I’ve already got my new Entrada Guitar (15 inch) I love it, it’s gorgeous and comfortable to play I love the Port Wine color with gold finger tailpiece. Also I want to thank your Support and Service Staff; they are great, always informing me of the status of my purchase. When I saw your Entrada guitar demo in Youtube, I said I gotta have one. Also I’m amazed seeing you play those lines; it’s heavy stuff and watching your other videos I become interested when you said you can learn jazz by playing jazz, no modes and scales. And that’s why I also purchase some of your book and DVD products. I have a lot of jazz instructional books and DVDs that I purchase until now, I don’t know how to apply it in jazz songs. Base on my experience studying the Robert Conti books and DVDs, (although I’m still
First, the punch line: After a month I’ve concluded that this guitar is not a substitute, surrogate, or compromise for that more expensive jazz box that one longs for and cannot afford. This IS the guitar of one’s dreams. I’ll be as brief as I can. I have many guitars. But no real jazz guitars. I don’t play much jazz, but sometimes want to go there, and somehow my .strandberg* just isn’t right. I try to stay away from retail stores because there is ALWAYS something that catches my eye. But, I needed a set of strings and since I was near a store, I stopped by. As usual, I looked at used wall. There was nothing interesting. Walk away. Quickly. But… what’s that? Needing a ladder to get to it, there was a red wine archtop high on the wall. Conti? What’s a Conti? I’d never heard of them.
Dear good – sorry: BEST – people at Conti Guitars, I would like to thank you all very much again – the Entrada guitar was delivered today in best order, shape & form. Sincere thanks for all your advice, support and time. Thank you also very much, Mr. Conti, for the splendid video – I don’t match your heights in expertise but am making up for it with a loving touch! The guitar indeed plays like a dream, the reviews did not lie, not a single bit! You have a new fan across the Atlantic in Switzerland and I will make sure to spread your name & artful work here. Warm regards, I‘ll stay in touch hopefully 🙏 -Berry Kralj – Wettingen, Switzerland
Just received my new Robert Conti Entrada via FedEx, a day ahead of schedule, within four days from America; great service and beautifully packed, perfect condition – real credit to Robert and his boys. It’s an absolute beauty! For a slimline, the acoustic sound is amazing in terms of clarity and tone. Very playable and highly recommended; wonderful value for money. -Anthony Gilsenan – Ashington, UK
My Conti Entrada archtop will most likely be the finest guitar I’ve played in all the years I’ve been playing. Left handed guitars are a scarce commodity; I’ve had my Gibsons, D’Angelicos, Epiphones, etc etc,… but NONE play better than my Robert Conti Entrada right out of the box, I’ve never set it up – it’s “perfect” as it is. No need to get technical, I’m just enjoying to play it. They play and sound as beautiful as they are crafted. Grazii mille mille signore Conti! Ottima chitarra questa è! (Thank you very much Mr. Conti! This is a great guitar!) Peppino Bianco – Chicago, IL
“The guitar plays effortlessly, the slim neck and articulate Kent Armstrong pickup make for a guitar that practically plays itself. All this is nothing without the insane set up and action on this model – Mr. Conti wasn’t lying when he said this is as good as it gets! I couldn’t be more pleased with this guitar and the service! Ordering American guitars to the UK can be a lot of stress, especially when it’s a guitar you haven’t tried out, but the whole Conti team treats you like family and the family feel alongside the quality of their instruments and extremely reasonable prices is something really special!” – Alfie Dean, United Kingdom @_alfiedean See a short video clip of Alfie playing his Entrada:
Robert, thanks for the time you spent with my new guitar. I really like what you played, and the introduction to the instrument is really appreciated. The guitar arrived today and it is simply beautiful. Fit and finish outstanding. It really sounds good and plays amazing. Tone through my Fishman Loudbox 100 with all EQ at 12:00 is classic, and with a very nice slight edge. The combination of design and sonic engineering on the tail piece is genius on both counts. A beautiful instrument. My mandolin and 000 model guitar are lifetime instruments, and out of the box the Conti immediately earned the same designation. I’ll be leaving this to a child or grandchild. I think a comparison to xxx and xxx is certain to find the Conti on top. I think it is very favorably comparable to the xxx priced over $7,000. My very nice L5 copy is
Guitar delivered to Var, France, in just one week after ordering, without any damage or unpleasant surprises. It only took a few days for me to get used to it. I adjusted it to my liking, removed the pickguard for aesthetic reasons since I play without a pick, and put on flat wound strings that I am accustomed to using. I own several guitars, and this one is by far the easiest and most enjoyable to play, especially for jazz. Very low action, fast neck, surprising sustain, beautiful aesthetics, and lightweight – you can play it at home without an amplifier. The exclusivity of the marketing made me apprehensive about buying a guitar online from the USA without trying it, but I am convinced that I made a good choice and hope to keep it for a long time. The guitar was accompanied by a very informative video from Mr.
Second Entrada: June 8, 2023 When you purchase a guitar online without actually seeing or playing it, you take your chances. After buying my blonde Conti Entrada guitar, I knew what to expect. Once again, I received an excellent guitar and outstanding customer service. My new Port Wine Conti Entrada is everything I expected, and it sounds as beautiful as it looks. The guitar came set up perfectly. The intonations were spot on and the action was as low as I could possibly want it. Even though I now have two Entradas, there are some subtle differences that give each guitar a unique feel and voice. This time I ordered the hard shell case to control humidity, and I am very happy with its quality. It’s always a pleasure to receive a video of Robert Conti playing YOUR guitar before it’s shipped. For me, it adds to the whole customer
