Slightly larger than the Requinto 580, the Cadete is a 3/4 size guitar (615mm scale length). It has the traditional Spanish 7 fan bracing, a solid Cedar top and mahogany back and sides. Additional features include a hand inlaid wooden rosette, gold tuning machines with pearl buttons and a rosewood fingerboard. An adjustable truss rod is built into the neck. This is a great guitar for anyone looking for a lightweight, comfortable, and easy playing instrument.

She said she was "amazed" at the sound quality and the way the sound projected from a guitar at this price point. She also liked the construction quality and felt it easily compared to other guitars in the $800-1000 level. Furthermore, she felt my daughter could get 2-3 years out of this level of guitar before we need to upgrade. It would then be likely that we would progress to the $1500-3000 range if my daughter's progress/interest continues. I was skeptical but was happy to save money if the Cadete would do the trick.
I also called around, and ended up speaking to two luthiers who make high end guitars. They did not know this particular guitar as they make custom high end instruments. But, they did feel that a step to the $1000 level does not buy a huge upgrade from the $200-300 level.
Well, we are extremely satisfied with the sound, build quality, and the beauty of the instrument for just over $200. It is a huge upgrade from the starter Fender which was not a bad starter. The Cordoba sound is reasonably comparable to the instructor's $1400 classical - in the instructor's opinion.
I thought this was a great buy, especially when you consider the quality balanced against the possibility that a young student could end up losing interest in guitar. The only negative is that it does not include a case, but at this price point you would get a cheap one if it was included. So I would recommend buying a decent quality padded gig bag or hard case.
I fully believe I could resell the Cordoba 3 years from now for $90-125, thereby making this an even better value. I would highly recommend this instrument.
I've only had it two days, but I'm really pleased with it. Not only does it look gorgeous, but it sounds amazing! Compared to the Luna, which has a nice sound, there is more depth to the sound - the bass is very good on this guitar. I'm finding it easy to play despite having small hands and short fingers (and am not too coordinated to boot!). The 3/4 body makes it very comfortable for me to hold, like the Luna. I can't get my arm around a full-sized acoustic bout without serious discomfort, but the Cadete is a perfect fit for me.
Mine didn't come with a gig bag, but I had ordered a Gator case Gator GWE-ACOU-3/4 Hard shell Acoustic Case for my Luna, and the Cadete fits like it was made for it (it's a touch big for the Luna's body).
Mine also didn't have strap buttons on it, but I had the seller install them. The seller - Calido Guitars - was great. They set up the guitar before shipping, and were very prompt at answering my questions both before and after ordering. And it arrived two days early!
I highly recommend this guitar for anyone!
