I bought a Soloette classical, then had a chance to test the Aria Sinsonido AS 100-C. It is almost identical, with very similar sound and controls. And why not since the Aria is a licensed design from Wright, the makers of the Soloette. It also uses a Wright Technology pickup system. If what you seek is a practice guitar, not a concert performer, buy the Aria Sinsonido and save yourself about $340.

I bought my Aria AS-100C 4 or 5 years ago at a high end guitar store in San Francisco and I have been very happy with it. The fretboard width (2 inches at the nut) and length are the same as on a true classical guitar. The guitar uses ball end style nylon strings that are threaded through the end of the fretboard -- note the tuning gears are in the "body" of the guitar where the bridge would normally be, which allows for a shorter guitar - 34 inches. The only complaint I have about this arrangement is that the first string (high E) cuts into the mahogany. To alleviate this, I cut a tiny bit of insulation off a lamp wire and threaded the string through that and wedged it as close to the hole as possible so the string is resting on the insulation instead of the wood on it's way to the nut.

The Sinsonido comes with a padded carrying case that is about 35.5 long x 10.5 wide, by 3 to 4 inches deep. When using the case, you disassemble the guitar by taking off the foam padded frame. I take this guitar with me when I fly and so far, I have been allowed to carry it on board (in addition to my other carryon) and stash in in the overhead compartment, even though it is longer than the 22 inches allowed by the airlines. If you were required to check the guitar in its padded case instead of carrying it on, I think there is a chance that it could be damaged.

I also use my Sinsonido at home for practicing instead of my true acoustic classical guitar when I don't want to disturb others. It comes with headphones for silent practicing, but you can also hook it up to an amplifier. It uses a 9 volt battery.

I ordered this despite of some negative issues. It takes me 2 years in order to write this review. I have been practicing this every time I have enough space on subway train. This is extremely entertained and helpful for the skill.
And I used this to perform an hour long solo concert in Vermont international festival. You can search lehau.com to see the photo. The reason I write this comment because I am happy with this as a solution to save time and energy and entertainment in this busy world. And I think it might help some classical guitar lovers who spend lot of time on the go.
The trick is. if you use head phone or cheap p.a the sound comes our not really good in term of qualified sound for performance and your vibrato seems to have no effect at all. But if you plug on a good PA system, the sound comes out qualified enough. And more important, vibrato works well. For hit-the-road playing I used a Roland mobile cube which I think it works along well with this sinsonido. So P.A is the key factor to have good for it. Anyway, you always need P.A's when you play out loud.
One thing more I like this that you can adjust the strings height really easy.
At least this is my experience after 2 years always having it with me everywhere I go.

I bought this guitar as a "silent" classical guitar practice tool.

A couple of problems compared with the original Soloette:

1) Neck was 48mm not 52mm (the model Amazon sent me had a 48mm neck).
2) The top of the guitar is completely flat. Unlike the Soloette which attempts to mimic the depth of a regular classical guitar.
3) Aria tuners on this guitar feel like cheap plastic toys. But I cannot honestly say how well they maintain strings in tune. I sent the guitar back as soon as I realized (1) and (2).

I ended up forking over the full price for a Soloette and I believe it was worth every penny if you are trying to work on your classical guitar technique.

Hope this review saves some aggravation for somebody.

18 months ago i performed at a small festival in the north of england,i was using a takamine electro-acoustic which for me was heavy and cumbersome as i have long term spinal problems.By the time i returned home i was exhausted and thinking seriously about giving up performing,but a few days later i walked into Project Music in Exeter and there it was,an Aria Sinsonido. I picked it up and it was so light,played like a dream,sounded great even when it wasn't plugged in,i got it for about £248 and ain't looked back since.Plugged in it rarely needs any external eq so sound check time is cut to a minimal,played clean it has a sound half way between a good classical and a good steel-string (it's actually a steel-string!),if you want to drive it through effects,don't stand in it's way or it will mow you down.It has become my work-horse and I use it on most things i do.
Check out Jerry Cahill,Littleborough Musicfest 2012 to see this wonderful piece of kit in action.
Now for the one small gripe,I always use a straight saddle on my other guitars but the aria comes with a conventional curved one,the pick-up of course is built into the saddle, question is whether it would compromise the electric sound if i carved it flat.If anybody, player,repair man,or anyone from aria can help please get in touch at jerrycahill@hotmail.co.uk.
I'll continue using it anyway.
