The flamenco guitar is traditonally made of Spanish woods Cypress, Sycamore or rosewood, and the top constructed in Spruce. This (in the case of cypress and sycamore) accounts for its characteristic body color. The main differences between a classical and a flamenco guitars are the thinner lighter tops, which produces a “brighter” and more percussive sound quality.
Luthiers, also use less internal bracing to keep the top more percussively resonant. The top is typically made of either Spruce or Cedar, though other tone woods are used today. Volume has traditionally been very important for flamenco guitarists, as they must be heard over the sound of the dancers’ nailed shoes. To increase volume, harder woods, such as rosewood, can be used for the back and sides, with softer woods for the top.
