Guernsey Pete Folk Size vs. Dreadnought Size Guitars? (28) RE: Folk Size vs. Dreadnought Size Guitars? 18 Mar 11


If you have a budget, Martin are now making their little brown 00-17s again. I'm lucky, I've got an old one, '39, but this is a lovely little guitar, not too big, the 00 size gives a balanced sound across the range. Not too loud, but responsive. They are also doing spruce-tops with a composite/ply neck. Not sure about those yet, the only one I know is played by a very hesitant older lady learner, so it isn't really developing as it should.
But the big questions are;
Do you like how it sounds ?
'''    ''      ''       ''    '' feels ?
And will it project sufficiently for what you want it for ?
