Contestant number one is the Takamine Pro Series C132S. Takamine has been supplying the market with the Pro Series C123S guitar since the early 1980s. Many customers can proudly vouch for this being their first ever guitar. Being another nylon string classical, it’s easy to see why it’s been on the market for so long and used by so many. Many customers, decades later, still report that this guitar has been keeping the company for 20-30 years and still sounds like a charm!

And now we will have a look at our second product, the Kremona Performer Series S63CW. This model is part of Kremona’s famous Performer Series. This series consists of seven guitars in total, each one having their own trademark sound, color coat and wood materials. Kremona is known for putting their soul into their instruments. At the end of WWII, Dimitar Gerogiev held an apprenticeship with the Markneukirchen luthier masters, returned to Bulgaria and founded Kremona in 1924. He did this with two other accomplices, thus starting the long line of performer series we have today.
