Pushing the boundaries in classical guitar design, the Lindo 960CEQ still maintains traditional appeal. But with modern features such as the on-board preamplifier with chromatic tuner, you can broaden your horizons. Inspired by Pablo Picasso’s Blue Guitar, the striking body top finish stands out from a crowd of plain wood tops. The tasteful inlays are sure to please those with an eye for detail.
With the nylon/steel-string combination, the spruce top gives this guitar brightness and sustain. The mahogany body and neck provide further tone-enhancing qualities for a good low-end response. This guitar has snappy mids and harmonious highs. The Venetian cutaway design in the body looks stylish and also gives players easier access to the higher register of notes on the fretboard. With this kind of versatility available, the Lindo 960CEQ will appeal to traditional classical and flamenco players as well as modern, percussive and virtuoso styles.
Having an on-board EQ with bass, middle, treble and presence, the TOPS-4T preamplifier takes this guitar to new levels for playing live or recording at home. With the dual jack and XLR outputs, you are able to connect to a guitar amplifier, PA or recording interface and the integrated chromatic tuner function provides quick and easy tuning via a backlit LCD.

41 reviews for Lindo 960CEQ Classical Electro-Acoustic Guitar – Picasso Blue
Having recently taken up guitar lessons again I was struggling with my old narrow necked acoustic guitar and was advised to look at a wide necked classical guitar and this Lindo electro acoustic guitar was just what I wanted, a great guitar for the money and I love the Picasso blue colour as I wanted something a bit different. It arrived a day earlier than I was expecting in great condition and after tuning it I plugged it in to my amp and was delighted with the sound. I would definitely recommend this guitar to anyone who is looking for a great value, wide necked, electro acoustic guitar.

This guitar although classical in design is very bold in its colour concept and overall looks… it plays very well and is strikingly different to anything else out there especially for the price !.. I use this guitar as a ‘back up’ for my Takamine classical… it certain does not disappoint !.. Worth giving it a look…you cant beat it for value / price..

Loved the other reviews, couldn’t believe the price. Detailed info on Lindo website too. Just had to get it at this price and free delivery. Good customer services too.

I like Lindo guitars – I own quite a lot of other makes, some high end ones too, and I have never been disappointed by one of the Lindo’s so far. Their design philosophy seems to work well and they care about their instruments.
But what I didn’t have in my guitar colletion were many nylon strung guitars – my others are all steel strung except for one nylon acoustic, so I thought adding another would be good. Especially since the Picasso was an electro acoustic and that opened up some possibilities for recording. The Picasso arrived very quickly, well packed, and was in lovely condition – as with other Lindos this Picasso is very well made, solid and looks made to last. Nylon strings need to be bedded in and regularly retensioned in the first weeks, though they do settle down after a while. The strings that the Picasso comes with are not the best – a more resonant set to replace them would be a wise investment. I have gone for some D’Addarios and suddenly the Picasso starts to ‘sing’! Especially in the higher registers on the topmost strings. It has a very pleasing musical intonation. The looks are unusual, but I really like the design. You would have to spend perhaps twice this to get a classical guitar that was as good, I feel – and that is before the electro-acoustic is taken into account. It boasts both a jack plug and balanced XLR output. Very easy to play, action is very good – if you want a good nylon strung acoustic to keep for a long while, this is definitely one to consider. Very highly recommended.

Very good guitar sound is great, preamp with tuner is a big plus. Only thing that is lacking rae the stap peg, which I have to put in myself. Would be nice if it comes as standard. Otherwise no complain and will buy another lindo guitar in the future.

I have had a Lindo guitar before, a couple of years ago when i lived somewhere else. Unfortunately, due to circumstances at the time, i had to let it go. I decided now that i am on a firm and stable footing again, to pick up playing the guitar again. I decided on this one after a lot of research and it arrived today, well ahead of time and very well packaged.
Upon taking it out of the box, i was immediately impressed with its looks and feel. I must of spent about 20 minutes alone just looking at the guitar, trying to find any blemishes or marks but as i expected, there was non. It is in absolute perfect condition.
Playing the guitar a little, i didn’t expect it to be in tune, but to my surprise, it was in tune! I just know now that i am going to be getting a lot of joyful time playing this amazing guitar. It is absolutely stunning to look at and sounds amazing when played. Lindo really do pay attention to detail, and for the price, well i don’t think you are going to come remotely close to finding something else at a similar price that will have the same quality as this! Or even sound as beautiful as this!
I will be building up a collection of guitars as i progress, and i definitely will be returning to Lindo to buy more.
I highly recommend a Lindo guitar for anyone, especially this one.

You must start with the premise that this is a cheap guitar and being ultra criitical the finish looks cheap close up but I feel this is more than compensated for by the lovely tone especially in the lower range.I should point out that I am not a talented musician far from it.
I have had reason to phone Lindo Guitars and to be able to speak to Mark regarding the impossibility of keeping the bass E string in tune he informed me that it would take two or more weeks to stay in tune, well it still doesn’t but is a little better any way who needs six strings!
Mark, who is a very helpful guy, whom I will have to phone next week regarding the purchase and use of a small amplifier and the complexities of restringing I think you need knitting needles the strangest anchoring system I have ever seen ( But this is my first Classical guitar)
I really recommend this guitar I think it is great value for money and I don’t think you will regret it
