Got the guitar in perfect condition (was a bit affraid that may get damaged by the carrier). The guitar is light, has a good sound and is a great balance between quality and price.

A lot of guitar for the money.
Jan538, 08.08.2013
I was looking for a concert guitar with a narrower fretboard than the usual 52mm - this 7/8 La Mancha has 47mm, which is perfect for my little sausage fingers. Incidentally, there is also the model CM63 (without SN) with a wider neck, SN means as much as small neck.

The workmanship is impeccable, only a tiny speck of dust is enclosed in the matt lacquer. String position is not perfect but easy to play and can be easily optimized, the intonation is ideal for a concert guitar. I have not noticed any dull notes on the fingerboard and the sound is very balanced, neither bass nor treble are in the foreground. The volume could be a little more luscious, but is probably due to the shorter scale length and, consequently, the lower string tension.
Strings are according to La Mancha Info Savarez "special strings" :-) whatever the mysterious may be. Bad they are not but the strings are changed everywhere anyway and so I will probably raise soon D'addario EJ46.
The look is also quite appealing: simple but beautiful mahogany on the back and the sides, a relatively fine, if not impeccably grained, mirror-glued cedar top and the wooden (probably maple) bindings on the body give the Rubi almost a noble look. Beautifully simple and rounded off by the matt finish, which certainly develops a pleasing patina over time.

Conclusion:
People with small fingers or players who often switch between different guitars and therefore prefer a narrower neck, are well served with the Rubi CM63-SN. Playability, intonation, optics and workmanship are impeccable, a few (very few) cuts must be made to the sound volume, but where there is light is also shadow. I have played a lot more expensive guitars that have done much worse. At least nothing is wrong with this guitar.

Complement: after the D string of the Savarez "Special Strings" set was through, I raised D'Addario EJ46. These outstanding strings have missed the La Mancha once more a kick in the heels. It sounds even more voluminous and balanced with beautiful response, singing basses and overtone-rich heights - wonderful!

Another addition: according to the product description, the corpus binding is made of rosewood, and it looks the same on the photos as well. In my model here was definitely processed maple. This is neither better nor worse, only lighter than rosewood.
