Raimundo 148 vs Camps m14

Postby Tim Wang » Tue Mar 07, 2017 8:15 am

Hey guys, I'm debating between the two guitars. I live in Taiwan and guitars are very limited, so I've decided to order online. I'm looking at guitarfromspain.com. The price are both around 1000 Euros. I've previously ordered and owned a Camps SP6 from them and loved it. I'm thinking of upgrading and am deciding between these two guitars. I was wondering if you guys can give me some feedback? Thanks! much appreciated.

A vote for the Raimundo 148 from me. I also have the Cedar version and really like the sound and playability of it.

I sold my M14 some weeks ago. The sound of the guitar was OK for the price but you could see that it has not the quality of a luthier made guitar. You mentioned that you live in Taiwan, therefore I would look for a good Yamaha GC or an Asturias guitar. You can buy excellent used Asturias guitars for about €1000 with traditional fan bracing and Spanish sound.

Thanks for the feedback! Thanks especially to piotr for the sound sample!

Taiwan mostly sells Yamaha guitars, and they're only in the CG class. Couldn't really find any GCs. I'll probably need to travel to Japan to really get a good price for the Yamaha or Asturias.

How much import tax do you have to pay for a shipment from Japan, and is CITES a problem in Taiwan? I saw there is an Asturias Tsuji S-3 for sale in Japan for about €1150. That would be a great guitar in your price range if you can manage the online buy and shipment (and with the assumption the guitar is in good condition).
