These Kremona guitars are made in Bulgaria by a company that has been making fine musical instruments for 100 years. This guitar is very impressive indeed, with excellent tone and sustain and phenomenal volume, probably due to the solid Rosewood back and sides. The quality of workmanship is superb and it seems solid as a rock. There is no string buzz whatsoever and it plays beautifully. The Fiesta is comparable to guitars costing several times as much. Buy one before they're "discovered" and the price rises closer to it's real value.

I want to preface this review by saying that Guitar Center was wonderful to deal with as usual. I had been researching this guitar since early last year and was impressed with the stellar reviews. I finally had sufficient funds to purchase the Fiesta FC and tried it at the store comparing it against a number of higher priced guitars. Unfortunately, the store was quite noisey that day so I couldn't hear as well as I did when I got home and played it. There was a pronounced buzz on the E,A,D,&G strings from the first to about eighth frets. I called the store and was told that they would call me when another Fiesta FC came in so I could exchange it. A month later I got the call and went to exchange the Fiesta. The second guitar had the same problem but only on the E,A&D strings. They then ordered me one to be sent directly to my house. The third guitar arrived in perfect condition. After letting it acclimate to the temperature and humidity in my house, I tried the guitar only to have the exact same problem with the buzz even on open strings. I took it to the store and had the tech look at it. He too seemed a little perplexed because everything looked right. I had a Classical guitar instructor try it and he heard even more buzz than my ears could detect. I e-mailed KremonaUSA and they said they weren't aware of this being a common problem. After thoughtful consideration, I decided to return the Fiesta and continue my search for another classical guitar. I was so dissappointed because the craftsmanship was beautiful and the sound so much richer than anything else anywhere near the same price range. I would have rated this guitar five stars if it had not been for this seemingly consistant flaw.

Happy Owner

By G.V. Narsed

from San Francisco,CA

Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

I picked up this guitar from my local store, after a friend's recommendation. I had the chance to play my friend's guitar a few times, and really liked the sound as well as the feel of the fretboard and string action. I felt the guitar is a really good deal at the listed price, so I decided to buy one for my own collection. I've enjoyed it so much so far, that it has become my main guitar. It seems to have a solid build and good quality, so I am expecting to play it for a while. I also like the fact that it was handcrafted, as opposed so much of everything else that is available nowadays. Overall, I would recommend it for the serious classical guitar player.

AWESOME!!

By Juno

from Houston, TX

Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

I first bought a cordoba, but I decided to return it to get something else. I was playing all the guitars that were available and I had my eyes on this guitar and I had to have it... Even though it was pretty expensive for me, I convinced my dad to buy it for me and I LOVE THIS GUITAR. It sounds so beautiful. If anyone has any questions feel free to e mail me please

gorgeous sound, easy on hands

By Joe

from Alexandria, VA

Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

I originally went in with the wife on my birthday to purchase a Classical to replace a wonderful instrument I'd picked up in Costa Del Sol in 1998 that had cracked. We were prepared to drop up to $1,500 on a new guitar, and I tried several other well-established brands of Spanish guitars that were quite a bit more expensive. None of them had the rich, deep but clean sound that this guitar had. Perhaps it's because my other guitar is a Martin Dreadnought. At any rate, the action on the neck is perfect, and it's beautifully made. No regrets.

Great Guitar

By GTL

from Oaklyn, NJ

Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

The quality of this guitar was greater than expected even in view of the ratings. It is beautifully crafted with a cedar top and rosewood back and sides. The finish is excellent. The frets are well dressed, and bridge and nut well formed. The guitar is easy to play, even for me, someone more accustomed to electric guitars. It has a wonderful voice, and intonation is spot on.

BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK!!! HANDS DOWN!!!

By Paul C

from NEW YORK

Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

I went to GC almost 1 months ago to looking for a classical guitar. I tried guitars from cordoba and rodriguez because those are the brands that I am familiar with. The Rodriguez are very expensive and there are some that cost less than $1000 dollars but they are made in overseas and the sound is not good!. The Rodriguez sound that I like cost a ton! WAY BEYOND MY PRICE RANGE! then I tried the CORDOBA C9, which has a nice sound for much less. I almost bought it! until a sales rep entered the room bringing a CLASSICAL GUITAR fresh from the box! It was a Kremona Orpheus Valley FC. It doesn't have a price tag yet at that time. So after he hanged the guitar I immediately TRIED IT! And WOW!!!! I was BLOWN AWAY!!! Tone is Clear, Warm (cedar wood) and LOUD! The way I want it! and the FINISH whew! I said to myself This must cost A LOT maybe $2000!!! So after I played and enjoyed it. I asked the sales rep and said it's this price, Wow Really? Only? hahaha. I went out of the store a happy man with a Brand New Classical Guitar!!! BUY THIS GUITAR!!! You Will not be disappointed!!! Just be sure to check for some smudges (chalk like),I found some on mine on the headstock . It's no big deal, the SOUND is what's important to me! :-) P.S. There is a FIESTA FS version for those who wants the crisp sound of the SPRUCE wood.

Highest Quality - Great Price!

By wesley beemer

from 20008

Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

I suggest you buy this guitar before the masses catch on and Kremona increases the price. The quality of the materials and workmanship are outstanding... it has a solid cedar top and rosewood back and sides for heaven's sake!! Look at the other guitars sold at around this price - most all of them have laminated back and sides. This guitar is built to last. It also has beautiful hardware and details. I spent about 2 months looking for the right guitar. My initial idea was to go with a Cordoba for around $500 or $600.. but I played this and knew it was a good investment. I also really like the fact that this guitar isn't made in China - we already buy enough from them. It's made in Bulgaria by a company that's been making high quality instruments since the 1924.

Great guitar and customer support from Kremona

By Dan Gietzen

from Breckenridge, CO

Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

This is the first nylon string guitar I've owned. I chose it because it was within my price range and because it also received excellent reviews - both on the Guitar Center site as well as others that I Googled. More than one reviewer wrote that the guitar played and sounded comparable to, or better than, much more expensive, "higher end", classical guitars. So, based on my online research alone, I decided to give it a try. I've had the Fiesta FS for about 2 weeks now and I love it. The wood tones - in terms of both sound quality and visual aesthetics and craftsmanship - are lush and beautiful. Being new to classical guitar I had a list of questions - some basic and some more technically advanced. I emailed Kremona on their website and within a few hours they called me back on the phone. I spoke with Nick for about 30 minutes, who was very helpful and generous with his time. He was very patient and friendly and I could tell that he was very genuine in his interest to help me. I am very happy with my Kremona guitar as well as with my experience interacting with their great customer support staff.

Unbelievable gem

By miriam ewaskio

from Dobbs Ferry

Comments about Kremona Fiesta FC Classical Guitar:

I recently bought this guitar for my son's 12th birthday.He's had an electric since age 8, but he wanted a classical too and he has been playing more since he recieved this gem. I spent time playing many guitars at GC, but this one beat many even twice its cost, or more. great resonance, long sustain, rich, mysterious overtones... feels like you're in the woods and you are... solid woods, top, sides and back!It is so beautiful to look at as well. You usually have to pay 1500 to 2000 for this quality.And they say solid woods get even better with time. My father was first generation Eukranian, so I have special feelings for countries which have gotten their freedom, which we have taken for granted for so long. So there is a double joy to bring these beautiful sounds to our home as well as to promote this Eastern European gem.
