Subject: RE: Joan Baez 0-45 guitar
Yep that sounds great, and looks good too.
I'm not in the financial group that could afford one of those (even were they available), but I do have a 000-28 which is also light and really comfortable to play.
It's quite true, as observed above, the dreadnoughts can feel a bit awkward to play. I have a D-28 and its 12 Daddy, but, whilst they sound fabulous, the smaller bodied instrument is by far the most comfortable.
Isn't it great to see such a nice instrument played to accompany a singer of her talent and ability. I've followed Joan Baez since the mid 60s, we are blessed to be able to sample her talent.
Hope she's recovered from her fall - I mean what was she doing . . . in a tree? Bless her.
