-The Spirit of the Ouessant -
From the head to the easel, through the vents, the principle of locking the handle are all components designed to function one from the other.
The optimal goal is that the finite instrument appears obvious, almost classical, despite a decidedly contemporary line.
Why flax? The use of composites in guitar making goes back a long time, but I wanted to get out of overusing carbon due to its numerous ecological drawbacks. Flax makes for a great alternative, it’s natural, welcoming and the same mechanical results can be achieved as with carbon, at least for a guitar !
Technology – Based on the Ouessant guitar concept, the body is laminated with bio-composites, flax fibre and resin selected for it’s mechanical performance.The position of the soundhole is an evolution that came about naturally to allow greater sound board flexibility. The spider bracing is innovative with it’s pre-stressed harmonic bars.

Molène is my new model of acoustic guitar strings steel.
The principle is for me to propose a model of traditional appearance, which brings together the evolutions and innovations that I developed on my model Ouessant for several years.
The eco-composite body in particular, shell molded in linen fiber and resin "green-epoxy", whose very rounded shape of the bottom and contours brings both a great ergonomic comfort, and a very interesting acoustic reproduction.
The linen fabric is transformed in Normandy, produced locally near the Lineo company, which is extremely satisfactory in terms of ecological impact.
The density, the weight of the hull that we stratified, is established in order to get closer to the mechanical behavior of the wood, but providing more resistance to shocks as to temperature and hygrometry variations.
Parlor guitar type 00, in the great tradition of small jumbo models, handle 12 cases, very powerful and stamped for the blues.
