That music store guy must love you lately!! hahaha.. Buying guitars like crazy!
How does the guitar sound so far? How does it compare with the 4NE and 125Anos? Each individual guitar will vary of course, but I have heard some lower models that definitely compete with the higher models.
Actually the music store guy wishes I wouldn't trade him 4 low models of CG. I traded my Córdoba C1 protege, my Kremona knock off, relabeled Rodriguez CF3 and one other really bad guitar I can't remember what it was oh it was my daughters Córdoba Cadete and just about broke even. Oh well, he will sell them and make money off of them. I only owe him a couple hundred dollars now, but thanks to my transmission needing to be replaced, I had to stick it on layaway and pay it off in a couple of weeks.
This will be the second time I've bought a 2E. Had one long ago, and it didn't sound very good. Very shrill upper register. I got rid of it. This one sounds good. Not as good as my others, but sounds really full for a laminated back/sides guitar. This isn't in the same league as the others, but it is a proper guitar for a beginning student. And, with the right strings, it will sound even better. It has Savarez 520R on it at the moment. Previous owner put golpeadores on it. I want to remove them. Tone suckers. She also had it set up at the luthier that I use. If I can't find a better string for it out of the several brands iI have on hand, I could go with the Savarez. I just don't like how squeaky the trebles are. I just hope that I find a good, inexpensive set of strings for it. I am going to try the henSe strings on it first.
