A 52 mm nut with a 650 mm scale is standard. I like Rodriquez. I purchased both of mine used and I would recommend that "used" is more bang for the buck. I paid about $100.00 or so for my C3F.frankoregan wrote:Thanks so much Blondie/Bear/Lovemyguitar for your feedback and answers - really really helpful.
I half suspected what your response was going to be. Ah well better to know now rather than struggle with an instrument just because I have it.
The Yamaha is immaculate, so I expect that I'll get a good price for it.
If you were to in my position what instrument would you go for? I'm limiting myself at about €500/€600 (on the expected proceeds of the above sale).
Regarding my other half, she's pretty good to be fair. I bought a pretty expensive bike there last year after much deliberation. (That's my technique, deliberate and hum and haw until she says...."will you just buy the bloody thing!")
Excellent, thanks for letting us know! Enjoy the guitar and the lessons -- you are entering a wonderful musical world! Cheers!frankoregan wrote:Scored myself a Cordoba C7.

some evenings with a bottle of wine, the new songs you've learned on guitar and some candlelight and your wife will even let you buy a second guitar and then somefrankoregan wrote:Scored myself a Cordoba C7.

I once had an "other half" that would nag about me spending money on guitar stuff. I traded her in on a new "other half". Life has been much happier that way Ha Ha!FrankORegan wrote:Hi there
I've just joined the site and have a question regarding the disadvantages of using a crossover to learn classical guitar.
The reason I ask is that I picked up a Yamaha NTX1200R a few years ago for a ridiculously good price and intend to use this in my studies.
I'm aware that it may not be the best idea....but telling my other half that I need to buy another guitar may also not be the best idea.
Any thoughts (or a direction to posting this query elsewhere) would be greatly welcomed.
Oh my God Bear, I must be old. I've actually been in one of those. My dad had one. As long as the bilge worked, you were good. Drove down the boat ramp in it and went to the other side. Aqua car was sure funny looking though.bear wrote:I'd put the hybrids in the same category as this;
