Description

This particular Estudio is very special – because she is a cedar top her tone is beautifully warm, although she still has that Carrillo brightness. The result is a round, thick but direct and substantial sound.

The guitar is very responsive and easy to play with a great action, which makes movement very easy and so playing dynamically is incredibly fun! Her ‘warm brightness’ lends itself to Domeniconi’s Koyunbaba, the mysterious nature of which is easily conveyed through clarity and subtlety. When pushed, her top end is loud! As a result, the piece’s lyrical treble melodies cut through the accompaniment, and she gives them the gravity they require.

The D minor tuning of Koyunbaba highlights the expansive depth of the bass, a feature I also found playing Capricho Arabe. The harmonies of the accompanying chords are lovely and clear, and produce a wonderful variety of colours.

The contradictory nature of the Estudio’s tone means that as far as musicality is concerned she is a good all-rounder, and consequently a great advanced student guitar. She can do bright and lively but also can be incredibly soft and brooding, which creates a lovely contrast that is hard to find in a guitar at this price.

Other than her sound, the Estudio is set aside from her peers by her lovely matte finish, which again is rare on guitars at this level!

A fantastic guitar that will consistently perform well and keep on giving while the player advances.
