Sound — 8
Being an experienced classical player this guitar is excellent for very small or private shows. This guitar molds to your own classical style in a very broad way. It holds great tone and has a great lead or backround effect with another classical. Excellent for duos.
Overall Impression — 8
I play a classical style and this guitar is perfect for me. I don't only play classical though I also play lead and blues. This guitar is great for a broad range of styles as most classicals are but if it goes higher than 19th fret than you might have some trouble. If I lost this guitar I'd go straight out and buy it again. I love the fact that on the higher classical frets (15, 16, 17 etc) the sound quality and feel seems to shine through. I personally have a Fender classical (cheap and rough) and another Admira. This guitar outplays them both in every catogory. Great guitar!
Reliability & Durability — 8
With good care this guitar with get better and better forever. It has the distinct thing of a great classical and that is with growing of age there is growing of value. The guitar with hold in a show but there is no volume or controls of any sort so there is no amplification.
Action, Fit & Finish — 5
With this guitar you get what you pay for, and it isnt a finish. It has beautiful woods but no finish gloss coat. With this guitar your paying for the sound and beauty of guitar but the finish brings the value of it down.
