    I'm assuming the back and side are laminate since they don't say solid?

    It still looks like a pretty nice nylon string guitar. It looks a lot like a Manuel Rodriguez classical I used to have, and that was a very nice guitar!

  5. Cutaways on nylon-strings are a deal-breaker for me.

    Ditto for the nut width.

    That, and I find the instrument kinda unattractive, anyway.

    I have never spent much time with a nylon string, but thats a beaut.

    It's a classical designed for non-classical players. The usual 2" nut would drive most non-classical players nutso.

    My last custom acoustic (steel string) had a wider than usual neck for fingerstyle playing, but not classical width...

  11. I'm a big believer in putting in the extra work.

    On the bright side - free is free.....

  15. Is it free? If so, then absolutely. Why not?

  23. Principle.

    It's just the way I'm wired; I'm a perfectionist, and kinda snobby about not doing things half-assed.

    :idk:

    +1

    Actually, I'm not a fan of cutaways on steel string acoustics, either....

  27. I'd exempt gypsy jazz guitars and archtops, but I'm in general agreement with you.

    Though I'd really like a Lowden.

    Well there are certainly worse character traits to have. :biggrin:

  31. You know, to take this further into the land of the highly opinionated...

    I can't think of more than a handful of guitar players who aren't associated with nylon-strings but still manage to get a great sound out of them.

    I look at the gypsy jazz guitars and archtops as a different species....
