How do the Walden Nylon/Classical guitars stack up ? 13 Replies

I’ve had a G570 for about 4 years now and it’s my only guitar.  I’ve used it to record my last 3 records, and with a K&K Mini in it it's been great for playing out.  It’s just a really well balanced guitar and perfect for solo acoustic guitar/singing gigs.  You can hear what it mine sounds like here. .

Well, we now have 48 members!  Only 2 more to 50 - welcome Two Waldens!

But - given the post below, you need to change your community name to Three Waldens... ;-)

Anyway - here's a link to the G570 - - solid cedar over laminate mahogany, for those who don't know - and a pic:


I personally have 2 Waldens - a G1070 and an N610CE - I think my N610CE is a 2005.  2 friends of mine have G570's - my friend Dallas has a G570TB, and my friend Terry has a G570.  They both like them - but Dallas plays far more than Terry...

My daughter has a T550 I bought her for her 15th birthday 2 1/2 years ago - so I guess there are 3 Waldens in the house...  ;-)

I've recently bought a G570 on Ebay.  It's ten years old, and hardly a scratch on it -- the neck is straight, and I can't wait to get it.  Does anyone own one of these, and if you do, could you tell me your experience with it?  I have two other Waldens, and am very happy with them, so thanks for your input.

FG- I haven't looked at the D710 in a couple of months since I sprayed the top and it looked like crap.  Orange peel, a couple of spots the lacquer didn't stick.  The lacquer got under the tape in a couple of spots and loosened the finish on the sides.  It'll be plenty hard when I get back to it.  I'm in no hurry.

Comment by FloridaGull on August 27, 2014 at 2:32pm

Ah yes - the D710.  How is she coming along?

I've actually played one of the D710's - nice tone (IMHO) from the englemann/rosewood...

That is at the Martin Factory.  

I've been a member of this group for a few months.  I have a Walden guitar I've been attempting to repair for many months.

Speaking of joining, we have 47 members now - Woo-Hoo!

We need 3 more so we can hit 50!  :-)

Comment by FloridaGull on August 27, 2014 at 11:30am

You are either very small people, or you are standing next to a very large guitar...  ;-)

Thanks for joining the Walden group, BTW...
