    Please note - From January 1st 2021, the sales of the Cadenza guitars is through The 2021 production will have some developments to the design of the head crest, the rosette and label to herald the new marketing arrangements.
    The objective of this model is to offer an artisan-made, hand-built guitar with good quality materials, hand finished and set up very well, with professional 'concert guitar' quality sound and projection ... but at much reduced price for those able, ambitious players who, needing a really good instrument, are unable to afford the more expensive instruments.
    Made in England by Stephen Eden Guitars, the materials, craftsmanship and sound qualities are at the highest level ... but all the time-consuming and costly cosmetic details that do nothing for sound, are cut right down to significantly reduce cost. These are the very opposite of so many guitars on the market that are all glitzy appearance and little substance in terms of real sound.
    These Cadenza guitars have a crisp, clear, sustaining quality combined with good depth of bass and facilitate a wide variety of tone colour.
    With cedar version, left-handed version or 64cm scale options now available, they are currently priced below £2000 including VAT for schools and under 21's ... offering sound quality way above most imported guitars at higher price. According to all that have played them, they have unbeatable sound at this price and higher ... which is the whole idea!
