Cool Little Parlour Size Guitar

For those that may be interested, I found a Takamine EG630S for what appears to be a very good price at Sweetwater. I would be very tempted to snatch one up but the nut width is listed as 1 9/16"…Continue

"Cool! Thanks, Jeff! Yes, I agree - It'll take quite a bit of practice to get that up to speed for me as well. Ha ha. I think either approach on that bend is fine. They both sound good to me. The wide neck is great for this song. Especially that…"

"Good deal. That is the best possible outcome. If you went to a lighter gauge or even a different brand of strings that could have played a roll as well but the effect on the neck would have been very slight even if that were the case. (Certainly not…"

Chuck--that bar was JM's. Dime drafts on Mondays, dollar pitchers on Thursdays!

Hi Chuck,

 

Thanks for inquiring!  The B-1 models goes for $799 with Hardshell case, bone nut and saddle, and the B-1E goes for $999.   I see you're in TN.  Not sure if you know, but the Walden main office is now out of Nashville...

Hi Chuck;

Glad the info helped out. For the money and fit the case does a great job. I really liked my mini jumbo but have since traded it and another Martin for a higher end model Martin. The new owner of it really likes it. In fact he sold the Martin I traded him but kept the Seagull Mini Jumbo.

:-)
