Good to look at a bunch of guitars. They are fair and straight-forward in their business practice.
If you make it up to Blaine, stop by my place.
I just might do that one of these days. I am going to Seattle tomorrow to see the rock band Night Ranger at a casino show, but I will have the whole day until about 2pm. After that we will be hanging out with the band until the show.
I play a Ramirez 4NE, as it was the best guitar I could find in the Eugene, Oregon area. But I am now searching for a better, or should I say different sound. I am going to be looking especially at Spruce guitars. I am going to try lots and see what characteristics I like about the guitar's that I try.
It's going to be a long process. I am looking for "the one" in a way. Now that I know a bit about CG, at least more than I knew two years ago, I believe that I can spend my money more wisely than in the past. Like many, I had my start on a Cordoba C5. So when the Ramirez came along, after the C5, and lots of other lower end CGs, I was blown away. But now, as I've grown up a bit, not so much. I just got rid of two other Ramirez in the last several months and I want to try other makers, but won't be able to buy one until next year at the earliest. I am in "kicking tires" mode now. I played a guitar by Argentinian luthier Esteban Gonzales that I liked, but it was far beyond my reach as of late.
