You do realize the CG22 is also Chinese made? The GC32 is the first made in Japan guitar in the series. I own a GC192c and its a great guitar. I also had a GC32 and yes it is better, but its also about $1,200 more. R
Yes I do know that it’s chinese made. I was hoping to run into a gc32 at this store.
I don’t mind Chinese made at all. I was just wanting to compare a cgxxx, gc22 and gc32.
I’m already heading down the slippery price slope of guitar shopping. I was on a bunch of luthiers websites last night thinking I may just place an order. I really liked my Walker. I think that is why I liked the Yamaha cg192s I played today. It had a similar sound to my old Walker it was just that the volume was way down.
So now I’m thinking I may just play my Cordoba (or go pick up that Yamaha) to play with for now and have Johnny Walker make me a guitar.
I always have to make these decisions harder then they need to be. :)

I have both CG192s and GC22S, GC22S is definitely louder guitar with balance tone and projection.

Wow, you've got quite a collection of guitars! How would you compare the Picado 60 against the GC22 (or 32) One better than the other or are they just "different "? I've been very interested in both guitars, so I thought I'd ask.

I think Picado 60 has more sustain. GC22S is spruce top and Picado 60 is ceder top. They are not much different in volume. I got the Picado as used one and GC22s as the new one from Yamaha showroom. So GC22s still needs sometime to be opened up. I prefer the neck profile of Picado which is thinner than Yamaha and thus easier for me to play.

When I started to take Classical lessons about 4 years ago I started on a Cordoba C5. I thought it was ok but I didn't want to spend much in case I didn't enjoy classical. I have a Cordoba C7 now, since I got it used for such a good price, and it is much better I think than the C5. It just sounds much better for only being 1 step up. I have played the C10 before but also heard that the C12 is a very nice guitar. Have you decided on what guitar you have decided on? I know I played a Yamaha and it was nice. I can't remember the model number but it was right at about $1,000 new though. I started my classical lessons up again after taking a couple of years off and would like a nicer classical. I have always wanted to play a really nice top rated classical guitar just to hear one play. Maybe one day.

My intentions when I started this was to just get a good production guitar. But just like the last time I bought a classical guitar I jumped in head first. I decided to commission a guitar from a luthier. :)
So wile I’m waiting on my new guitar to be built I’m using the c5.
