The Admira Infante is certainly one of the nicer smaller classical guitars currently available. Build quality is good, as you would expect, and consequently the tone and resonance is excellent for its size. The stand out feature of this model is, however, the overall profile.
It is built as a 'student' model and as a 3/4 size it is perfect for those with a smaller reach. However the neck is much slimmer than the standard model which makes it perfect for smaller fingers and for improving technique.
Being a 3/4 size instrument you might expect a lack of sound quality when compared to something full size but the Infante has a surprisingly full tone. The Sapelli sides give the tone a richness with the pine top giving the added crispness needed for those complex single line motifs that are spun out of Spanish Classical guitar music.

Even with my limited guitar knowledge I can see that this is a really nice piece of kit. A lot of the guitars on our site are reviewed by guitarists naturally enough, but this one was given to me as a non-guitarist just to see what I thought! It looks great, really nice little design around the sound-hole and has a solid, but light feel to it.
The smaller neck would be an advantage for me as I have smaller hands than some, but a colleague showed me a few chords which I could play with ease.
