Need an acoustic - Ur views plz
I know there are lots of similar posts around, so if the mods feel its not needed, they can delete the post and guide me to someone who can help.
I have an old Givson Crown 20 - been with me for over 17 yrs now - had a cheap pick up fitted in her frm Peter Periera's shop....and it sounds ok...The whole back came off from the bottom once and the ply chipped off a bit, and PP's shop got her fixed for me - sounds really good still, and hence I never felt the need for another acoustic.
Am an acoustic player totally, and am now hoping to buy a new one since I can afford it....however, my budget is well within 10k....more to the tune of somewht above 5k...
I saw Yamaha F210 at Bajaao.com for 5.5k - but I read abt F310 as well - what's the difference - price and feature/qltywise?
Anything better/comparable? How abt GB & A , Granada, and Pluto?
I checked out a Pluto at Haribhau's at Prabhadevi and wasnt impressed with her - cudnt connect with her. I played the Yamaha L series for around 2 hours at an expo once and was totally in love with how she sounded - but yeah I cant afford tht much!
Anything closer will do - I dont want an F-cut - lookin more for a box guitar.....
An acoustic classical (nylon strings) is also an option - though I donno how to play it, I`m sure thts not a problem at all...
As for ppl talkin of maintenance and all - i never used any polish etc on my Givson - at times wiped stubborn dirt with even nail polish removers (had lottsa stickers stuck frm childhood :( ) At times use a slight wet cloth too to wipe her off - used nail polish to draw lines instead of dot inlays on the fretboard, used vaseline and dosa-oil at times on fingers to play smooth, etc...... So now u know the kinda maintainer I am )
