guitars are designed by luthier
- guitarist Neris Gonzalez
, who also supervises production in
the highest-quality Artisian Workshop
in China. The result is a master-grade
guitar design with the highest concert-quality tonewoods and workmanship -- and all at a very
affordable price (Click here for my Cathedral
with Neris). Click here for additional Milagro / Bartolex
The sound, both acoustically and recorded, is superior!!! I personally
am endorsing Milagro
10-string guitars and am selling them on
eBay and through my Bartolex
website because I have already played hundreds of gigs on my
guitars, and I'm continually astounded at
how good these guitars are. These guitars are the answer to my personal
dream of having true concert-quality, premium-grade 10-string guitars in standard production,
at an affordable price -- and maybe it will be for you as well.
, and Cathedral
Guitars are all produced at the same western-trained workshop in China. Milagro
is the all-solid, top-of-the-line model, with premium woods and the best possible materials and workmanship. Bartolex
is the mid-level models, with solid spruce or cedar tops, and laminated Indian Rosewood back & sides. Cathedral Guitars
is the entry-level line, with solid cedar tops and Mahogany back and sides.
I have now played or owned hundreds
of multi-string classical guitars,
and this instrument certainly rivals, equals or surpasses most luthier-built guitars in the 3k - 6k range. This guitar has a beautiful solid Cedar top, solid East Indian Rosewood back & sides,
ebony fretboard, and creates a beautifully-balanced Spanish sound
with nice trebles, deep basses, and excellent resonance and sympathetic
sustain. The low bass response is particularly good on these guitars. Many low A strings sound weak and tubby,
but the Milagro fan bracing design ensures a wonderful balance across all
registers, and creates a very even response all the way down
to low A.
I have the guitar tuned in Romantic tuning, a standard
10-string tuning where 1-6 is normal, and 7-10 descend step-wise:
7=D, 8=C, 9=B, 10 =A. Strings

for any intermediate to advanced-level player, and it would make
a great guitar for classical concerts, recitals, local gigs,
as well as recording studio projects.
“I received my Milagro MRC10 guitar last night, and the instrument plays beautifully, and sounds out of this world. The low basses project much more tone than I was expecting. Brilliant build quality, a real joy to play, and a prize to look at.”

CLASSICAL HARP GUITAR
This guitar type is a relative of the Harp Guitar family
also known as the Fretted
Harp Guitar. It has one big advantage over the other harp
guitar types in that the frets extend across the entire neck,
and can be played with a capo -- and be quickly
transposed into a variety of different keys, which is especially helpful
when accompanying singers. This is, of course, impossible on
a regular harp guitar with floating strings. Custom capos are made by Shubb (ask for the Pinnochio model), and also by Phill
