"I'm wondering which Walden you are talking about - the O model (Orchestra Model)?  If so, the O550 (solid spruce top, lam sapele back and sides) has a 1 11/16" nut width - but a 25.5 inch scale.  The higher-series O model - the…"

"Mike I - For different (significantly so) reasons than yours, I have played both the Baby Taylor and their GS Mini.  Of the two, the GS Mini has by far the most "real guitar" sound, to my ear.  Neither was suitable for me, since…"

"I'll put in yet another plug for the Voyage-Air. The thing is a player, that's all. I mean, you can spend a lot of money on the holy grail small body custom that does what you want, but do you really want to travel with it? Unless you are…"
