10-String Classical Harp Guitar
Premium Tonewoods, All-Solid Cedar / Mahogany
w/Adjustable Truss Rod, Hardshell Case
Up for consideration is a brand new 2017 model year Cathedral Guitar 10-String classical harp guitar, with hardshell case. This guitar is the Cathedral Guitars Model 15, which features a solid Cedar top, and all-solid mahogany back & sides. This guitar is the top model in the lineup of 3 Cathedral Guitars, made by Bartolex. The goal here was to keep the tonewood and craftsmanship quality very high -- but with simpler cosmetic details to keep the price-point affordable -- as before we came along, the only game in town was the Ramirez 1a for $15k!!!. This is a wonderful 10-string guitar, and the only all-solid tonewood model that you can get for under $2k.
We have sold over 500 multi-string guitars, and are by far and away the world's leader in 7- 8- 10- and 11-string guitars.

Please visit BartolexUSA for additional Cathedral / Bartolex / Milagro reviews.
Bartolex / Milagro / Cathedral is founded by Argentinian guitar designer, luthier and guitarist Neris Gonzales, with production based in a high-quality Artisian Workshop in China. The result is a great guitar with high-quality tonewoods and Western-trained craftsmanship at a price / quality level untouchable by USA or European builders.
The sound, both acoustically and recorded, is simply wonderful. I personally am endorsing Cathedral Guitars, Bartolex and Milagro 10-string guitars and am now selling them here on REVERB. I have already well played many hundreds of gigs on my own Cathedral 10-String guitar, and I'm constantly astounded at how good these guitars are, and for the price / performance ratio, they are simply unbeatable.
This guitar has a AAA-grade solid cedar top, solid mahogany back & sides, and rosewood 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 this guitar. It is also very even across the registers, and has excellent resonance and sympathetic sustain.
I have the guitar tuned with Savaerz Strings 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 By Mail has a great selection of 10-string sets and can put together custom sets for you at a discount over individual strings. Several excellent string manufacturers offer 10-string sets, including D'Addario, Hannabach, and Savarez.
