For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

hi all

I am moving to USA for 10 months or so for m the UK.  At the moment I intend to leave my two main guitars at home (Larrivee LJ and Fylde Orsino) and instead buy a good guitar in USA - good for flatpicking and fingerpicking.  Whats the best value - (2nd hand) Taylors seem much less expensive in USA relative to UK, but not sure thats the right sound - never had one.  Interested in any tips!  Prefer the 13/4" at nut..... not that I'm fussy!

many thanks in advance

cheers kerry - its Redding CA were off to - probably be a bit hot for me, compared to rainy England. 

Larrivee - as you see I am already a Larrivee convert - love that LJ, though they are a bit uncommon.  As I fingerpick too I would go for the L03 not a dreadnaught - but any views on flatpicking the L model?  I know its down to my ears when I try them but all feedback is good!

Also do you get 2nd hand Fyldes in US?  probably not, but thats my yardstick.... 

Wow!  Fyldes?  I'd like to know about those.  Yes, Larrivee is definitely outstanding!  If you were looking for something second hand - the solid wood Yamaha guitars really are great quality . . .and can sometimes be found in pawn shops for absolute steals.
