I agree! Being a watchmaker, I get people bringing in their 2 week old Rolex asking me to polish out the first scratches. I always try to talk them out of it. What good is a watch if you don't wear it? What good will my guitar be if I don't play it?MarkInLA wrote:Just look at video close ups of the top-flight players' guitars..

I would recommend you Savarez 500 CJ first if you feel the string tension too high then 500 CR or Augustine Imperial Red. You just try, you will find better solution.MarkInLA wrote:BARRY, welcome to the C10 club ! As 'acmost' states above I agree that if the Savarez strings it comes with are too high tension for you, try EJ45s or any medium tension you like. I even had light gauge on at one time. Cordoba claims the C10 sounds best with the Savs it comes with. I've found it ain't necessarily so. Also found the action a bit high when new. I did file down the saddle in small increments (making sure I have another bone saddle if I mess up). If you must alter the bow of the fingerboard using the truss rod, truss me, gently make only 1/8 " (or, perhaps 2-3 degree) or less turns retuning for each change. It's a 'big feeling' guitar which may take time to bond with. I have and really enjoy it now.......M
I agree. To me the best bargain in the world is a used guitar. You do have to know what you are doing though. Craigslist is one good place, and I just came across a nice site for buying or selling a guitar, called Reverb. Lots of listings in every price range to buy, and if you are trying to sell a guitar the listing is free, with a reasonable commission.Gregory Gleason wrote:Always look for used instruments.

If you could get that R2 for less than a thousand dollars that would be great. Also, there is a used 2NEon Fleabay as we speak for 900 bucks. That might be good too. Don't think that your buying too much guitar. Those are within your budget and will serve you a long time, and have good resale when you go to trade up to a more expensive guitar later.Bill B wrote:he could buy a used ramirez r2 from me! or if he wants something new, Ive seen Manuel Rodriguez guitars i that price range (actually sometimes significantly less) that sound great.
