Overview

The LC200SCE was built for the discerning modern classical player. This premium acoustic-electric cutaway classical takes the Lucero value proposition to new heights; its combination of Indian rosewood back and sides, along with a solid select red cedar top provides luxurious warm tone, accentuated bottom end, and crisp highs. The rosewood headstock overlay matches the richness of the back and sides for a high-end look, while classic touches like rear marquetry inlays, gold tuners with pearloid keys, and multi-ply top binding complete the package.

The LC200SCE also features a Fishman Clasica preamp system which offers 2 bands of EQ, a phase switch to control feedback, and a built-in chromatic tuner to keep your playing tight and in tune on any stage. Case sold separately.

Fab

Comments about Lucero LC200SCE Rosewood/Cedar Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Classical Guitar:

I found almost no reviews for this guitar, but noted many online music stores selling it for more. I took a chance, knowing I could return it. Out of the box: Stunning! Beautiful fit and finish. I really can't say enough about it. Now for the sound: First I changed the strings to D'Addario EJ45C Pro-Arte Composite Classical Guitar Strings, hard Tension. After tuning over the course of a few days and letting the strings stretch and the guitar adjust to the new tension, the timbre just kept getting better, as well the pitch retention (of course). Now this guitar sings! The harmonics are vibrant! Dynamics wide and easy to control. Action, after making one small truss rod adjustment, low with no fret buzz (unless I really twang it). For the price I couldn't be happier. Now about me,so you'll know where this review is coming from: I'm a 63 year old amateur guitar player, but I have been around live music most of my life. I have a BA in Music, have played the trumpet in a myriad of groups and styles (jazz, symphonic, musicals, opera, etc.), and am credentialed to teach Music K-14. Buy this guitar, and I think you will be very, very happy.

Excellent value for the price.

By Francisco Trevino

from Collierville, TN

Comments about Lucero LC200SCE Rosewood/Cedar Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Classical Guitar:

I was concerned about the price of this guitar, I was not sure I would get something good for such a low price. I have played classical guitar for many years but never had the chance of buying a rosewood guitar before and I was very exited. So I went to the store, touched it, played it, I loved the sound and quality. That was about 6 months ago, I saw the review of the exploded one and I went to check mine immediately. It was fine. I recently changed the strings for a low tension ones, they sound magnificent. I live in Tennessee which is very humid, but I haven't had any problem, I think he had bad luck.

6 years later

By Thomas Hamilton

Comments about Lucero LC200SCE Rosewood/Cedar Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Classical Guitar:

I bought this guitar 6 years ago, (although mine is an LC 200CE) this has been the best purchase I have ever made. I had a budget of about 1000 when I originally went researching for an entry level acoustic to Spanish classical playing. I had my heart set on a Martin, but couldn't find one in my price range that had what I was looking for. In my opinion, this guitar sounds better than anything under 1500. Hooked up with the right strings, this has a rich mid-tone, deep bass, and a loud crisp high end. It has a natural harmonic ring that I haven't found in anything near its price range. I'm still impressed with it, and it just keeps sounding better. One of my favorite features of this guitar is the width of the neck. Coming from electric guitars, I had a hard time transitioning to fast playing on the increased distance between the strings. The lucero neck is narrow enough to speed through an arpeggio and wide enough to flamenco pick and string bend. The stock pickup was surprisingly good for basic home recording, but I ultimately upgraded to a clip on mic. On a side note- when I first bought my lucero, I went home and the pickup did not work, so I went back to Guitar Center, and they found me a new one at another store, and gave me a discount for the trouble. Got home, and the new one is still working at 100%, very satisfied customer.

You get what you pay for

By matt nasi

Comments about Lucero LC200SCE Rosewood/Cedar Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Classical Guitar:

This guitar was such a disappointment. I bought it because I liked the feel and the pickup sounded pretty good. After playing it at home, I more noticed a buzz I thought might be indicative of classicals as this was my first of this kind of acoustic. I shrugged it off. A few days later I came home to find the guitar had EXPLODED! The bridge had burst off the body and was hanging in my humidified room, tethered to the strings like a hangman's noose (cue dramatic music). Horrified was an understatement. I brought the guitar to a repair shop for a re-gluing. I thought the dry climate in Colorado was an initial suspect, but the repairman said the glue applied in the factory was the cheapest adhesive he'd ever seen. I paid him and brought the guitar home. The next day I realized the buzz had turned to a roar and was convinced the repairman had made an error in the repair. I brought the guitar back to him and he noticed there was a loose brace in the body of the guitar which he referred to as a "manufacturer's defect" which was likely to have been a culprit in the EXPLOSION. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any clue of Luceros warranty until I had already had the guitar repaired which voided it. Lesson learned. You get what you pay for.

Doesn't live up to the hype

By codewizard

from Denver, CO

Comments about Lucero LC200SCE Rosewood/Cedar Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Classical Guitar:

I was looking for a guitar that was a step up from my Taiwanese Yammaha G55A, which has been in the family for 20+ years. Specifically I was looking for something that had more clarity in the low and mid ranges. This certainly had the clarity, but sounded like a tin can guitar. Not to say the sound was completely horrible, this guitar would be ideal for someone just getting into classical playing. But the laminate can't hold a match to the warmth and range of my Yammaha whose value is probably a 4th of this Lucero. I think the metallic sound was hidden under the humidifier's vibration inside the guitar center I went to. After playing these two guitars side by side, I would say most of the reviews online are staged and or are by people who have never played any other classical guitars. Aesthetically this is a very attractive guitar, but it just wasn't enough to win me over. I'll be returning mine tomorrow and saving up for something nicer.

A "Wow-for-the-Price" Guitar

By Rob

from Oakley, CA

Comments about Lucero LC200SCE Rosewood/Cedar Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Classical Guitar:

I've been playing guirar for over 30 years, mostly steel string "fingerstyle." A newly-developed allergy to nickle gave me cause to switch to nylon strings. I did a lot of research and played many guitars before settling on the LC200SCE. I was about to buy a Cordoba C5CE when I decided to try the Lucero. The Cordoba is nice, but the Lucero's tone won me over immediately. It must be the combination of the solid cedar top and the rosewood back/sides. It's a warm, but clear, sound. I bought mine from a nearby GC, took it home, changed the strings to D'Addario EJ45 normal tension, and did some minor set up (get a tech to do this if you can). This is one of the nicest-sounding, easiest-playing instruments I've had the pleasure to play. The tuners aren't top-of-the-line, but they are sturdy and functional. The built in tuner is great (especially after changing strings). I've had my LC200SCE for about two months now, and I'm very pleased. As long as the bridge stays put (a concern some have had), I'll be a happy picker for some time to come!
