We believe that this latest Sinsonido AS101C/SPL nylon strung hybrid guitar to be rather special.

This, the very latest AS101/SPL (special) shares all the benefits of the other models in the range (integrated headphone amp, light weight, compact dimensions, adjustable height bridge  ...) but it also features a hybrid contemporary neck width of 46mm with a radiused fingerboard and a cutaway frame which makes access to the higher frets much easier than on a "classical" nylon guitar.

So here we have an electric guitar which performs just like an acoustic nylon instrument and it should please any discerning player, regardless of standard. Separate treble and bass controls on the AS101 models help you find the perfect tone.  

Steel string guitarists will find the layout familiar but this guitar brings with it the warmth and tone that only a nylon guitar can offer and this is even more true thanks the US Wright Technologies stereo pick-up. Classical players will find the modern neck a revelation which will encourage a new and wider repertoire.

And if you are a learner then you will be delighted by a great guitar that allows you to fully develop your skills yet one which will grow with you. Fantastic for its silent practice capability and great for its plugged in performance ability. 

Whatever your standard, you will find that this is a guitar that you will want to keep, always, no matter how you develop or how many guitars you will eventually own. 

A special guitar.

Is the Aria Hybrid Guitar as good as a SoloEtte Songbird?

No, the SoloEtte is without doubt the finer instrument and one which is hand crafted in the USA. The SoloEtte differs too in its construction being a one piece, neck through body design with custom American pre-amp, so it feels and sounds superior and has a very different body design.

However, the Aria Sinsonido does a really great job and whilst it is a mass produced guitar it is a design licenced by SoloEtte and shares the same overall dimensions, detachable frame design and uses a SoloEtte pickup.

If your use is as a serious performance instrument or you want the best then you will probably want to strive for the SoloEtte but the Sinsonido represents great value and it is a rewarding guitar in many situations. 

And .... recommended for your AS101C/SPL
