Esteve 1.4ST

Acoustic 6-String Guitar

Made by Esteve

Description Made in Spain. Solid Cedar top, bridge and fretboard in Rosewood, Mahogany neck, the rest in Sapele Mahogany. I think this is their cheapest entry level guitar.

Considering the price, this is an excellent guitar. Workmanship could be beter(Yamahas have better built) but she sounds, play and looks great.

Would I buy this guitar again if it were lost or stolen? Unless I have a bigger budget, YES! At this moment, I have yet to come across a better sounding guitar at this price.

I highly recommend this guitar if you have limited budget like me. The only problem is that supply is very limited.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $300.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Local music shop in Singapore
Features:
Very ordinary looking classical guitar, the one I have comes with chrome plated (I think) tuning machine head. Usual 6 strings, solid Cedar top, bridge and fretboard in Rosewood, Mahogany neck, the rest in Sapele Mahogany. I believe this is their cheapest entry level guitar.
Playability:
I have limited experience since I only started playing guitar a few months back. However this is my 2nd guitar and I find this Esteve much easier to play when compaired with my 1st (which is a piece of junk) and a few C-serise Yamahas my frends are playing.
Sound Quality:
I think for the price, I can only say sound quality is EXCELLENT! She sounded bright and warm. This baby will stand up well against Yamahas twice her price!
Durability:
Well, since I own the guitar only for two months, everything is still in place and do not seems to me anything is falling off. However, its worth mentioning that this piece I have is a display set (its the last they have) and the label in the guitar says its made in year 2000 (2 years ago!). Thus I believe she has been on the shelf for testing at least for months.
