Best Uses

    Comments about Kremona Fiesta CW-7 Classical 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!

    Decent 7 string classical

    Comments about Kremona Fiesta CW-7 Classical Electric Guitar:

    There are very few 7 string classical models on the market and having come from a 7 string Godin Multiac (whose quality was excellent) I was looking for a more full bodied sound. This guitar's sound was sweet and fairly balanced with the low B. The action and setup out of the box was great however a setup by your tech would be required to get the best of it.
    The unfortunate thing about the guitar is the quality control is a bit overlooked. The finish had some marks on it and on the side of fretboard there are clearly markings that there had been fret markers but then were gone over with finish. The bridge also had a little chip off of the corner among other things.
    I contacted MF to send another in which they helped and the second was much worst. Finish flaws all over and many inconsistencies. So I opted to keep the first one because my only option for this kind of guitar would be to go into the boutique builds which cost much more. The sound is great but if the company would put some more attention to the craftsmanship it would then be a top value.
