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.
I got my RW guitar yesterday and I wanted to tell you that I am very pleased with this instrument, too. It looks much prettier than on the pictures. I'll send you a picture of me and the new guitar as soon as I get hold of a camera. Have a good weekend. Best regards,
She arrived today and is beautiful! Forcing myself to wait to let her adapt to the inbhouse climnate before playing. That's hard! Thank you
My cedar top is really a beautiful instrument and a pleasure to play. I play it every day and just enjoy its beauty when I pause from playing. I am indeed very happy !
The guitar was deliverd to me this morning. Thank you for nice and adequate packaging. The finish is great. I like the reaction of the guitar. I found the neck and the tension of the string to be what I was looking for. Thanks for supplying a great guitar that gives big pleasure to play. Best regards,
I have just received my guitar and it is in perfect condition. I just love the sound and the spruce top really looks beautiful. Compliments to the luthier. Now I can show all those skeptics that you can order a concert guitar over the internet. Regards.

I received my guitar Friday. Opening the shipping box, first I saw the case which is very nice, very substantial. Then I opened the case. Inside was the most beautiful guitar imaginable. The cedar top, finished, beautifully is only surpassed by the richness and stunning character of the Brazilian rosewood sides and back. Bravo for you and Mangore guitars.
My Paraguayan baby arrived safely today - what a beauty! The craftsmanship on this guitar is superb - please pass on my thanks to the luthier. The tone is very even, and the overall sound is really clear. I have not used a humidifier before - would this be necessary in typically humid Irish weather? Thank you very much for setting up the guitar - it is a pleasure to play! Thanks also for the useful tips included. Best Regards
I play all the time , What a wonderful work of art. Precious. The sound is wonderful. I compared it with my 1979 Manuel Contreras, a great instrument I must add, I came to the conclusion that what you say is true....your guitars compare to the best. My congratulations to the builder and to you Renato. This has been a fantastic experience. Keep up the good work. Your friend.

I never held such an easy to play instrument in my hands. The sound grows with every passing day and I love the way my music sounds when I play on her. My sincere thanks to Luthier Guzmán, for building such a great instrument. I look forward to buying a cutaway, with onboard amplification from you soon this 2005.
The guitar arraived. I expected much, and everything is perfect. She is great! A dream to play, and a very good sound! I have made a few recordings. It's easy now!
The guitar sounds excellent. I am already hearing sounds that I did not use to hear on my Yamaha guitar. My fingers stay at a better position. The sound is crisp and delightful. The whole instrument resonates when I play. I am really pleased.
The sound is wonderful, when I play, I feel the vibrations throughout my body...Fantastic ! She's Beautiful. The care to detail and finish is simply outstanding.
I have not put the guitar down since I received it- its that much fun. Plucked chords sound especially well balanced and solid. The action is excellent and the neck thickness is very much to my liking. The sustain is also quite good as well as the harmonics and overtones. It is sounding better and better. It's really growing on me. It is extremely lush and sweet even when played very softly. When this guitar opens up it will be terrific. Also I noticed that the guitar is much louder when you sit in front of it and hear someone else play. I had a friend over who is a good player, do some of the Ponce Preludes and I have to tell you it sounded wonderful. He really liked the instrument, this is coming from someone who owns a John Price Spruce top from Australia ($6500.00). Thank You , Thank You. A really great instrument for a really great price. Many Thanks.
