La Patrie Concert - Reviews La Patrie Concert CW

I was looking for high-end Lasido acoustic guitars in almost every pawn shop of Montreal and fell on this baby. The salesman let it go for 150$ can (about 110$US) with a crappy hard case witch is great since it costs about 370$CAN in stores and is as good (if not better) than any 500$ Alvarez or Yamaha.

The solid cedar top sounds like a charm and i got it new, but it aged within a month, now it sounds almost better than those 25 years old handcrafted guitars we have at school. The mahogany neck plays like a charm and feels incredibly confortable, they say the trust rod helps to make it thiner... The sound is awesome as usual with the mahogany/cedar combo: the bases are strong and the mids are fantastic, maybe a little more personality on the highs would have been appreciated, but for a 300$ guitar, it's amazing.

The only bad point is some buzzing on the A string, i'll get that fixed as soon as possible, nothing else to complain about. A solid back would have been appreciated and the action is a bit high, but nothing unbearable. Oh, the tuners seems cheap, but i guess that's necessary to lower the cost.

Solid cedar top, three way laminated mahogany back and sides, thin laquer finish, mahogany head and neck, rosewood fingerboard, i don't know what the bone & saddle are made of, but it isn't either plastic or bone... The rosette isn't inlay but who gves a damn?

Just... Wow!
