"Ok - IMHO, seek out and play a Walden T550 as a potential alternative to a GS Mini - at least, the spruce-topped version of the GS Mini. T550 is $300 street - online link here:…"

Currently have a Seagull S6 Slim and a Washburn D10. Looking to buy another guitar to add to the 2 or possibly sell 1 of the currents to add another. Looking at GS Mini (would buy 1 each of Spruce and Mahogany), Seagull entourage mini jumbo, seagull s6+ folk, breedlove c250/cme, or Takamine Gs430s. Any thoughts? wouldnt be opposed to also looking at taylor 214 or another recommendation. i'm mainly a strummer, dont necessarily need a "loud" guitar.See More

"Epiphone is about your best value for dollar out there.  I paid just over $800 for the one in my photo which is a Masterbilt.  I got a regular Epiphone for my son for about $350.  They have lots of models for under $500."

"I just looked an the EXPs are phosphor bronze, and the Elixer Poly's are 80/20. Honestly I never played that much attention to it, until you asked and now I see where the slight sound difference comes into play so I might give the Elixer Medium…"

"I use Elixer "Medium" Polys on my EJ-200 Artist and they are pretty good and sound great, but I used D'Addario XLP Mediums last time on it and actually liked them better.  I just replaced them with the Elixers like I used to use…"

EJ200 Artist String Preference.

Recently returned a seagull mini jumbo as sound was too thin and bought an EJ-200 artist natural. Just got it in the mail today. Any recommendations on strings for a jumbo from anyone? I've read alot of recommendations for Elixir Nano's...see some people say light-mediums, others mediums and some even custom lights. What are your favorite strings for the EJ200 or another jumbo and what gauge do you use? typically I'm more of a strummer.Thanks! Appreciate your thoughts. Realize its a matter of…See More
