Thread Name: guitars for women
Subject: RE: guitars for women
Well, Rapunzel, I've been on a girl guitar fetish for a while and have found some jewels. We're going to have to talk about that budget though. Requires a lot of luck to find cheap and good. We're talking love here. How can you put a price on that?
I've had everything from a single 0 to a dreadnaught 'cause I been lookin' for the perfect guitar. Still lookin'. Found some danged nice guitars in the process though.
I stick with the narrow necks when I buy sight-unseen, but it's not just about width, also about shape. And size wise, I actually find the single 0 size causes me to curve down around the guitar. My all time best fit and sound (I'm 5'4"), is 000 and 0000 size. But, I play my single 0 the most 'cause it's got character. (Now my sister Janie has so much character she don't need no guitar.)
Good luck. It's the journey, not the destination.
