I was looking for inexpensive classical guitar and found this higher end Lucero classical guitar for $160, 50% off at Musician's Friend, shipping is free.

This is classical version, the one with nylon strings, normally played without a pick. You get a lot of features typically not found in classical guitars:
- Truss rod for neck adjustment,
- Cutaway design for access to high frets,
- Electronic Fishman build-in tuner,
- Premium Fishman Clasica III preamp - guitar can be plugged into amp or computer.

It also comes with solid spruce top.

Lots of premium features, you typically pay a lot more than $160 for this selection of features.

FEATURES
Striped sapele back and sides
Solid spruce top
Multi-ply wood binding
3-ply rear marquetry strip
Custom rosette
Gold hardware
White Ivoroid Regal tuners
D™Addario ProArte strings
Comfort-cutaway
Fishman Clasica III preamp: 3-band EQ, Phase, Tuner

20 reviews at MF, most are 5 star (16 reviews), 2 four-star.

I own this guitar and genuinely like it. The sound starts out over bright, but after a month or two of playing, it warms and fills out (as most solid wood instruments do).
The binding mentioned in the featured comment, "the feeling of cutting your hand on the frets" is not an issue on many of the guitars by this manufacturer. I'm sorry that the commenter had a less-than-stellar experience with a guitar that is different from, but comparable with, the Cordoba C5 series at least.
The amplified tones are clean if a touch tinny for my particular taste, but I'm rather picky about electric acoustic instruments.
This deal does come around, though, about once a year, so if reading my post causes you to consider buying it but the deal is gone, you'll have the chance again.
Is this the best guitar I've ever played? No. Is it worth full market price? Maybe. Is it a fantastic deal on a good instrument? Yes. Would I advise anyone to purchase this who has a true interest in nylon-string/classical/flamenco music? Absolutely!

After this deal was posted on front page, I went to a local Guitar Center and bought one that was available. It sound great to my ears. The frets were a bit sharp but they weren't sticking out. I didn't test out the electronics at the store and took it home.

After I got home and plugged in the guitar, I noticed that the top three strings were not picked up by the preamp. I took it back to GC a few days later and the tech looked at it but couldn't fix it on the spot. The saddle was glued to the bridge and was not removable. Forcing it out will destroy the pickup. The tech said it was not worth his time to fix it and would rather sending it back to the manufacture. I ended up ordering the same guitar again to have it ship to store (with price matched.) The tech promised to test everything before I take it home.

The bottom line for me is that for $170-ish (with tax), this guitar is a bargain.

I haven't had a classical guitar for a while. This seems like a good deal, assuming I don't get one of the ones with QC issues (sounds like it's a pretty small portion that do).

I called MF about my order (which was supposed to be shipped by Feb-21) and was told that shipment from manufacturer was delayed. New ship date was given as Mar-3.

I wonder how's the quality of the Musician's Friend version vs the Guitar Center version. Originally I ordered from MF but cancelled because I found one from a local GC. This was a second one. The first one I got from GC had problems with the electronics. I returned it and found another one from a different GC and that one has been working well. I wonder if the MF one is a newer version and better.

Thanks for the reply. Can you take pictures of the guitar and the serial number? I'll do the same. Not sure if there is any info out on the web as to how to decipher the serial numbers. You can try this link
https://www.music-man.com/serial-number-database

You can PM me the info. I'm trying to decide if I should return the GC version and order the one from MF if it's newer and better. Thanks!
