Buzzy and string slapping against frets


from North Carolina

Verified Buyer

Comments about Manuel Rodriguez Cabellero 8S Solid top Classical Guitar:

Cheaply made. Does not produce a clear tone on 2nd and 1st strings above 8th fret due to strings slapping against the frets. 6th string buzzes on most lower frets.
I was really hopeful for several students who needed the 7/8 size, but will choose a different brand.
