sound sample

The objective of this Kent Guitar Classics model is to offer an artisan-made, hand-built guitar with good quality materials, hand finished and set up very well, with professional 'concert guitar' quality sound and projection ... but at much reduced price for those able, ambitious players who, needing a really good instrument, are unable to afford the more expensive instruments.

Made in England by Stephen Eden Guitars, the materials, craftsmanship and sound qualities are at the highest level ... but all the time-consuming and costly cosmetic details that do nothing for sound, are cut right down to significantly reduce cost. These are the very opposite of so many guitars on the market that are all glitzy appearance and little substance in terms of real sound.

These Cadenza guitars have a crisp, clear, sustaining quality combined with good depth of bass and facilitate a wide variety of tone colour ... enza-model
