Selina, Jess and I are all right hand guitarists and therefore this review of the Left Handed Estudio guitar has been taken from the same right handed version.


For me, some guitars really stand out, and the Carrillo Estudio is one of them.

I had the pleasure of playing the cedar version of this guitar last year and I was incredibly impressed by the quality and character of sound. My enjoyment in playing the spruce top is no different in this respect. Her top end in particular is bursting with a bright, lively sound, and I haven’t even finished tuning yet!

I love the tone of the Estudio’s treble strings so much I start by playing a single line melody - the top line of Purcell’s Chacony for quartet, and I am delighted by her incredible responsiveness! Her diversity of tone allows for a lot of emotion, and her dynamics are impressive particularly at this level. She can be very reserved, but when I push the extrovert comes out and she is very loud! Her tone is uniquely interesting; as can be expected her tone is not as ‘round’ as her cedar sister but very substantial, fresh and direct, with a fullness that will only continue to bloom as she is played in. The excellent Carrillo craftsmanship is evident in this guitar; she will definitely carry one lucky student through and keep on giving as she is pushed.

I play Birds Flew Over the Spire and the brightness of the guitar makes it easy to separate voices but the sound is full enough to convey depth. She is full of energy and her sound is fresh and crisp but also very resonant, so the campanella sounds of the piece ring out with clarity. She responds musically to volume changes and is very easy to play; these are both important when finding your feet as a musician.

It is a joy to discover how much this guitar can really give. She is incredibly responsive to musicality and she rings out with a pure, clear and direct tone that is easily manipulated. It is easy to talk through this guitar and she is exciting to play; as her tone develops as the spruce is played in she has even more potential. My notes on this guitar are extensive and I could quite possibly write an essay, but I will wrap it up by saying the Estudio is really something special and excellent value for money.
