A mighty little guitar with rich and full tone

I usually play a nice full size all solid Spanish classical guitar but have as of late enjoyed using a 1/2 scale guitar as a couch guitar to play around while sitting on the sofa, memorizing my repertoire, fingerpicking some melodies and just struming a few jazz and bossa nova chords. Wanting to upgrade from that 1/2 scale laminate guitar I was looking for a solid top guitar of a similarly small size but with better tone quality. There aren't too many guitars that fit that bill and after trying out a few from other brands I was just not satisfied with the tone quality of either of them - they just were not better and at times even less satisfying than my laminate top model. I then stumbled upon this Kala model, knowing Kala only from Ukuleles. There is not much information about this guitar to be found online and only very few dealers actually sell it. I decided to risk it and ordered directly from Kala. And... to my surprise this guitar absolutely rocks. It has a 580mm scale length but with an even smaller body size than other guitars with that or similar scale length. But the sound is much fuller and richer than anything I had tried in that size of guitar. The trebles create wonderful overtones and resonances. This is a mighty little guitar and has brought an end to my search for a great sounding little guitar to play on the couch or to take along on trips. This guitar should get more attention. It even comes with a very decent gig bag that fits it snuggly.

This guitar has a full sound for a small body and came with a nice gig bag.

This guitar is very comfortable to hold and play; the action is set well and the neck is the perfect width. The fret edges are well-crafted. Was easy to order online; was well packed for shipping; was delivered in a timely fashion and was nicely set up.
