I had a fun afternoon today. My mom told me that my cousin (after seeing me play guitar), wants to pick up one to mess around with. Me, being the good cousin that I am (and gear whore), did a bit of research and purchased this (at a good price might I add ): http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3782149798
She was looking at a really poor one and doesn't have a clue about this sort of thing, so I saw it and figured this will do the trick. This will be the coolest birthday present ever and I can't wait to give it to her, I know she'll flip.
C'mon... practically $100 flat for a solid top, decently built acoustic with mahogany and spruce? I haven't played an Alvarez I haven't loved yet, and judging by the grain of the wood on that guitar, I have a feeling it's going to sound great!
