Lightweight case (polyfoam) for an OM guitar? 3 Replies

I recently bought a Cort L450-O OM guitar - without a case. I have been searching the internet, and can find few cases for an OM guitar.  The guitar fits perfectly in my Guild GAD 30R hardshell…Continue

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

Catching up on posts today.  :-)

Florida Gull;

I have an Eastman AC412 and it's an outstanding instrument, at least I think so, especially for the price and workmanship.

:-)

Blackback Gull,

I don't have any RK guitars but I have one of the Recording King banjos and love it. Plays great, beautiful instrument and I got a bargain on it from a pawn shop.

:-)

Hoosier;

That is one pretty instrument!

Thanks FG!  Yes those are hibiscus flowers.  This our first try with them and you can leave them outside until cold weather and then bring them inside for the winter. Someone told us that you keep the plants sort of on the dry side and be careful to not water them too much.  What is your experience with them?  (I brought up in the Taylor owners forum about how you post photos without links)

The Recording King RO-10 and RO-06 are OOO body guitars, 1.75 nut. Love my RO-10, despite some problems - see the RO-10 Update post for details. They retail for about $350, solid spruce over solid mahogany - the RO-06 has lam sides and back, hence less expensive. The luthier who has done the work on the RO-10 for me just shakes his head every time he plays it - "This thing's got no right to sound anything like it does..."

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...

Enjoy!

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!
