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

I was pondering the purchase of a nylon stringed guitar, with a pickup, if possible. I almost bought a Cordoba C5e from Ted at LA Guitars, but I walked out with a Uke instead.  However, I played one…Continue

Congrats FG!!!  

My Gullmate and I have been married 22 years last month.  She likes the guitars and puts up with my disappearing after work many days to play with or fix them.

Elton - if you mean the Guild GAD F130RCE, yes I have - it is a very nice guitar.  I own a 2010 Guild GAD 30R, and I love it.  It would be interesting to put a Walden CO2000 and a Guild GAD F130 to a comparison test! :-)

The Gulls have been married for 10 years today!  Happy Anniversary to my wonderful wife, who appreciates my music and my passion for guitars - and my passion for her... ;-)

Here is a commemorative pic, which is relevant to this day because:

It was taken about 3 weeks ago, so we haven't changed all that much since then...

It was taken in Cocoa Beach, and we are going back there tonight...

We are wearing the same shirts today! :-)

Anyone played a Guild 130RCE? Seems like a worth competitor to the Walden CO2000.

Hey, All.  I l haven't posted much here, but I lurk here a lot.  My main guitar for recording and playing out is a GL570 that I've had for about 4 years.  I occasionally think about getting a higher-end guitar, but the 570 suits me so well, and I like it so much that I can't really see the point.

Anyway, I just released a new record and used the GL570 on every track.  My recordings are all very simple, single mic, single track stuff.  Stylistically that's just how I like it.  So if you want to hear the tone of an un-enhanced GL570 (ok, I add a little reverb) go ahead and check it out.

Happy Fourth of July!

FG, if he doesn't like what you are playing he is likely to let you know, loud and clear. 

My cockatiel screams bloody murder every time I play "Over the Rainbow" on the piano.  (Maybe it's the reference to bluebirds?)  He also doesn't like a new classical piece I'm working on by Muzio Clementi.  On the other hand, if I switch to something he does like, he immediately stops shrieking and begins to sing happily.

Birds are definitely little characters.

We have 8 birds.  Non of them play guitar but a couple have tried to chew on one!

Meet Walden - my Father's Day gift!  He is a moustache parakeet...and the new group mascot! :-)

He is more of a small parrot than a "parakeet" - the typical parakeet we have here is called a "budgerigar" in most of the rest of the world...we already have 6 of them... :-)

Named after Henry David Thoreau and "Walden Pond" - or after Walden Guitars - or both... ;-)

Hopefully he'll like guitar music - he'll be with me for the next 30 years or so - the race is on to see who dies first! ;-)

Here for your consideration is a FloridaGull playing a Taylor 710:

My friend Dallas is "holding" this guitar for a friend - I wish I had friends like that - I'm currently "holding" an Esteban for a friend's son - not quite the same... ;-)

Anyway, I liked the Taylor 710 - and I brought up my Walden G1070 and Seagull Performer for comparison.  Dallas liked the Seagull - except he finds the nut width a bit wide for him - but he's primarily an electric player.  All excellent guitars in their own right...

Work?  What's that? ;-)
