Alejandro Cervantes is a second generation luthier who is building incredible guitars from student level to concert instruments. Here is his Milenia PE and Hauser PE. I have found both of these guitars to be the best value in this price range and in fact these guitars compare well with ones that cost twice as much. The first guitar pictured is the Milenia PE and the PE stands for palo escrito which is the back and side wood. This is a fantastic tone wood which looks great as well. The top is cedar and the Milenia has many great features including an elevated fretboard, 12 hole tie block, intonated saddle and lattice bracing. The sound is big and bold with great volume and a durable lacquer finish.

More traditional is the cedar topped Hauser style PE which has a traditional fretboard as well as fan bracing. The sound of the Hauser is less bold than the Milenia but very sweet.

 

Alejandro Cervantes also makes these guitars in three different levels from the PE to the concert to the signature model and they all get upgraded wood and tuners as you move up.


The Milenia PE is offered at $1950.00 and the Hauser PE at $1575.00
