Hello from Illinois

Post by Steelin4u » Mon Jan 01, 2018 4:20 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm primarily an electric bassist, but I also teach beginner/intermediate guitar lessons. I have a degree in Music Ed. from Northern Illinois University, and have been teaching and performing semi-professionally since 1998. I currently teach elementary music grades K-5, and teach guitar and bass lessons, as well as gig on bass.

Like I mentioned, I am NOT a classical guitar player, but I love the instrument and do what I can with my steel-string-style, no-fingernail technique. My primary reason for joining this forum is to learn more about makes and models of classical guitars, as my Cordoba C7-CE (CD/IN) recently needs some work done to keep it playable, and in the mean time, I'm looking at other all-solid wood instruments and opinions about them.

From what wood combos I've owned, I'm convinced that I'd like a solid Cedar top, solid rosewood back and sides, in a guitar that has electronics but no cutaway. Verdict is out on nut width; I've tried ~1.75in. nuts, but also own a 2.04in. spaced classical for years.
