Up for consideration is a new Bartolex SRC8 8-String classical harp guitar, with hardshell case. Bartolex has now been in business for over 10 years, and with a total of over 500 multi-string guitars sold, we are celebrating our anniversary with a big discount on our 8-String guitars. This is a brand new
8-string Bartolex that sounds fantastic, and already represents a tremendous discount to luthier-made 8-string guitars costing several times as much. It comes with a 3-day, Satisfaction Guarantee return policy, and a 1-year warranty. The normal selling price for our 8-strings is $1,795 -- but here is a one-time opportunity to get a brand new one at a $400 discount!!!

Bartolex is a guitar company founded by Madrid-based luthier / designer
/ guitarist Neris Gonzalez, with production based in
the highest-quality Artisian Workshop in China. The result is a great
custom guitar design with highest-quality all-solid tonewoods and workmanship, at a very
affordable price (Click here for my Cathedral
Guitar Interview with Neris). Click here for additional Milagro/Bartolex reviews 1 | 2 | 3 | 4.
The sound, both acoustically and amplified, is fantastic. I personally
am endorsing Bartolex multi-string guitars and am selling them on
eBay and through Bartolex
USA because I have already played hundreds of gigs on my own
Milagro / Cathedral / Bartolex guitars (all designed by Neris), and I'm continually amazed at
how good these guitars are. These guitars are the answer to my personal
dream of having high-quality, multi-string guitar in standard production,
at an affordable price -- and maybe it will be for you as well.
MILAGRO / BARTOLEX
Milagro, Bartolex, and Cathedral Guitars are all designed by Neris Gonzalez, who also supervises production at the very best western-trained Artisan Workshop in China. Milagro is the all-solid, top-of-the-line model, with premium woods and the best possible materials and workmanship, but still at an affordable price. Bartolex is the mid-line models, with choice of spruce or cedar tops, and many options and custom features. Cathedral Guitars represents the entry-level line, with solid cedar tops and Mahogany back and sides, and simple appointments.
I have played and owned dozens of multi-string classical guitars,
and this instrument rivals, equals or surpasses most luthier-built guitars in the 3k - 6k range. This guitar has a AAA-grade
solid Cedar top, laminated East Indian Rosewood back & Sides,
rosewood fretboard, and creates a beautifully-balanced sound
with nice trebles, deep basses, and amazing resonance and sympathetic
I have the guitar tuned in a standard
8-string tuning where 1-6 are tuned normally, and
7=D, 8=A. Strings
By Mail has a great selection of 8-string sets, and can
put together custom sets for you at a discount over individual
strings. Several excellent string manufacturers offer multi-string
sets, including D'Addario,
* Bartolex SRC8
* Top: Solid Cedar
* Spruce Top Available
* B/S: Laminated Indian Rosewood
* Saddle/Nut: Bone
* Fretboard: Rosewood
* Finish: Lacquer
* Scale length: 650 mm
* Adjustable Truss Rod
* Hardshell case
* Made in China
In short, this guitar is a wonderful concert guitar and/or recording/performing guitar
for any intermediate to professional-level player, and it would make
a great guitar for classical concerts, recitals, local amplified gigs,
as well as recording studio projects.
"The guitar is is very well built and is simply beautiful -- I love how it looks and how it feels. The thickness of the neck is perfect and feels very comfortable. Overall, I am very pleased with the guitar.
And I must say I feel VERY thankful for people like you for making the dream of owning a multi-stringed guitar a reality.
