Robert Mercer – Mason, OH

Received the guitar as you know and I love it! I raised at the bridge and still have the action set low at .01/.02 at one and .04/.05 at the twelfth. It is unlike any archtop I’ve played in that the combination of the scale and the 16 fret body make it feel like a longer scale which is most comfortable but of course it is shorter for efficient chords and increased warmth. Very nice. I am interested in what Mr. Conti’s set up is. Must be extremely low based on where this guitar was when I received it. I’d guess straight neck with .01/.02 or less at the first. .03/.04 at twelve? This will be my primary guitar for everything but finger picking.

Michael Hallberg – Bridgeville, PA

Mr. Conti, It was an absolute pleasure meeting you last week. I still can not believe you and Mike hand delivered the guitar to me in person at my hotel in Las Vegas, NV. I’ve had a few days to play it and the “Conti Guitar” plays like a dream and sounds as beautiful as it looks. Your guitar will be the standard I use to evaluate any other guitars I may play in the future. You got it right! The success of this guitar could only be limited by the level of promotion and advertising it receives. I’m a customer for life.
