            I bought this model on sale a few months ago. It had action that was simply too high for playing in the upper registers but a simple sanding job on the saddle cured this rather quickly. It has a good bass response and while the neck is quite wide, the neck is nice and thin. If you don't mind a little tweaking, this is a really good guitar for the price. The specs on the website list a spruce top and mahogany sides while the box lsited a cedar top and walnut back/sides. This was of little concern to me as the guitar has a really good sound and that is what matter, right?

            I didn't expect much-just a little more .."solid cedar top" is made from at least 2 pieces plus extra support- does nothing for the sound. Tuning pegs have ugly seams and are the poorest quality I've ever seen. The binding looks like it was tinted with black marker in one section which then bled into finish. Strings are a full 5/8 in above fretboard at 10th fret. As said- I didn't expect much at that pr

                          really good for the price. the action was just right for a classical. built really great. took less than 3 minutes to tune it up and play. I have been playing since 1970.

                          Really wanted to like this guitar. The price point is terrific, and its a really good looker, with better than expected tone from the solid top spruce. But...

                          The first one i received had a warped top to the point the bridge was coming off. MF returned it cheerfully and sent me a new one...

                          The second one i received had the top in proper order, but the action was so high you could drive a truck through it. Sanded down the saddle as far as it could go and the action was still waaaay too high. There is no truss rod on this rig to adjust, so that's as good as it gets. Not good enough.

                          I think if you get lucky and get one that is close enough to setup out of the box, it could be a real winner, especially at the price it sells for. But that seems to be a luck of the draw at best.

                          Returned the second one, and am now shopping for something else.

                          Comments about Manuel Rodriguez Caballero 10 Classical Guitar:

                          The Cabellero Ten sounds absolutely wonderful. It has a big, resonant voice, it's surprisingly loud, it has nice clear note separation without booming or muddiness, and it just generally sounds beautiful, and very typically Spanish.

                          I don't know if the top was made from the finest AAA hand-selected spruce or what, but I can tell you that whatever wood they used is working. For a budget guitar this is amazing - it has the sound of a much, much more expensive instrument. Don't let the overseas manufacture dissuade you.

                          On the other hand, it has very high, difficult action (even for a classical guitar), uninspired looks, and a thick, glossy finish that will turn off classical purists. The action can be lowered, and the rest of my criticisms are just cosmetic. This is a great guitar and an incredible bargain.

                          I bought this for my 21 year old son who has lots of electrics but no classical nylon strings. This is the sort of guitar to take camping after you find a case for it. The strings are way too high! Next chance we get we are going loosen the strings and pull off and start sanding down the bridge saddle piece to lower the strings to get it to play decent.

                              The best Chinese made guitar I've ever played, nicely crafted. I must say though, that I got one with factory blemishes at initial order and Musicians Friend made the exchange prompt and effortless. This Caballero 10 has tone quality that is very close to my 1989 Manuel Rodriguez Model B made in Almansa, Spain (list 3,400.). You will not be disappointed with this guitar, esp. if you can get it on sale.
