However, you have to know what you're looking at on the second hand market as its easy to get burned if you don't have the knowledge. Take your time and do your research, you can get a bargain.
Well there's a lot less to go wrong with a used classical than with a used electric!Montgomery wrote:Thanks for your advice, I really appreciate it. My knowledge is fine with electric guitars and I would be confident in the secondhand market with those but not so confident in this market.
Well you could pretty much have both if you bought my Picado model 62 cedar double top advertised here.Montgomery wrote:Hi, I want to purchase another guitar for around £1500.00. The question is should I look for a new one or secondhand one, what's your thoughts please? I'm not sure which way to go.
£1,600 (without a case) plus VAT = £1920markodarko wrote:Not sure how much the Kent Classics Cadenza is going for these days but they are excellent if you need to buy new. I tried one myself and was very impressed; a hand-made luthier instrument for a fraction of the price.
I know many people cite value as a major influence when buying, but sometimes having something which has been "yours" from new is equally important to some.
Thank you, Sir Pat. Perhaps a bit out of the OP's price range but maybe worth stretching to if a new guitar is what's preferred. Can't think of anything in that price range that would compete new, really. Can you, sir?Pat Dodson wrote:£1,600 (without a case) plus VAT = £1920
No, if you look with your ears it'd be pretty hard to top it I guess though I take Adam's point about individual guitars (and individual tastes of course.) Well worth listening to the sample on Kent Guitar Classics' site. Very impressive.markodarko wrote:Thank you, Sir Pat.
