classical guitar decision.
    #2478867 - 03/27/04 09:02 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I am wanting to get into classical guitar.. I can't spend alot of money unforunatly.  I just want it as a study guitar.  I have searched and found 2 new guitars on ebay.  one is made by lucida LG 550 , and the other one is washburn c64.

I am thinking washburn but I want to get a second opinion.

i've got a washburn flamenco-style guitar and it is wonderful.

i've had it for 6 or 7 years. a couple years ago i bought a takamine classical, thinking i'd sell the wasburn. now, i'm trying to sell the tak, because i love the washburn too much to sell. it is superior to the takamine in every way.

mine is a cs-80 i believe, but i've had no experience with the one you are checking out.

check out www.musiciansfriend.com www.music123.com and www.zzounds.com
sometimes you can find great guitars at a major discount on those sites.

I've got a Classical, but it's a Spanish Raimundo. It's not that great, but it was just right in my range (bout 300.)
Do you have an amp that you'll eventually be playing through?  Having an acoustic-electric increases the price quite a bit, the same guitar could cost about 50-100 less without the electronics. But, it's all about what you intend to use it for.

Out of those two, I'd get the Washburn.  But unless it's a guitar I know I would like and know how it would play (like a nice strat or LP), I'd prefer to play it before I bought it.  Also, there's a really great guitar shop in my town...

Out of those two, :thumbup: with the Washburn

If you're trying to play straight classical, nylon strings are good.. but I play classical stuff on my plain ol' cheap ass acoustic.

Then again, I only know a couple of classical songs..

yeah I wanted the classical more for the sound it produces. I enjoy listen to way it plays. :smile:

I think I like the washburn too.  :smile:  thanks for the input.

I have actually tried out a similar model(washburn) at my local store. the lucida would be a guess since I have never heard of them.

Hey zero, awesome decision on classical guitar

Let me suggest Seagull guitars.  They have amazing sounds for amazing prices.  They are often compared to martin in sounds, and they do make classical models as well.

Seagull Guitars

Enjoy & good luck :smile:

Does the washburn come with a pickup or does it just have the little preamp/eq section by itself? I see a battery case but unless the pickup is under the bridge I don't know where it would be.

Anyways, to actually answer your question, go with the one that feels better.

You can get user reviews on just about every guitar at Harmony Central.

I actually dont see that particular Washburn there though. Only the C60, which got good reviews.
