I received my new Blonde Entrada with the Midnight Package and two pickups exactly one week ago. Let’s just say it was love at first sight. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of all the “hype” on the Conti website, but this guitar has exceeded my expectations. The guitar was shipped in a sturdy container that was well packed. I thought about ordering the hard-shell case, but the gig bag is well constructed and sturdy. If I was touring and traveling, I think this would have been a good option, but the gig bag will be fine for gigging locally. The black knobs, switches, and tuners really pop against the natural blonde wood. I’ve looked this guitar over carefully and cannot find an imperfection or a flaw with the finish or build. Every time I look more closely at this guitar I notice more interesting and beautiful wood grain
Very good idea to make a video of Robert playing my new guitar. I am happy, just received my guitar in perfect condition! Most important for a guitar is the pleasure you have to play it. Great sound, very smooth, nice and very good instrument. Thanks again. Francis Chaverou – Saint Mathieu De Tréviers, France
Thank you Mr. Robert Conti! I viewed your personalised introduction video with joy and anticipation. It’s been five days since she arrived and I have certainly fallen in love with my beautiful new Conti Entrada. As promised, she felt great out of the box- such a pretty thing- and came with a great quality gig bag. I plugged her in and what a gorgeous sound. After such a long trip, I gave her a quick tune and action/ intonation check. I was smitten. She’s a bit like a super-model- beautiful from all angles but has more than just the looks. The neck is pretty special- delightful and effortless to play. The ebony really feels wonderful, the dimensions and shape make playing a breeze- it seems almost easier to select individual strings. Abalone inserts are super nice. Headstock really is beautifully shaped and proportioned and genuinely classy in my opinion. Tuning
“Absolutely wonderful guitar! Jammed tunes from blues to jazz, and some of my originals. Plays like butter, and the setup is fantastic. Not a bad spot on it! I’m able to get different sounds out of it. It is very flexible and wide range. It is also very light and not cumbersome. I’m enjoying very much. Getting ready to go to praise band practice. I’ll let you know!” -Rick White Jr – Sugar Hill, GA
My Port Wine single pickup Entrada guitar arrived yesterday in pristine condition. Very securely packed and in the best hard case I have seen. Thank you Robert and your team, especially Mike, who kindly answered all my questions when I called on Thanks Giving. A truly beautiful and high quality instrument. I look forward to many hours of playing. Thank you! -Peter in Melbourne, Australia
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. Two Weeks Later 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
…if you were holding this beautiful instrument. My Entrada is exactly what I was looking for in a new guitar. Great tone, easy to play, gorgeous, and affordable. Pictures don’t do it justice – the combination of the Port Wine finish, gold hardware and inlays is stunning. I selected the dual pickup version, where I can dial the Entrada to either a smooth jazz sound or a more bluesy and even country style. It’s also much lighter than my previous semi-hollow archtop, which helps in how easy and fun it is to handle. Mr. Conti’s video showed that my Entrada performs beyond anything I’ll be able to pull from it. I want to thank him, Mike and Steve for all of the great customer support they provide, both in the purchase of the guitar and for the courses available from the Robert Conti website. If you’re looking for a great
Received my Entrada yesterday! Wow! What a great guitar! I love it! The look the action and sound without an amp is incredible. I’d say I’ve struck gold with this guitar. From the personalization, the video to receiving this excellent looking and sounding guitar. I’ve never received a guitar I can play without a setup. You are one special man helping me achieve my last goal in life, to be a jazz musician. Your luthiers have done a fantastic job creating this valuable instrument for me. I feel very special having this incredible instrument. I look forward in the lessons you have provided for me. -Eugene Albrecht – Rotonda West, FL
“I’ve been playing my gorgeous new Conti Entrada for a couple of weeks now, and I’m convinced it’s the best-playing guitar I’ve ever owned, maybe the best I’ve ever played. The combination of the Ebony fingerboard, perfect fret size, and the amazing attention paid to the fretwork, all lend a sure feel to the fingers, instantly evident in difficult passages. The setup was terrific, including the perfectly slotted nut. On top of it all, the guitar is so beautiful. Buying was a remarkable experience—the commitment to excellence and personal attention this company provides is unmatched in the business world. Kudos to everyone!” -Randy Allred – Bellingham, WA
