I love this guitar! It

I love this guitar! It has a beautiful, warm, round tone that's perfectly balanced from string to string. It's impeccably made and quite beautiful to look at. The attention to detail is perfect...really, without a flaw. I wanted a nylon string guitar with a neck more like a steel string acoustic and this is definitely it. It's very playable for a steel string player. Highly recommended.

downina, guitar

claimed it was, set up. ended up setting it up my self. baffled why it was 1/4 onch away from frets at 12th fret. ive, set countless guitars, up, and, had them, set up never have i seen such a bad set up, dont be fooled by them claiming there set up is proffesional, after speaking with them about the set it i realized there just salespeople on a phone with no idea what there on about. i asked how can, it be set up if its so far from frets. id had electrics put in by them so my guess is they didnt rub bridge down to compensate for electronics, i asked for a, dofferent options on why and they just babvled a load of gibberish. guitar is fine now but go to shop and make, sure its right. i bought on line so be aware if they claim to do a profesional set up. i wont use them again. i dont like excuses and bullshit and there full of it

Hi Lee. Desperately sad to see this damning review of what is not only my personal favourite nylon string guitar, but also came personally recommended by and made by Stan himself.

Actions on nylon strung guitars are set exactly to each customers personal specification and in the absence of this we will set the guitar up to a standard we believe is appropriate.

Nylon strung guitars are generally set up slightly higher than steel strung or electric guitars and I am sorry despite not having any specific guidance from yourself that you felt the action wasnt to your liking.

We offer a 6 and 12 month check and reset free of charge and we welcome you back to have this adjusted any time.

For anyone reading this review - this is an incredible, World Class nylon string guitar and should anyone have any issue with the playability of a guitar we supply - we are here waiting to help in the highly unlikely event a problem should occur.

Beautiful! Amazing sound - AMAZING SOUND!

This is a truly beautiful guitar! I did not know about Dowina guitars at all, I called Richards guitars for some advice on upgrading my classical guitar. One of Richard's gurus directed me to this beauty. It is a little different from a traditional classical guitar - particularly the slightly narrower neck - however after a few hours - I've not noticed this. What has blown me away is the sound quality - and the fact that even when playing acoustically, the amplitude of each string is pretty much equal. I've been so used to alternating pressure on the wound and nylon strings - I don't know how this guitar does it - but it's amazing! Astonishing quality and sound. Combining this with the service from Richard's Guitars - makes this a no brainer!!!!
