The thread has been awakened by a member who, far from seeking advice, is advertising a website s/he is associated with which is actually offering advice on just this topic though we are invited to add suggestions about what the website might add to improve its advice.

So it's not clear that anyone here is seeking advice; or at least not in the usual way.

It's a fascinating topic of course so I'm sure that won't stop us. :D
Thanks for the insight. Evidently we are suckers, eager to share our profound knowledge on our beloved instrument.

At least Ted is still listed as an active member. Maybe he found his best-of-all-worlds beauty meanwhile and can report.

Edit: Well, I just checked. His last post was in August 2016. Quite a while ago.

Great minds think alike … :-) I also checked but it said he was logged in on the 17 March 2017. So definitely still about.

Don't be sexist! Guitars are definitely NOT like women, especially if you are a heterosexual woman. Otherwise, guitars may or may not be like women, depending on the guitar and the woman.

For me, it's the one that stopped all of the churn buying, selling, window shopping, over-analyzing and what-if'ing.

When the guitar speaks to you, when you can't stop thinking about grabbing it for just a little more practice time, when you feel the sense of awe upon opening the case, the beauty of even a single note...these sorts of things provide real and lasting value.

My guitar is expensive by many standards, but it put an end to so much other stuff that the benefit is significant.

I love my guitar. I hope you love yours too. :)

Best value classical guitar? Not bragging, but it's got to be the one I sold to a friend of mine for the cost of the materials. :cry:
