I am a music student and needed a classical guitar for this semester. I didn't have much money to put into buying one and so I went with this one. The reviews seemed persuasive for what I was looking for, but I wasn't expecting anything great. When I recieved it I was really impressed with the tone and how it could stay in tune so well--maybe a few cents flat after a week. Now, as the semester is moving on, I have been getting into harder pieces and still am amazed by the quality of this instrument for the price I payed.

I ordered this guitar a few months ago and like it very much. I will say this, the guitar looks NOTHING like the picture that is displayed on this web page! The sound whole design is not as nice as in the picture, the tuners are silver and not gold, and the body is not light in color. It is orange-ish and somewhat of a satin finish, not clear coated. But it is a good guitar to learn on. I had never played guitar before and this is my first. I recommend the Korg GA-30 tuner and the CC-1 Alvarez guitar case. It?s an awesome case at a good price.

Amazing guitar

By AllAboutTheMusic01

from Frederick, MD

I bought this guitar as soon as it came out, and i have to say it is one of the best ones i've ever played. Mine looks exactly like the picture, so it as a very sleek classic look. It has a beautiful rich sound, expecially right after you put on new strings, and the shape of the guitar fits perfectly on the lap of the player. Many of my friends have played it and loved it. This guitar however is not for someone with short and/or small fingers as the fret board is rather wide.

Great Classical

By I_am_the_Behemoth

from Minnesota

This guitar is great for beginner/intermedaite classical players. I have played on it multiple times and I really enjoy the feel of the body style, and I love the nylon/steel combination of strings. The gold tuners are very artisic and beautiful, along with the soundhole inlay. I would recommend this to any classical player.

Not What I Expected

By Kazman

from South East Michigan

Like someone posted before, the guitar I recived is not the one pictured. It has a satin orange finish and a rosette that is not nearly as nice as the one pictured. In fact, I wasn't even sure it was the right guitar, but it says Alvarez RC10 in the soundhole. Overall, it is a good guitar, it has a rather dead sounding string, but I am hoping that will change once I switch the strings. I bought this guitar for a travel guitar, something that isn't cumbersome to carry around. This guitar is very light and has alot of high and low end sound, but I find the mid range to be lacking, once again, hoping that will change with the strings.

Wonderful

By cmos

from Gardner, MA

Guys, I have to tell you, this guitar is perfect for me. This is my second guitar and although it doesn't have the bells and whistles of my first, it's tones are perfect for my voice and is easy to play. I heartily recommend this guitar for a beginner.

Excellent Beginner Guitar

By Jimmy28

from Louisiana

This is my first classical guitar. This is an excellent beginner guitar with a great sound and easy on the wallet. My wife surprised me with it for Christmas '06 so I've been playing it for about 3 months. Here's what I've noticed so far. The paint? or color is wearing off the fretboard. It's most noticable down both edges under the E strings. Out of the box I noticed some slack in a couple of the tuning pegs that you have to turn past then come back to the note. I haven't tried to tighten them. The action is good, the spacing is good and frets seem fine to me. The guitar tunes quickly and stays in tune for the most part except for the 3rd(G)string. I really enjoy playing it and owning it. Even if I upgrade in the future I will definitely have the Alvarez RC10 on hand to take anywhere I go.

Great beginner classical guitar

By JohnnyRocket

from New York

I got this about 6 months ago and I love it to death. I originally played electric guitar and bass and was looking into a classical acoustic. I tried a few out in the music stores around where I live and, granted, some are of better quality, but the ones I really looked at buying instead of this one were over $700. This guitar is perfect for its price and I could not have asked for more for the money I spent. Great sound.

Fun to play

By Paul-_hh72

from Mid Mich

I really like this guitar. The action was a bit high at first but I took out the plastic saddle and sanded it down slid it back in and whammo, smooth as silk I didn't even have to remove/replace the strings, I just loosened them). I have it on a stand in the livingroom and I am always plucking it. Fun for blues and all those classic songs that are fun to play (Stairway, Over the Hills etc.). A very fun guitar and a great price. Buy and enjoy!
