Well I sold my vintage Silvertone classical and there was an empty slot in my guitar stand so that gave me a good enough reason to go out and buy another guitar.  Please refer to Guitar Logic 101 if…Continue

"The one at Wolfe was new - a 2011 model. I have seen and played it - lovely. Worth a call to see if it is still there - Jay Wolfe and Graham Zebedee are good people - if you hear an English accent, you've got Graham... Did you check out the…"

"Thanks for all of your suggestions.  That LaPatrie Hybrid is gorgeous.  The one Wolfe Guitars had - was it used?  I was on Amazon and it's almost $1000 so if there's is new, wow, that's a great price."

Need Your Opinion On A Couple Nylon String Guitars

I'm in the market for a nylon string guitar.  I sold my old one and just really miss having a classical.  I did a search prior to posting and found that most of the topics posted were a year or older.  So since the market is constantly changing, I thought I'd ask for some new advice instead of relying on the older posts.First of all, I want it to sound like a classical.  I don't mind if it's an Acoustic/Electric.  Secondly, I don't want it to go over my budget of $800 so that basically knocks…See More

"Well Alvarez got back to me very quickly.  This Regent 5212 was made in July 1994 in Korea and originally sold for $189.00.  A nice company and a very pleasant E-mail. :)"

"Thanks for filling me in on my new guitar.  I've been enjoying it so far - it sounds really nice for a Laminate.  And yes, I will not miss the old iPod.  I prefer playing rather than listening to other people play! :)"

FloridaGull replied to Lisa Thoms's discussion New, Well Kind of, Guitar I Picked Up This Past Weekend
"Well, I'd say you got a good deal, as no actual money changed hands, and it sounds like you'll use tha Alvarez more than the old iPod... ;-) Alvarez, in general, makes a decent guitar - the Regent is their low-end, all-laminate series, but…"

New, Well Kind of, Guitar I Picked Up This Past Weekend

I picked up this Alvarez Regent 5212 this past weekend.  Actually, I found it on Craigslist and watched it over a couple days time.  It started out at $120 and finally the guy had it on there for just $60 with it's soft case.  I know it's a beginner guitar and since I'm a beginner I thought why not?  I already have two guitars but what's one more am I right?  I went out to do some errands and really thought it would be goneby the time I got back but it was still there and I suppose he was…See More
