I've owned this guitar for two months now. Is it the greatest guitar I've ever played? No, but it's as fine a $200 guitar as I've ever played. The slightly thinner body is comfortable without sacrificing much in the way of tone. The neck is fantastic and is this guitar's best feature! I've always had problems with the width & thickness of classical guitars, but this one, while having a properly wide fingerboard, is not as thick. Makes for easier barre chording, etc. I was not looking for a guitar with a pickup/preamp, but I've tried it out and it sounds pretty good (with a lot of amp EQ). Not traditional in looks, but a very pretty guitar nonetheless. Overall, at $200(and well beyond!) you won't find a nicer classical / nylon stringed guitar.

Before I had to chang e the battery on the pickup, I would have given a different review. However, it is IMPOSSIBLE to reach the battery through the hole! Took it back to Guitar Center and everyone(including tech guy) gave up!So be aware you are really buying an acoustic only.

    Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

    The finish on this guitar is similar to my Les Paul Custom. Shiny (nearly piano lacquer black) with creme binding (not white). It looks great and when it arrive there wasn't a single mark on it. Very impressive.

    If I am decoding the serial number correctly this guitar could have been made 18-24 months ago. So the strings are old. No big deal I will change them because they are behaving like old strings.

    I will agree with other reviews on one thing. The battery is in a "less than ideal" position. But I think I can manage without too much trouble with it comes time to change it out.

    The sound, both plugged in and unplugged is better than I had expected. Some reviews had complained about this but I and certain that the sound is at least appropriate (more likely better) for a thinline at this price.

    This is my third nylon string guitar. In my opinion, the quality of this guitar far exceeds what I expected. I will play this instrument for many many years.

    LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway not bad

    By stratlady

    from Arizona

    Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

    I bought this at brick and mortar store after direct a vs b with an ibanez thinline. It sounded better tone acoustically and amplified with an acoustasonic. It can't compare in sound quality to the Cordoba I record with, but it is expendable/inexpensive enough for me to use at Coffee House Jams where I am donated my time and not getting paid. Don't know why there are problems with others with tuning and intonation it's typical in accuracy of classical guitars and once you settle on string type (I use composites hard)it's simple enough to make a perfect compensated saddle.... or just buy one generically compensated for classical.The original strings are usable but not good ones. The battery "problem" isn't really a problem! FWIW you can loosen and untie classical strings and reuse them over and over, It's easier than changing batteries in my (ec boost kit)strat (no screwdriver needed). The piezo is typically quacky and I miss the additional condenser mic and blend of my studio guitar, but it's easily fixed with eq-ing the PA. The tuners look cheap, but are still working fine although will eventually probably have to be replaced. The finish and wood will withstand minor dings and spills.

    NOT THAT GOOD.

    Pros

      Cons

      • Fake Wood Appearance
      • RIP OFF
      • Strings Are Not That Good
      • Stupid Battery Placement
      • Too expensive
      • Tunes Out To Fast
      • Ugly appearance

      Best Uses

      • Just Good For Practicing

      Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      This guitar is not really good at all. Period. Strings go out of tune so fast. I tuned it perfect and just played it for like an hour. As I put it away and came back an hour later; The strings were out of tune by almost half a step back.

      The guitar don't really have a good appearance. The black finish is good but what I hate was that the outline that goes around the body appear white in pictures. But in person it's actually a dead type of yellow color.

      The heads of the tuner are plastic and about everything in this guitar isn't even 100% wood.

      The sound isn't good at all as well. It has a nasty flat sound to it even when it's fully tuned.

      Also, for some reason the stupid 6th string keeps making an ugly sound as if it's scrapping off the neck (In which, the guitar neck didn't have a hump or a bow). And the 1st string has a very flat sound out of all of 'em.

      Point blank here is that this guitar is garbage. The only thing it's probably useful for is just practicing at home. And that's about it.

      Do yourself a better favor and buy another guitar.

      Oh, and one more thing.

      THIS GUITAR IS OVERRATED!!!!!(Good thing I bought off on Black Friday)...

      THIS GUITAR IS WORTH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH LESS!!!!!

      the battery is where?

      By roy jiminez

      from corpus christi, texas

      Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      The playability is good on this guitar for the price, but this guitar is thin and has to be amplified to get a good sound. The problem with this guitar is, the battery for the pickup is inside the guitar. You have to take off the strings, reach inside through the sound hole and if you have big hands like i do it is a big hassle. It is bad enough putting new strings on a classical guitar without having to try to fish a battery out of it.

      Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      This guitar has such a warm sound when plugged in. its also very thin so its easily playable. The scale of the guitar is a little small, it only has 18 frets but the sound makes up for it, it has a very good preamp. I haven't played live with it yet but it sounds excellent on all the recordings i've done with it so far. The stock strings that come with it are just ok, but if you replace the strings it plays like a dream! So I give this guitar 5 stars! if your looking for a great classical, you can't lose with this one!

      Partial solution to the battery problem / My overall review

      By Mitch Wiedemann

      from Ithaca, NY

      Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      I tried a number of classical guitars at GC before I bought this Lucero LCT-250. Other more expensive guitars had better acoustic sound quality (the Cordoba C5-CE, for example) but the Lucero had a very good price and a pleasant sound (acoustic and amplified) for my purposes. I really like the feel of the Lucero's neck and fretboard, and the slim body depth is very comfortable. The action is nice and low (lower than the Cordoba) and I like that too. There is no getting around the fact that the battery placement inside the guitar body is a stupid design decision. That's the only reason I'm giving my review three stars instead of four. However, what I did to make this less of a hassle is go to a electronic parts store and buy two 9-volt battery snap connectors, and wired them together to make an "extension cord" for the battery. Once I got my extender in place, I can slack the strings, reach in and unclip the battery, and pull it out of the sound hole to connect a new one. Then pop it back in place. It's still hassle, but better than the brain-dead original design. I hope this idea is helpful to others.

      take a tuner with you if you decide to buy this

      By Gary Rusk

      from Potato Land

      Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      Do yourself a favor and buy something else
      This thing will not come close to playing in tune. I should have took a tuner with me when I tried it. Sound is passable but the intonation is terrible. I have made a new bridge for it and that helps some but it is still bad. If you only play in first position or in general close to the nut you won't notice it, but venture up the neck and it's a complete pile! To quantify the intonation problem, it seems the 3 treble strings are close to correct intonation, but the wound strings are flat as you go up. I guess if you're into dissonance, this is the guitar to use...ha!

      By the way, the pickup, is horrible. All of these piezo pickups sound bad to me, but this one is particularly stinky. It is also horribly unbalanced in output from low to high strings. I didn't try it plugged in when I bought it, because I didn't care about the "plugged in" sound anyways......but make no mistake, it is horrible. If you want to record this, the cheapest dynamic microphone will sound worlds better than this pickup will.

      On the positive side, it plays well action wise without buzzes. So if you are going to play near the nut only and don't care about plugging it in, it's passable. One last thing, I ended up removing the electronics because the cabling buzzed sympathetically with certain notes, which sounded cheezy when recording.

      The sound produced by the guitar is very amazing for the cost of it. However, I'm not very happy with the string that comes with it. Its old and not usable. I'd to change it right away and it sounds just nice right after.

      Great Classical Guitar For The Money

      from Cedar Rapids, Iowa

      Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      Went to Guitar Center knowing that I wanted an electric classical guitar...was thinking Takamine or Yamaha...but this black beauty does everything I could ask for in the more expensive models. So, if you want to spend more...it's your cash, but this guitar won't let you down. Buy it!

      Comments about Lucero LCT250CE Thinline Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar:

      I like this guitar. I bought for myself on Christmas and I was playing it all the time. The sound is not that deep but it is because it is a thinline cutaway guitar. It is very Portable and you can take any were. The only 2 big problem was that 2 day later i hooked it up to a pa system and no sound was coming out. it look like the pick up mest up and I also hate changing the battery. I exchange for another on because i still like the guitar.
