I've been learning to play the classical guitar, and I've started to get somewhat decent at it, so I treated myself.

My new baby, a ceder Cordoba C12. My other guitar is an inexpensive Yamaha CG122MSH.

The Cordoba has a solid top, sides and back. It also has a (somewhat) raised fingerboard beyond the 12th fret. The fingerboard on the Yamaha is just below 6 mm above the soundboard at the 13th fret. This height is a little above 12 mm on the Cordoba. The Cordoba has lattice bracing.

Here's a link to luthier talking about bracing patterns on guitars and lutes,and so on. It's pretty interesting.

Your kid is growing up fast. How old now?

Every time I look at my son he seems to be two or three inches taller.

I played trumpet for a while (it's one of my favorite instruments), but had to stop - it's just too loud to play around any kind of neighbors.

How does he do it without upsetting any neighbors?

Our 15+ year old Dodge minivan keep humming along...of course, it was made back before Chrysler started getting passed around like a Tijuana prostitute...

Not much of a problem this far south...they brine the streets in anticipation of snow maybe twice a year...then what actually falls is usually just rain which quickly washes away the brine coating...

Holy Cow, that's a nice guitar, freeradical! Congratulations on your purchase!

I personally believe that EVERYONE should play a musical instrument of some kind... glad you decided to pick up the classical guitar!

No. But she kind of is. She's been part of us since she was six weeks old.
