Small body guitar with a 1 3/4" or greater nut under $300? 11 Replies

I was led to wonder (awhile ago) if there were any relatively inexpensive guitars available with at least a 1 3/4" nut - oh, and a satin finish - or, at least, a satin finished neck.  I've found…Continue

Those look like hibiscus flowers - they are all over down here - I didn't realize you had them in Indiana...I guess they perish every year?

Hope you don't mind - but here are the pics of your BEAUTIFUL guitar so lazy people (like me) don't have to click...

I haven't had the opportunity to play a 12-fret steel string - from what I've read, it would be perfect for fingerstyle...

NGD!!  Love my Taylor 512e 12 fret!! NGD was actually on March 10, but could not remember to buy camera batteries. ( Ha ha!  so maybe I should say NGY . . .New Guitar Year)  The 512 12 fret is all I expected it to be and more.  Besides its beautiful looks, it is a super sounding guitar with that "broken in sound" and plays easier than any acoustic I've ever owned or played.  I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great sounding 12 fret.  Taylor did a great job on this one!

I believe it! I never liked the Explorers either.  I did kinda like the Firebird, but only in Stephen Stills hands!!!

Me too. I'd sell it and buy something I really wanted. Vs sound good, look ugly. The Gibson book says no one would buy them - that's why they hung them outside like a sign.

Being mostly an acoustic guy, I never liked "V" type Gibsons much, but I don't think I'd hang it outside!!! 

Comment by Michael S. Jackson on April 24, 2014 at 4:16pm

Hang it outside? Reminds me of one of the Gibson books I have where they wrote that flying Vs used to be hung - outside - in front of music store entrances.

With apologies to Mr. King, seems like a good use for them - just my opinion.... don't act like you're gut-shot!
