        Comments about Carlo Robelli CMD6610 Steel String Acoustic Guitar:

        I bought this guitar for my daughter a year ago. She has a nylon string also. She only used her old guitar and wouldn't play the steel string at all. After filing down the bridge, the action was still way too high. I looked at the guitar closer to see if it needed a truss rod adjustment. Upon looking closely, it appears that during construction the hole was drilled incorrectly and then re-drilled to compensate. The neck is now warped, so a truss rod adjustment won't help. Because this was a while ago, I can't return the guitar. I ended up getting her a Fender (beginner kit) for a very comparable price.

            Comments about Carlo Robelli CMD6610 Steel String Acoustic Guitar:

            Well I bought the guitar for a christmas gift for my daughter. But she's only touched it once, so I decided to start to playing it. The sound was ok, but after three weeks of light (maybe 20 minutes every other day) the bridge has mostly peeled back from the top of the guitar, really poor construction - the glue looked a little dried out when we opened it, but didn't expect this. Talked to support about the guitar, but since I'm 10 days over the 45 days they cant do anything for me so I'm off to a local sam ash to see if they can fix it. so bottom line three weeks and the bridge pulls off - really bad guitar. Also if you buy anything from sam ash - make sure everything is good right away and not just wrap it for a present.

              Comments about Carlo Robelli CMD6610 Steel String Acoustic Guitar:

              This guitar is very good quality, especially for the price. It has a beautiful, rich sound, good for folk or anything that's light acoustic. It sounds wonderful finger-picking. Even with the manufacturer's strings, it still sounds good. I'm planning on putting some Martin SP strings on it. Realizing that a new guitar with new strings takes a few days to tune properly, it has held it's tune very well. I have to admit the saddle is a little high for my taste, causing me to have to press on the strings a little more, but that can be easily sanded down. The wood is real spruce and rosewood, with a beautiful finish on it. The neck is a tiny bit thinner than a Fender neck, which makes it more comfortable for my smaller, thin fingers. I put this guitar in a case with a humidifier to keep it "healthy". I also own a Carlo Robelli nylon string guitar, and I trust the company to have quality products, even at a cheaper price.

                Comments about Carlo Robelli CMD6610 Steel String Acoustic Guitar:

                Carlo Robelli Model 6610 acoustic guitar ([$] Black Friday price; usually "discounted" to about [$]).I was considering a used Martin D-3R dreadnought that I thought could be had for about $750. Turned out that deal was not forthcoming and I moved on to other matters, when a Black Friday ad from Sam Ash offered the Robelli guitar for the ridiculously low price of about $75, including shipping. I had looked at this el cheapo before at $129, and thought it might be a good practice guitar, but the low price convinced me to give it a try. I figured worst case I'd give it to my grandkids to play with. Three days later FedEx brought it to my door, well boxed and packed.The guitar is a full-sized dreadnought with a well-matched, fine-grain spruce top. The sides and back are made of an unknown (to me) wood you can look up on the SamAsh site. The back and sides are finished at high gloss, with a faux grain pattern that doesn't quite carry the intended mahogany look. But it is wood, not plastic laminate. Overall, the fit and finish is surprisingly good at this price point, although there are a few obvious blemishes and rough spots here and there.But here's the main point: it actually plays well and sounds good. As another reviewer said, you definitely won't mistake it for a Martin or Taylor. This is mostly made evident by a rather dull low end resonance. However, the overall sound is bright and clean. The neck is straight, the fingerboard and frets are smooth, and the action is reasonably low and easy to manage. The fretting is accurate, and the tuners work smoothly and hold tension properly. As another review mentioned, the supplied strings are junk and should be replaced immediately, which I did with noticeable improvement.Bottom line: if you want a cheap but decent knock-about guitar that plays well and sounds good, this deal can't be beat. The frou-frou 'Robelli' moniker (from 'New York', no less) doesn't veil the obvious 'made in China' label, but you could pay a lot more for less guitar. But get some good strings.

                  I've had this guitar for the past year and I got to say it, I fell in love with it... I got it for free on black friday day of 2010 and I thought to myself: "this must be a really bad guitar, since they're giving it for free"... I remember that day I also go the Ovation idea... I went home and thought that I should sell the guitar since i got the ovation and I got a buyer the same day... Opened both guitars and the CMD6610 really surprised me, not only the look but the sound of it... I called the buyer i had for the guitar and said "sorry, but im keeping it"... And since then I use this guitar more that the Ovation and I'm not saying that is better, to be clear, but is an amazing guitar that you can afford. If I had to buy this guitar again, believe me I would...

                      I used the Carlo Robelli at my cousins wedding, a winery, and a lot more occasions than I can remember. It was great, was easy to play, rich sound. My only regret about buying this guitar was that it broke, but because of ownership carelessness, not manufacturer mistakes.

                      ok, just got this axe a few hours ago at the "black friday" sale. freebie with a gator case. i honestly expected something between effective kindling, and a canoe paddle. i was dead wrong! got her home, removed the packaging, and gave her a good eyeballing. thick finish, but no flaws i could spot immediately. bridge had a couple small marks from the foam bag it occupied, buffed off with a few rubs of my fingertip. the top looks like they actually book-matched the face lamination (almost perfect grain match!),the rosewood on the fingerboard has nice grain, the agathis body parts exhibit almost no grain, but the "mottled dabbing" stain technique used on them gives a very attractive appearance. no, i doubt anyone will mistake it for a martin, or a taylor, but it isnt begging to be painted either. real nice for the pricepoint. the original strings are awful. they were corroded, stretched like nylon (2 chords, and time to re-tune, even after "forced stretching"(imagine bungee jumping...lol)). the bridge pins must have been installed with a 4 lb deadblow hammer, and had adhered to the not quite dry finish, so took some "armstrong" to remove (protected the bridge with some light cardboard, used some sidecutters to "pinch, pry, pinch some more"), took some care and cursing, but they came out intact. put a set of ernie ball electric "super slinkys" (9's)on her (i find the light strings bring out a lam tops "voice" more, though im sure the acoustic purists are screaming "heresy!!"...rofl), and tuned her up. this girl has a sweet voice, kids! the action is just a pinch high, the intonation just a quarter step to treble at the 12th fret, a couple touches with a file will make it perfectly intonated! now, im the first to admit, im a total novice, with big fat stupid fingers, and not a whole bunch of talent, but for a budget priced, mass produced axe, this baby is a very nice surprise! i previously had a burswood acoustic, that i HAD to give away, as its lack of tone drove me insane (really seemed like it was made of veneered cardboard, glued together with some racetracks longshots)! im thinking a good saddle, nut, and a set of decent bridgepins will make this baby a serious smoker, tone-wise (but dead stock, except for the strings, she's no slouch already!). if you're shopping for a beginner, looking for a "knock-around" or "beach blanket beater", or (like me) on a serious low budget, this is an axe to consider, long and hard! the frets are smooth, no sharp edges (i did find a burr or 2 on the "unreachable" ones below the neck-body joint, that would dress of easily with an emory board, if no other tool was available to you). the machine heads feel a little "gritty", but are perfectly servicable. it probably wont impress anybody with its label, but this little girl rocks on a budget! id honestly be happy paying full price for this gem, so imagine the grin im wearing having just gotten it as a "gimme"! thanks, sam ash, this baby is a full on surprise "keeper"!
