Here is a picture of the newest guitars for my collection. I can’t say enough about these two guitars, but let me say a few things. First of all, I have always wanted an Entrada with two pickups, and when this one became available, I had to have it. It plays like a dream guitar. Great neck, incredible action!!
The Kent Armstrong pickups are very responsive and create a very warm sound responding to this body. The color of this guitar is amazing. I do not have this color on any of the guitars in my collection. This guitar is perfectly balanced and the gold hardware completes the package. My bandmates love the look and sound of this guitar and I couldn’t agree more. Now onto the solid body version.
I had heard months ago that there might be a solid body Conti in the works, and when I received an email that only five would be created, again, I had to have one. This guitar utilizes the same neck as my Entrada, so the amazing feel and action was already in the package. Once again, the Kent Armstrong pickups respond well, and as I was working through the possible sounds, I was remarkably surprised at how hot these pickups get when in an overdrive state. The sound is most acceptable. You can also hear the audible changes by adjusting the tone controls on this guitar. Again, the gold hardware is a very nice touch, and although the metallic purple was not my first choice, it stands out big time under the stage lights. I have had numerous comments about this guitar and since it is part of a very limited collection (#1 of 5), I am always eager to talk about it. Robert, you have created a masterpiece.
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to your craft. I fully expect to play both of these guitars on my upcoming gigs ( I usually bring four different guitars to each gig as required by the music). Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of the Robert Conti Guitar Universe.
