Totally spur of the moment. First time out of the house in days due to the snow.
Took a trip to the guitar shop. I had in mind a Taylor GS Mini-e Koa and that was exactly the guitar staring me in the face as I walked up to the acoustic section! It was used and I got £50 off the quoted price. Sounds loud, not as good as the Larrivee but so much easier to carry to weekly acoustic jams in its small case. It's got elixir 13s on it and is a tad buzzy, just a tad. Might try 12s and I read some people like to change the tuners and maybe also the nut & saddle but will see about all that - I probably wont. Felt good, sounded, compact - deal done.
Let me know if you can't see the pic. I just too kit briefly on my phone - so busy...
The top and bottom have a colour tinge, I think it's just the wood.. and some markings on the ebony fingerboard which again is just the wood and give sit some character. Anyway, there you go. Didn't fancy paying the new prices (I was just saying this very day in another thread) so when I saw this exact guitar used staring me in the face I had to have it!https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B59lkNr26fmlOXpzMzAwREREenlvOG5pTWFqQ0FEODBWSHdV
