"Phenomenal Value"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
For the price you're not going to get a better classical guitar anywhere. The craftsmanship is astonishingly good, the neck is dead straight, fretwork and finish are flawless, sound is crisp and round and deep. Cons are the machine heads are not the best so they can slip a bit. I plan to replace them with some high quality Schaller machine heads. The other con is the action is way too high and it needs a setup and intonation adjustment. So if you want to watch a few youtube videos on how to file down a classical nut and file and intonate a saddle, you're good to go. Or you can get a luthier to do it for you. So all in with the new tuners and some tools, you'll come in at about the $450 dollar range for a guitar that sounds much more expensive and stays perfectly in tune, or around $550 if you have a luthier set it up. That's an amazing value.
