Soloist 700 test bench
More than perfect?
The Soloist 700 belongs to a price category which leaves no room for error. Made with solid woods, this guitar opens a new chapter in the catalog of the French brand. A fanfare opening?
Stuck between entry and high end, this price section presents a lot of risks for manufacturers, guitarists not failing to compare guitars of this type with cheaper models, but also with more expensive instruments, for s 'ensure that it would not be preferable to add a few hundred euros to "get even better". Prodipe took the risk, but the goal is reached, and we can immediately qualify the Soloist 700 as an exemplary guitar, which today can be posed in reference to the genre, quite simply.
SPANISH IN THE SOUL
This guitar is a tribute to the Spanish violin making. Although made in Asia, the Soloist 700 is indeed built according to traditional Iberian rules. It is moreover a specialist in the genre which ensured the design and supervised the manufacture. It then seems normal to discover an instrument full of flavors. The achievement is magnificent in every way.
The handle is traditional, but the creator's inspiration has however led to slightly modify the ribs in order to offer a more modern profile. Getting started is easier, especially for those who are used to practicing folk or electric. For the beginner guitarist - how lucky to be able to start on a guitar of this type! -, it will be a very easy application for the first round developed.
Despite the youth of the guitar, since it is a new instrument, the sound already has an exemplary scale. The Soloist 700 has THE sound from birth.
WITH THE CONGRATULATIONS OF THE JURY
Supervised by virtuoso guitarist Pierre Lelièvre, the Soloist 700 is a credit to the French brand. After the folks and the electrics, Prodipe Guitars comes to take place in the universe of the beautiful classical guitar, entirely massive, with a lot of timeliness and a total success, exemplary and remarkable.
