    A beautiful looking and sounding seven-string nylon-string guitar.

    The handcrafted Kremona Fiesta Cutaway 7-string nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar is part of Kremona’s Performer Series. Solid Indian rosewood back and sides combines with the solid red cedar top for an extremely rich and dynamic tone. The Honduras cedar neck is toped with an Indian ebony fingerboard. The Fishman Prefix Pro Blend pick-up system allows you to plug in for a warm and natural sound anywhere. Wooden edging, purfling and rosette with a gloss finish give the guitar a refined and graceful appearance. Other refinements include bone nut and saddle, black single machine heads, set dovetail neck joint, Royal Classics and "Sonata" model Mid Tension Strings. Case sold separately.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Kremona Fiesta CW-7 7-String Classical Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Nice tight-grained cedar top
      beautiful rosewood back
      natural unfinished bridge ... responds nicely to lemon oil
      head veneer looks beautiful after lemon oil
      excellent electronics

      I discovered that the most natural sound (i.e. as close as possible to the non-amplified guitar) was with flat tone controls, notch filter off and 'contour frequency' at 2 - 3 o'clock.

      Kremona set the string width at 7.5 mm at the nut and action was a tad high. I prefer 8.5 mm, same as the Tusq nut molds. I carved my own Tusq (higher-density polymer than bone or ivory) nut (from a Tusq blank) and saddle. Neck width at the nut left only 5 mm between strings 6 and 7; however, string spacing grows to 7.5 mm at V and 8.5 mm at XII. This was with 3 mm from high E to fret edge ... and 7th string at fret edge. Another 10 mm of neck width at the nut would have been perfect ... my only reasons for not rating it 5 stars. The higher up the neck, the less the narrow neck is an issue. Had 4.5 starts been available, that's what I would have rated it, since everything else is a delight.

      This guitar came ALIVE with the high-density polymer nut and saddle ... stunning echo and sustain (~10 seconds for bass and ~5 seconds for trebles) ... very rich tone harmonics.

      I set string height at the nut to ~3.5 64ths; ~9.5 64ths at XII ... with NO buzzing. Other Kremonas (Sophia and Cocobolo) have set up the same (i.e. with no buzzing) for me.

      I feared that the cut-out might spell the end of the bass; however, the guitar is DEEP in depth, making up for the cutout. Bass is tremendous, vibrating right into your chest. That 7th string (which I left tuned to "B") sounds like a bass guitar - a treat to hear.

      As it turned out (with high-density saddle and nut), I am SO very pleased with the rich, harmonic sound and deep chest-vibrating bass. It's wonderful ... and I would highly recommend it to anyone for a widely versatile (classical or otherwise) nylon-stringed (Royal Classics RG70 from Kremona, btw) guitar. Don't hesitate; the CW-7 is a gem!
