        I was at a local shop I usually browse through the acoustic room after playing a strat, tele, or les paul for a few minutes. I usually try not to look at the prices as I walk up to the wall and pluck the low E string. I listen as the note rings out and then decays. I did this to several and then when I got to this one the volume and rich bass projection just rang out and seemed to sustain for such a long time. I said, "Wow!" and quickly grabbed it and sat down on a stool. The music just poured out out of this thing and it was very inspirational. I hope you know what I am talking about. It's when you pick up a guitar that just resonates with you on so many levels and you are just free to create and the guitar just sings and responds to everything you do. Yep, that's what this one did. I went home and researched this thing and it's hand crafted in Bulgaria with old world style and is made out of the best woods. I had to have it. I'm just saying that I have been looking for a good classical guitar for a long time but refused to pay big bucks for one that doesn't even really do it for me. This one did it for a song. You better get one while you can.
        Hand crafted and solid wood construction. A gorgeous red cedar top that resonates incredibly well. Indian rosewood fingerboard, sides, and back. Dovetail neck joint and cedar neck. Bone nut and saddle. All I have to say - at this price point - is WOW!!!
        Very well made and old world craftmanship. Beautifully done in every way.

        The musician's friend specifications say that it has a polyurethane finish but it actually has nitrocellulose laquer which is much better.
        This guitar at the current price point is an incredbile value. I had to buy one right away because I just don't think that these guitars are going to be this affordable for long. I think it's one of those old iron curtain European type deals that once these are really known about that the price is going to come up several hundreds of dollars. I am extremely happy to have found this guitar.

        After reading all the positive reviews I decided to purchase this Fiesta model. After anxiously waiting for it to arrive it came...I opened the box and checked the guitars appearance. Bummer! Glue globs on the top side of the fret board next to the sound hole, and a very noticable smudge right under the sound hole and then they sprayed it with laquer or whatever coating they use. How could someone not see that?It seems to me that there is very little quality control at Orpheus Valley Guitar. The sound quality was very poor also I thought and when looking at the very thick laquer they apply to the entire guitar, it's no wonder why. I was all around disappointed more than I can express. There were a number of surface flaws also that I will not mention, but I had no confidence in how the rest of the guitar was built after seeing all that I saw.Musicians Friend however was A-1 with customer care and emailed me a return label to send that guitar back, and I chose another brand guitar (LaPatrie Collection)which will be on the way in a day or two.Sorry for the negative report, but I want to state the facts of my experience with Orpheus Valley. Poor, poor quality!

        Guitar was in very bad shape

        By classicalguitar1234

        from New York City

        Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

        Just a warning to people looking to purchase from Musicians Friend. I ordered a guitar online, that was described as lightly used. But when I received it I found that it had been cracked in three places and patched up by an amateur. The bridge had been reglued, you could see white cake crumbling under the bridge. There was also a thin, but through and through crack of the sound board, extending from the bottom right hand side to to the top near the neck. There were two wooden slabs hot glued under the sound board to hold the cracked wood together. Non of this was described.
        Musicians friend offered me a full refund and paid for the shipping, but I would be wary of buying from them again.

            Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

            First off, Musician's Friend is very accommodating and apologetic and they honestly try to make things right so, Kudos to them!

            I purchased a brand new (not a used purchase) Kremona Fiesta, and let it sit in box for 24 hours before opening and using it. Here's what I found:
            1. Fret buzz at many frets (not all) on any string, up and down the fretboard (totally unplayable).

            2. Saddle at 6th string was glossy. Saddle beneath 1st string was not glossy.

            3. Bought new in sealed box, it had dried water spots through entire guitar.

            4. Guitar had severe and rough scratch-marks all over the top and back (looks like someone used hard-cloth).

            5. Beneath the nut on the main wood of the neck, the worker cut too deep with a saw, making a crack-like appearance.

            I'm confident it was returned to Kremona factory & repackaged and resold as new. The box (inside Musician's Friend's box) was sealed and un-molested.

            I can't continue buying online, since it would appear I would be abusing rigid return policies from online retailers.
            Thus, I bought a Cervantes Hauser PE for just a little more money, nearby.

            Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

            I purchased this guitar after reading all the great reviews. Upon arrival, I carefully inspected it and had my instructor inspect it as well as I was unfamiliar with Kremona. This is a wonderful student level guitar, warm rich and mellow tone. Wonderful craftsmanship and beautiful details. We did see glue at the neck joint, this could be a deal breaker for some, I think it adds to the hand made charm. Came intonated and very playable. However the action is just a bit high. We did notice a lack of high end tone and lack of volume which I was told can be expected from solid rosewood when you aren't paying 2k+ and the internal binding/bracing is solid, which I'm told can be an issue as the wood ages and settles. I tried it against the romida model and still prefer this one, I felt this was much more warm and inviting than the romida. I don't think I would gig with it, due to the tonal properties, but it is a fantastic guitar and I see myself playing it for years to come.

                I bought this guitar in 2010 from Musician's Friend and have loved the guitar since opening the box.

                I love the finish, sound, and playability. Are there better classical guitars out there? Yes, but nothing comparable at this price point. It's just my opinion and I'm an intermediate level classical player, but this guitar is incredible for the money paid.

                This is by far the best sounding classical guitar I have ever played. Very deep and rich sounding. It has good volume and is easy to play. If something ever happened to it, I would buy another one without even thinking about it.

                Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

                If you are looking a decent guitar that really is worth your money, this is truly the guitar you'll need. I've compared models with Cordoba and Jose Ramirez and they don't compare to the quality that Kremona offers at their price. Kremona offers solid body construction on all their guitars which ultimately means that the guitar will grow in sound due to "aging" and overall will be loud. I use this guitar as my main instrument in college and it has not failed me yet. I believe it sounds best with D'addario's Pro Arte Hard Tension or EXP Hard. If you want proof on how good these instruments are, go to YouTube and search, DelaRosaFinale, I am proud to use a Kremona Orpheus Valley guitar. It has such a warm and loud tone, and the hand craftsmanship is outstanding. The bass can also be truly loud; I play in a trio and always told to take it down a notch because this guitar is truly loud.

                IMPRESSIVE INSTRUMENT

                By John Alajov

                from Los Angeles, CA

                Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

                Yesterday I spent 2 hours in the GC store in Fountain Valley, playing this Kremona Fiesta FC guitar and comparing it to some other ones in the store. I was absolutely impressed with the quality and the sound of this instrument. Super-light weight. Deep, but clear voice with strong projection. Gorgeous looks with uniquely colored tuning machine heads. Although LA has been my home for over 20 years, I grew up in Bulgaria where this guitar was built. If I am not mistaken the Bulgarian Kremona Music Instruments factory has been famous for quality violins and guitars for about 90 years. I truly enjoyed this guitar, and if it had a built-in piezoelectric pick up and a tuner, I would've add it to my sizable guitar collection. Good job, Kremona.

                I love the cedar top version. I bought this for my first guitar and I find the tone and projection to be sweet. Nice action on the board and no fret issues. It is light and easy to play. I compared it to about six other guitars when buying and it really stood out. Very reasonable price for the product.
