Great things come in small packages and Soloist S51C is proof! Excellent for Suzuki guitar method students, Soloist S51C is also perfect for grownups wishing to sneak in a little extra practice at work. Handmade in Europe, over 85 years of craftsmanship goes into each wonderful instrument. While only 1/2 the size of a regular guitar, full-size quality comes through courtesy of the Kremona workshop in Bulgaria. Compare Soloist S51C to instruments twice the size and twice the price of this handcrafted beauty – solid red cedar top, beautiful sapele back and sides, African mahogany neck, Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, wood fiber edging, wooden purfling and rosette, thin polyurethane finish, Van Gent gold-plated machine heads, long-lasting dovetail neck joint, and finished off with an inspection to assure quality in each instrument including a set-up with the world’s finest fractional size strings – "Kindersaiten" from Royal Classics. Other features include a thin 44mm (1.73-inch) width at nut and comfortable 510mm (20-inch) scale length.
