Caballero Principio 7/8 Solid Cedar Acoustic Guitar, Natural
Item ID: CA-CM-7/8
List Price: $510.95
The beginning [Spanish. Principio] of all guitar playing needs a good but affordable instrument.
The PRINCIPIO instruments from Caballero by MR are perfect for this, because they promise an absolutely amazing price/performance ratio.
"Amazing" really is the right word in this case, because the guitars have an exceptionally good sound for this price range, are very light but nevertheless very stable.
This is primarily due to the special construction of the neck made of okoumé wood. Its reinforcement by two feather-light carbon rods provides special stability in this sensitive area.
The guitar body is assembled according to traditional construction methods: Solid cedar is used for the top, and the back and sides are made of Sapele. The water-based eco-matt lacquer provides a pleasant feel and also contributes significantly to the open sound character of the instruments, as the open-pored treatment allows the wood to vibrate much more freely.
The visual qualities of the instruments are further emphasized by the wooden mosaic soundhole rosette and the gold-plated machine head.
German-made Hannabach 600HT nylon strings with carbon G3 string are facto-ry-fitted and perfectly round off the sound concept of this series.
The purely acoustic models of the PRINCIPIO series are available in the four standard sizes 4/4, 7/8, 3/4 and 1/2.
