OH MY GOD !!!!!! The baby has arrived!!!! I can't begin to tell you how happy I am... She is just as you promised... WONDERFUL!!! It's EXACTLY what I wanted !!! She is tuned, and plays like a dream!!! The action is so perfect!!! Most guitars in the stores have very high action, but this is perfect... The sound is wonderful and the equalizer with the tuner is awesome!!! The tone is great!!! Renato, thank you from the bottom of my heart, there is NOwhere else that I know of that you can buy such a wonderful instrument for such a price... This guitar is worth a lot more and I will treasure it forever!!! Once again, thank you, you are truly an inspiration to humanity. Your kindness and love shows that there is still hope for the human race. May all of you have the most wonderful Easter ever, and know that I will have you in my prayers. :-) Your friend sending you lots of warm hugs,
Packing and DHL service were up to standards. For a guitar that was just finished last week, the sound is very good and my teacher was also impressed! I like the clean sound (no strange overtones), projection, and sweet singing voice. I’ll definitely play this everyday with the action set just right. I also like the “customization” (gold plate engraving and HUGE label!). Smells nice too! Definitely, this guitar delivers as you promised!
I love my guitar ! It is different from what we have here in Spain. It is naif, made according to the builder's instincts without copying from other models. She carries the soul of the people who worked on her, I can feel the love and professional work of their hands. Very well finished. She's got the crystalline sound of the greatest instruments. You know I own a Ramirez 1a, therefore, I know what a great instruments must sound like. The action is easy and I can even lower the bones more if I want. The closest comparison to your guitar that I can find is the Catalunyan master school of luthiers. Best Regards.
First the form fits just optimally for me to use it in the classic position ( where my Aria for instance tends to glide down the upper legs surface of the leg put behind ). Most important of all: It vibrates greatly. Joe, proAnd those mids are exactly as bony like that Laskin guitar that I showed to you. The highs so mellow ... oh boy!! And the A string punches your stomach like Tyson. When I play rest strokes near the bridge you get a bell like shininess and when towards the soundhole to pick some soft notes, mother earth, what complex and deep sound floats through the room. Killer stuff ! I got what I wanted. A guitar that could be sufficient to the end of my days if must be while it didn´t cost me a leg and an arm.
Not bad for shipping to a war zone!! You and DHL did an outstanding job of shipping the instrument. The guitar is absolutely beautiful!!! The sound is incredible!!! Thanks to you and the luthier on a great guitar and an excellent price!!I will definitely be looking at purchasing another instrument in the near future. Thanks again and take care.
She's a beauty professor, I cannot stop playing and looking at her. She's a piece of art. Every detail is perfect: the gold plaque, the numbered label with my name and the builder's signature. The finish !! I love her ! I can see she was built with love. The sound is beautiful and DHL delivered her fast and the guitar was hyper protected. Thank you and the luthier for the outstanding work.

Beautiful to my eyes but not only that !! As soon as she adapted to the new environment, I started admiring the quality of the sound: solid, round sound, what I was looking for, but mainly, a perfect equilibrium between the voices and an even sound throughout the fingerbord...quite an achievement !! The wait and promises have been respected, my greatest compliments to you and the very skillful Builder for such a great craft and the professional treat shown all throughout. I go back to practice. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
Frankly, I could not be happier. Please thank the builder for his care in creating her, and you, Renato, for selecting her for me. Its been quite a journey. My Sincerest Thanks P.S.: Although it feels like cheating on my new "baby", I think I would like to order the spruce version (especially at that price, I would foolish not to)
The guitar looks beautiful, you have done a really nice job in producing a good looking instrument. I love the tone and the even balance across the strings and the sound and tone from the top string balances nicely with the others rather than standing out as an obvious "top string". The one thing that really stands out is the response, hammer-ons and trills now sound like slurs and trills without using enormous effort to strike the strings which results in the accompanying thud on the the fretboard. I can slur with minimum effort and vary the volume easily with pressure and it is a joy to just play around a scale slurring everything - all over the fretboard. The 13th fret on the 3rd string now sounds like a proper note when I play Adelita rather than the well tuned dull thud I am used to and glissando is nice and smooth and variable depending on pressure. My full barre major chords are much better and I can actually full barre D Major at fret 10 and it sounds like a chord, all the notes are clear as I seem to need a lot less pressure. I alway had trouble before when I was above fret 7. Warm Regards
The guitar arrived here on time I have been playing it exclusively since then my other guitars are back in their cases for now. The first thing I noticed is the excellent packaging, very secure and very safe; the guitar arrived in pristine condition. I was very impressed with the workmanship; it is obvious a lot of dedication and care has gone into the making of this guitar. The choice of woods is great; I love the wooden panels of the back. Lovely finishing, with an almost glass-like luster to it. The whole guitar just felt solidly built and is very comfortable to hold and to play. Loud basses and clear separate trebles, with very good projection and sustain. It seems that the guitar gets better every day, so much so that my wife did not notice any difference between it and my Spanish guitar. Thank you for a wonderful instrument.

The guitar arrived today finally. I played it about 5-6 hours now. What can I say? It's absolutely a wonderful guitar! The sound is beautiful, sweet and clean with good sustain. The projection is excellent. I'm especially in love with the bass and the mid range. The bass is really powerful and focus. I can feel the vibration of the bass sound through my body when playing. The treble is so sweet and I expect the sound will improve in few months when the guitar opens up. The guitar also looks beautiful. It has a lot of characteristics that I'm looking for. I love it. I will recommend it to all my friends. Thanks very much for the work of art. Best Regards.
The guitar is the most wonderful birthday present I ever received...All my friends give two thumbs up for it every time I show it...especially after they play it...It is worth every penny! My best regards and congratulations to the luthier.
Boy, am I pleased! The design and construction of these instruments are excellent. The cedar is a cannon right now, and I can't imagine what it will be like in six months or a year. The spruce is more subtle, more refined, but it too will just blossom in a couple of months. This is a very good deal. I couldn't have bought guitars of this quality for under $3,000 each up here in the States. List me as a very satisfied customer.
The guitar has arrived today in pristine condition and is playing remarkably well already. She is a beautiful guitar and compares favorably with similar Spanish concert guitars. A big thank you for all your help & advice and also to the luthiers for their fine craftsmanship. Kind Regards, Steve. p.s. "care of the Instrument" instructions are a big help
The wonderful smell of wood filled the room as I opened the case. She's elegant, splendid wood selection and delicate finish in every detail. A full warm sound to my shy right hand plucking. I will devote all my attention to this beauty. I am really happy. The gold plaque is a wonderful detail. The digital tuner and the humidifier... essential. Thank you Renato for this wonderful instrument and to the men that built it.
