Default Solid mahogany/rosewood purfling

It is amazing how much guitar you get for your money from pacific rim builders. Solid mahogany (very nice back) and the rosewood purfling is a nice undersated touch. I hate it when someone say I'd buy it but, but I ordered an Emerald 3 days ago. Good luck on your sale.

This one has been tempting me. Can you give me another more well known guitar maker/model that this compares well to....

I assume it doesn't have electronics.

How's the neck shape/size?

thx

Pete

Hello Pete-Correct, no electronics. Sorry, but I'm really not good at describing neck shapes-the closest acoustic I have owned size wise was a Larrivee OM and that neck seemed to be a little thinner. I know the fretboard has a 12" radius and the that most Martins use same size frets (from John at Pono: fret wire is nickel/silver, .080 wide, and a standard medium height soit’s not thin and not jumbo).

Hope this helps.

That does help. Thanks. I love taylor necks and I very much respect larrivees. I almost bought a gs mini yesterday. This one is definitely on the list!

i have the C10-DC and can say these guitars are stellar. At this price, this is a great buy, and you’ll be hard pressed to find anything this well made at a similar price point.

Now for the standard disclaimer: I do not know the seller, nor will I gain anything from the sale of this Guitar.

I will agree! These are very nice. This will smoke any GS Mini. I had a 12 fret Slope Dread Mahogany/Sitka Pono that was the most bang for the buck ever.

The neck on mine was billed as slim but I found it closer to Medium. The Nut and Saddle spacing were 1.75" and 2 3/16" like most Taylors. The neck was similar to a newer Taylor but just a bit more full and I have small hands... SIGH

I hope this helps. And I do not know the seller either...

Best on this

Paul
