Esteve Classical Guitar Model 7SR
The Esteve Classical Guitar Model 7SR is the first in Manuel Adalid’s line of All Solid Wood Classical Guitars. Again, these are a truly superb line of guitars built by Manuel and his team of luthiers.
Clearly the build is superior, with solid tops from Canada or Germany (Western Red Cedar or German Spruce), with African Ebony Fingerboards layered upon an African Mahogany Neck and all solid East Indian Rosewoods for the Back and Sides, specially selected by Manuel.
The sound has a strong Spanish characteristic, while the playability is surprisingly easy. Thinly lacquered, as are all of Manuel’s guitars up to the 9C/B, the guitar is very vibrant against the body, while projecting quite nicely, suitable for recitals and performance. Another outstanding value from Manuel Adalid and the Esteve family of Spanish classical guitars.
The price includes a Guardian Black or Kenny Hill Custom HSC and Ground Shipping to the 50US
Please note that I have 1 Spruce 7SR left, it is a factory 2nd, with 2 marks on the bass side of the upper bout. It is discounted $200 to $895. The marks are tough to see but they exist. Smallish, like a thumb nail mark that went into the finish. Otherwise perfect. You will find the discounted price in the selection, when you choose the Spruce option. Thank you kindly. Rich
Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?). My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar. I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything. Thanks. Rich
Please NOTE that photos of all “production guitars” are stock photos, taken randomly for our numerous selection of guitars, whether they be from Kenny Hill – Esteve – Adalid or others. It is virtually impossible and arduous to photograph each of our available production guitars. I am, however, happy to take a few photos for you of any particular guitar with which your are interested.
Handcrafted instruments are photographed and listed individually, usually identified by a serial number, date and or some other combination.
