I received my Conti Guitar the day before yesterday. I had to break away to write this because I’m having a hard time putting it down. The guitar is “as advertised” and much, much more. I was a little hesitant about buying a guitar sight unseen, but Mike was very helpful and took the time to answer all my questions to my satisfaction. Thanks Mike! I tweaked the tuning and it was ready to go right out of the box. The guitar is flawless, plays like a dream and far exceeds my expectations. The action on this guitar is unbelievable. I own seven guitars by leading guitar manufacturers and none of them played like this guitar out of the box. It looks, plays and sounds better than guitars at twice the price. The Conti Guitar is easily going to become my favorite guitar!
