I've owned this guitar for almost 2 years now, and I must say it's quite a treat to play -especially when I think of how (relatively) little it cost. The neck is a bit narrower than most classical guitars (nice for my smallish hands) and has a really nice tone for an instrument at this price point. I tried several guitars costing as much as $450 and really couldn't convince myself that they sounded any better than this one- and most had wider necks. The one real drawback is the lack of a battery compartment (as others have noted, you access the battery inside the guitar by reaching through the soundhole- what brilliant engineer came up with that idea ?!) I don't use it plugged in, but the one time I tried it, it sounded fine. The tuners are OK; not the best but I've found no reason to change them.All in all a great value. If you don't need / want / or can't afford a higher-end instrument, this one will do you just fine!

Do yourself a favor and buy something else
This thing will not come close to playing in tune. I should have took a tuner with me when I tried it. Sound is passable but the intonation is terrible. I have made a new bridge for it and that helps some but it is still bad. If you only play in first position or in general close to the nut you won't notice it, but venture up the neck and it's a complete pile! To quantify the intonation problem, it seems the 3 treble strings are close to correct intonation, but the wound strings are flat as you go up. I guess if you're into dissonance, this is the guitar to use...ha!

By the way, the pickup, is horrible. All of these piezo pickups sound bad to me, but this one is particularly stinky. It is also horribly unbalanced in output from low to high strings. I didn't try it plugged in when I bought it, because I didn't care about the "plugged in" sound anyways......but make no mistake, it is horrible. If you want to record this, the cheapest dynamic microphone will sound worlds better than this pickup will.

On the positive side, it plays well action wise without buzzes. So if you are going to play near the nut only and don't care about plugging it in, it's passable. One last thing, I ended up removing the electronics because the cabling buzzed sympathetically with certain notes, which sounded cheezy when recording.

Battery!!

By apostle-DP8bY

from RI

Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

I recieved this guitar as a christmas gift this year. I played it for 2 days unplugged and thought the sound was pretty good considering the price of the guitar. Once I went to band practice and tried to plug it in it didn't work. So I figuered it was the batt. When I went to change the battery I discovered the battery could only be accessed by reaching into the sound hole. Not only is the batt in the sound hole it is a 9v battery with clip on contacts. So you have to try to unclip and pull out the batt all from inside of the guitar. It took me about 20 mintues to take the batt out and the effort of my entire band. Once the batt was out it took about an hour to get the next batt. in just to discover the guitar still didn't work. Who ever designed this guitar needs to go back to the drawing board. I sent it back and got an ibanez

A perfectly servicable beginning guitar but...

By Hoopskidoodle

from Michigan

See all my reviews

Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

First off, the guitar sounds thin. Even compared with a Ibanez GA6CE. This is to be expected as it has a thin body. It sounds better when plugged in and mic-ed. It plays well. It didn't require a lot of set-up. I did change the stock strings for a set of D'Adario extra hard tension one. I also lowered the action by filing down the saddle a bit. This wasn't necessary. It's just that I'm not a classical player, and I prefer a very low string action.The neck is ever so slightly thinner than typical 2" nut-width classical guitars. However, it's thicker than most "hybrid" nylon-string guitars aimed at electric guitar player.There are only two things about this guitar that really annoy me. The first is the battery issue. The battery is (barring the use of a router) only accessible through the sound hole. If you are a man with large hands, you WILL have to remove at least three strings to get to the battery. I cannot imagine why the manufacturer wouldn't have made the batter hole big enough to slide out the whole EQ assembly.The second annoyance, and this is more a matter of opinion, is that the neck of a thin bodied single cutaway guitar, like this one, should really join the body at the 14th fret. Having it join at the 12th fret limits the advantage of having a cutaway, as it is difficult to reach the upper frets.I plan to sell this guitar and a similar one with a more accessible battery and 14 frets clear of the body.

24 Hours

By Anonymous

Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

I recieved this guitar about 24 hours ago. I got it, tuned it up, and I couldn't put it down. When I recieved it, the battery inside was loose. I had to detune the sting ALOT in order to get to the battery, because the preamp wouldn't lift all the way out of the body. Aftr I fixed that, all of a sudden the electronics stopped working. I tried the battery and it was fine, but I finally figured out that one of the wires became disconnected. I plugged that back in and now it works perfectly! The sound is great and the features are awesome. Cutaway and peizo! Overall a FABULOUS guitar for the price. I could only put it down to write this review! Buy it!

Great guitar...until it breaks

By Jeff-2zT07

from Seattle, Wa

Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

When I first ordered the guitar, it didn't work. I checked the battery and it was fine. Accessing it through the soundhole was a major hassle. When it still wasn't working, I sent it back. Musiciansfriend sent me another one that worked for about 2 weeks until the same thing happened. Again, the battery isn't the problem. I don't reccomend this guitar on the grounds that it won't work.

Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

This guitar has such a warm sound when plugged in. its also very thin so its easily playable. The scale of the guitar is a little small, it only has 18 frets but the sound makes up for it, it has a very good preamp. I haven't played live with it yet but it sounds excellent on all the recordings i've done with it so far. The stock strings that come with it are just ok, but if you replace the strings it plays like a dream! So I give this guitar 5 stars! if your looking for a great classical, you can't lose with this one!

Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

Ok, the sound of this guitar is not bad; it is actually good if you compare it to other brands, only the typical brands like, Ibanez, Yamaha, and all those guitars. But if you compare the guitar with a Cordoba it has nothing to do. And if you want the guitar to play classic guitar you should consider a better guitar stay away from the U.S. brands. Get a Portuguese, Spanish or a Mexican one; they know how to make acoustic guitars. This guitar has a real problem is the battery. It?s inside the guitar. If you think it?s not a problem, trust me o this one it is. but if you are just learning this is a great guitar. I had to return mine because it did work and I decide to spend a little more money to get a better guitar.

Good guitar with one BIG drawback

By JamesWJ71

Ask me a question

Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

I have played this guitar many times. The sound is quite nice to my ear. I must say that I have played less expensive nylon-string guitars that sounded better (but they were strictly acoustic) and I have played more expensive guitars that sounded better plugged in. But, if you are looking for an inexpensive nylon string electric/ acoustic then this is a good choice. There is the one BIG draw back of the battery being located inside of the guitar. The fact that the battery must be accessed though the sound hold seems to be a major pain. I believe that it would be best to remove all or most of the strings for changing the battery (yes you could loosen them but if you have fat hands you may have trouble enough getting your hand to the battery without the strings in the way).

Great for a beginner

By Elmo

from Maryville, TN

Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

I have Ovations, Fenders, Epiphones, Washburns, even a Rogue or two. This is the guitar I practice on most. Lightweight, easy to play, I highly recommend this guitar to the beginning student. It is a bit easier on the fingertips being nylon strings, and may encourage a student to keep at it. I have a friend who wishes she started on nylon. Cheap? Yes. But great for the price, with a nice mellow tone. Not a toy. Being nylon stringed, I did have to do a lot of tuning until the strings settled down. But that may be typical with nylon.
