Subject: RE: Looking for a beautiful guitar
In the Toronto, Canada area you cannot do better than go to the Twelfth Fret on Danforth Avenue. They are probably the best acoustic guitar store in the country, and they have the most unbelievably lovely guitars there for you to play. I was there a couple of weeks ago, and played several smaller body OM size guitars that sounded utterly superb, and very comfortable to hold and play, due to the smaller body.
The best were a Santa Cruz OM and a Bourgeois OM. Hard to choose between them. They were in the Cd $3000 to $3500 range, and well worth it.
I'd happily buy the Santa Cruz, but it would be a pointless extravagance for me to do so at this time.
