument.

APC Instrumentos Musicais stands for Portugal's reputation for string instrument making, a country as rich in chords and sound scapes as the string instruments themselves. Genuine Portuguese culture and tradition.
