August 2017 – After Receiving First Guitar (Blonde)
Robert, I just wanted you to know I have been enjoying your guitar. I had a particularly nice time when I took it to get adjusted today. Thank you so very much for the guitar, and for all the inspiration you’ve given me along the way!!! You’re a class act, and I appreciate everything you’ve shared with me along the way. Be well, and I hope this finds you in good health.

I didn’t want to give blind comments, so after spending plenty of time getting to know my Conti, here are the best comments I can give. Great looking guitar, neck and fretboard feel really good. Took a couple tries to learn how to string, but now that I’m used to it, I love that. A lot actually. Pickup and electronics have a lot of snap, very much so. Easy to dial tone in. Great choice on those. Tuners are nice and responsive. Love the ebony accoutrements. Very classy. I also love the gold hardware. Only one thing I could suggest for improvement: hard to get a strap on the bottom with the tailpiece. Probably supposed to be that way. I just play it sitting, so I don’t use a strap anyway. Great guitar!!! Thanks so much Robert!!!

Robert, I wanted to give you some honest feedback now that I’ve spent plenty of time with my guitar. Tone is fantastic through both solid state and tube amps. Hardware is holding up very well. Took me a few tries to get used to stringing with that style tailpiece. Grown to love it. Stays in tune very, very well. I was a little worried with the temp and humidity changes here. No type of wear or cracking to the wood after this amount of time. Very solid. I use an Oasis case humidifier. Fretboard is terrific, very smooth, no signs of wear. Very, very infrequent adjusting is necessary. Case is one of the nicest gig bags I’ve ever used or seen. Holding up well. I really like the shape of the neck. Fits well in my hand. Many thanks, and know it’s being played and properly loved. I’d buy another down the road.
