Greetings from Northern Louisiana

Post by Kenneth Shumway » Sat Jun 17, 2017 6:33 pm

I'm Ken. I'm a retiree who took up playing guitar a few years back but due to financial need I had to sell my guitar after a few months. I'm ready to start again. I could use some advice as I decide which guitar to buy. My first one was a Yamaha CG162S which by my inexperienced ear was a good instrument. However, though I would like to get a comparable instrument or better, even this modestly priced model is a stretch for my budget. I am thinking about a Yamaha cg122 or something similar in quality and price. I do want a solid top, not laminated. I'm leary of online purchases of used instruments and none are available locally. This would be only a short term use instrument as I will upgrade in the future. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Ken, welcome to the forum!

If you don't get any replies here on your guitar question, try looking in our Advice on buying section for relevant topics, and if you don't see your question answered already, you could repost it there with a suitably descriptive title.

Best wishes,
