Hi there,

I started out 2years ago and my tutor lent me a 1 3/4” Martin in class while my yamaha at home was 1 11/16”. It did annoy me everytime I go home and practice with my Yamaha as it felt different!

And of course, there’s a big sonic difference between the Martin and Yamaha as well.

I ended up getting a Taylor which is 1 3/4” and I felt much better.
