Kremona Verea Cutaway

If you hadn't heard about Kremona before, you'll be glad you have now. Originally emanating from Bulgaria and now with operations also located in the USA, this guitar manufacturer has a history that dates back to 1924 - they even survived the post war era when they were nationalized by the then communist government in their home country.

The Verea Cutaway is a hybrid instrument with a small 48 mm nut width that even electric guitarists find easy to transition to.

Like the Cordoba GK Studio Negra, it uses Fishman Presys Blend electronics which includes a built-in condenser microphone in addition to a more traditional under-saddle piezo pickup.

Pros

The sentiment surrounding this guitar, and the Kremona brand in general, is very positive in the occasional English language expert review and forum discussions. There were also a number of sources of apparently positive feedback in other languages but we didn't take those into account when processing its Gearank rating.

Cons

There were no consistently reported complaints about this guitar - there was one reviewer who joked that although his Verea inspired him to play more it hadn't instantly made him a better guitarist.

Overall

This is also a good guitar to consider if you're making the transition from steel string acoustic or electric guitars.
