New classical guitar day. Today bought a real classic guitar, it's the Admira A5, solid Cedar top, Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck, with Rosewood fretboard. Not had it long enough, for me to give many comments, but up to present, I really like the sound/tone. I believe the guitar was made in Spain, and has a "Spanish heel construction. Sorry, but more comments to follow shortly. I have put the following YoutYou video on, untill I have time to post some photos.
I traded in the Fender Nylon strung guitar, for the Admira A5. The Fender was not a bad guitar, but the string spacing was very tight for a Nylon strung guitar. This Admira A5, has a nut width of 52mm/2 inches, and is very nice to play, the sound/tone, has also gone up in quality quite considerable, has more volume, and is of better quality compared to the Fender, but in all fairness, the Admira A5 was more expensive. 😀
The following YouTube video shows the guitar in more detail.
No I put endless strings on, and it made one hell of a difference for the good, compared to the old stock strings, that were on, but I didn't mention, the polishing of the frets, lemon oil to the fretboard and general clean and polish of the whole guitar. It's surprising just how unclean new guitars are.
I am putting the purchase of this guitar down to you, as you stated a classical guitar to be any good should be made in Spain, and I think you may have been right, it's just better in everyway, quality of build, materials of construction, sound/tone, volume and sustain, compared to the Fender Nylon strung guitar, the Fender was not bad, but the Admira A5, is just superior, but it should be, it cost more. 😀
