Comments about Kremona Soloist S62C Classical Acoustic Guitar:
Got this guitar a few weeks ago and it is pretty good. Just a couple of criticisms. Decent quality guitar overall but the varnish/lacquer used was a little cheap, it scratches very easily and when I received the guitar it had scratches because of how it rubbed against the packing material used to ship it. Aesthetically there were some other imperfections in the finish. And the finish of the fingerboard was streaky and uneven. The wood around where the frets were inserted wasn't smoothed out that well and part of it look a little splintery. I wish they had taken the time to clean up these little things because it seems like they were in the rush.
But the guitar is very playable and comfortable, it's got a 50mm wide fretboard (narrower than the standard 52mm or 2 inch fretboard of a standard sized classical guitar). It's got a shorter scale because its a 3/4 so it's scaled down. The body is scaled down too so that's a little bit a of a drawback if you want a full bodied sound but it still sounds really great. Very loud and it resonates and sustains well. It's a great sounding guitar.
I had heard so much about the Kremona guitars and their high quality for their price points so I was really excited to get this. I wasn't blown away considering it was a couple hundred dollars more than the Cordobas, Yamahas and other student level beginner guitars that you can get. And it's a 3/4. But it was decent. Sometimes Kremonas can be hit or miss, consistency in the production of their guitars can be an issue. Sometimes they are superior and sometimes they have defects and aren't as well built. I would suggest that if you want this Kremona or any Kremona that you try to play on in person first so that you can gauge the quality and make sure that it sounds good and is well built. If you can't play one in person, I suggest that you buy it from a place that takes returns in the event that it doesn't meet your expectations. For the meantime I am keeping my Kremona because it's a good size for me (I'm only 5'1" so the 3/4 or senorita sized guitars suit me well). I would recommend it if the one you get is built well but like I mentioned, sometimes there are quality control and consistency issues even between guitars of the same exact model.
