"I had the similar experience with the Seagull Entourage that demonstrates the benefits of playing the guitar you buy. I auditioned several used and new CW guitars of this model and 1 non-CW and all sounded a little different. I didn't note any…"

"+ 1 ... (agree 100%) ... Unless you just don't trust your own ears and fingers, don't put your all of your faith in anything you hear on the web.  Way too much is simply subjective opinion. Play lots and lots of guitars before you…"

Bet you didn't expect to start all this.  Just go play lots of guitars until you find the one that sings to you.  That is what I did and everyone else as well.  Be open minded about it.  I really thought I wanted a Martin, had the money and everything.  Then I played the guitar I have now and Martin ideas flew right out the window.  Lennie is right when he says "It's fun" you get to play many guitars of different make and construction and you get to learn the differences, similarities in both tone and playability.  Take your time and find "the one".  Back to that Matrix reference since I am big TRIC case fan. And I'm out.
