26 Mark W 6 months ago I am partial to Guilds but not exclusive and a little lucky as I love 12 strings. I mostly look for: Projection that is melodic and up front. Note/string articulation. Need to be able to clearly hear each on its own merit. Neck comfort. For me wider is better. My GADg212 plays acceptably but sounds fantastic. My Seagull Coastal has a softer sound and although it does not project as much aaaaas I prefer it has a very comfortable nut width of 1.9". Body size does not matter.
