Lucero LC100 Nylon String Classical Guitar

Lucero is a Guitar Center brand (owned by GTRC Services, Inc.) and with the exception of Amazon, it's primarily available through retailers that are part of the Guitar Center group including Musicians Friend, Music123 and Woodwind and Brasswind.

The Lucero LC100 is positioned as a student/beginner instrument with a slightly smaller scale length and nut width than standard classical models but still within the size range that can be considered a Classical Guitar.

Pros

In addition to positive customer reviews at retail websites we also found independent recommendations on forums including some from guitar teachers.

Cons

To their credit, Guitar Center does allow negative customer reviews for this brand on the retail websites they own . In terms of consistently reported negatives, there were some complaints about the tuning pegs/machines being low quality.

Overall

This is one of the cheapest classical guitars available.

Until December 2017 we were recommending this as an entry level nylon string guitar, however its ratings have slipped and we now recommend the Yamaha C40 as a more highly rated alternative.
