Well, I suppose the PRICE of the thing, but it's Brazilian and Engleman! Gallagher out to do an East Indian and Sitka model, in my opinion.
If they do, or someone makes something comparable to this guitar, PLEASE let me know.

I seriously doubt that anyone in this forum would NOT know all about what these guitars are. Sure, I'm doing some self promotion here, but the truth is that I would really appreciate feedback on it. In any case, I at least hope that nobody feels offended by me publishing blogs here that link to Hubpages.com articles that I produce.…Continue

I've never once put my hands on one of these things - not that I recall, anyway. I've been fooling with steel string acoustics since I was twelve years old though, and me and my grandfather used to hit every flea market within a hundred miles to buy them cheap, repair (if needed) and re sell them.

I know I know. You don't want to hear about Japanese guitars. I'm sorry, I recently played one that was so good a guitar that I have to talk about it. Hell, I created a nice webpage about Yamaki brand acoustic guitars because the one that my Uncle Thomas owns is so nice.

So I've begun focusing some practice time on flatpicking Irish tunes on bouzouki. I know—heaven help us all! I'm starting out learning a tune I play on flute known as “Patsy Geary's” (no, the other "Patsy Geary's”). The version in particular is from Harry Bradley, which I got while at the Frankie Kennedy Winter School back in 2007.
