I'll give a serious plug to the Emerald X7-OS for this--playability. I have arthritis in my left thumb, and went to the hand specialist yesterday. I can't play barre chords anymore without considerable difficulty (pain). I got a cortisone shot to see if that'll help.

The Emerald is the easiest of my guitars to play. I sold my HD-28 (nice guitar) and 00-18v (great guitar) because they both really hurt to play (and I had a Taylor 812 that I just never warmed up to). My H&D and J45 play pretty easy, but the Emerald, which I've only had a few weeks, seems to play the easiest.

Just thought I'd throw that out there if its a consideration.
