Cassidy Guitars

Customer Review ~ Encounter CE711 and Gainford CA451

Review by Jeffrey Smith


Cassidy Encounter CE711


I’ve only recently come across The Cassidy Music Company and their truly outstanding guitars that retail at such competitive prices. The price of the CE711 belies the qualities of the instrument. Whether it’s the visual aesthetic, the build quality, the attention to detail, the easy playability, and, most importantly, the wonderful sounds, this guitar is far superior to any other similar guitars at around this price point.




I’ve been playing guitar for nearly five decades – All genres from classical (in which I originally trained) through folk to blues and rock. I have played hundreds of guitars and this guitar is exceptional. I have tried many similar guitars that are over £1000 that do not stand up to comparison with the CE711 from The Cassidy Music Company.




It simply oozes quality and it all hangs together to make a guitar that is a joy to play. A guitar to be cherished.



Gainford CA451


The Gainford Flame Maple Dreadnought is the second guitar that I’ve bought from The Cassidy Music Company. As with the CE711 ( my first purchase ), this guitar is a joy to play.



It exceeded my expectations in all respects. The visual appeal of Flame Maple, the build quality, the playability, the attention to detail and the beautiful balanced sound all combine to make an outstanding instrument at a very, very good price. It retains its balance and tone when amplified.



A gem of a guitar that, as it’s constructed from HPL, holds its tone in all weather’s, from the hottest summer day to the dampest winter night. A great instrument at a great price with great customer service.
