Every guitar is given a thorough 18-point check including playing through every note, checking intonation, adjusting saddle & nut heights, checking neck relief, fret ends, tuners, finish, and more. You can rest assured that your guitar will be flawless or we'll replace it or refund it and cover all shipping charges. Also, unlike any of the large stores, all of our guitars are kept in a climate controlled room at 50% humidity so you don't have to worry about sharp frets, dried out fretboards, or hidden cracks in your guitar.

Handmade with selected woods, the 1C model is made with a solid Cedar top and Mahogany back and sides, beautiful woods that make up this Spanish guitar. The finish is careful to provide an elegant instrument. Elements such as nickel-plated machine heads, the fingerboard of Indian Rosewood, and the binding on top define a beautiful and stylized guitar.
