1 giffenf 1 year ago As luck would have it, two of our new songs are fairly Latin-adjacent, to the point where using a nylon-string guitar for the rhythm part, even the solo, seems like a pretty good idea. Rehearsals so far have borne this out. But even with my compromise, er, crossover Alvarez acoustic-electric (mahogany body, cutaway and a pickup, but still classical-size and classical neck), the playability isn't all I could ever want. This is not the guitar's fault. With all the classical guitar playing in my past, I oughta be able to get used to it again pretty quick. But then again, I'm old now. And it's looking like my left hand just wants a thinner and slightly less-wide neck. But at this point, it's only two songs, so investing in a higher-dollar guitar may not be the most prudent thing to do. So, on with the hunt.The most obvious choice would be a Godin Multiac Nylon, same scale as a Tele, 1-7/8" nut, 2" thick body, and feedback-resistant as they come. Not wild about the tone at first blush, but haven't ruled it out. Córdoba GK models, Yamaha NTXs, a different model Alvarez (though all the ones I've seen look like newer versions of the one I have)? Anybody played those $400-$500 Breedloves? Seeking recommendations. Found a near-perfect guitar, the Martin 000C, but oh wait, $2,000. That ain't gonna work for now.All suggestions welcome. Haven't ruled out just modeling a nylon-string on my Boss GP-10, but this is an opportunity to have another guitar on stage somewhat legitimately, and I'd hate to pass that up.
