I had played few Picado guitar in the past, including AP60. I am very sure your AP60 will outplay all those Yaya Papaya guitars.
It will make them "Pi Bo Yan" (cannot smell the smoke).
Haha, Thanks! But I don't like to compare. I have 2 guitars, AP60 and CG192C. Personally, I find they are unique by themselves, for sound, tone, finishing, etc. etc. and I'm in love with both of them. So, they will stay with me for the rest of my life, nothing more. Just like my one and only wife. Kind of contented person, I am. Nevertheless, I would still like to look around and play other made and models for the fun and feel, and I truly respect every piece of them. It's all the hard work and sweat putting into every one of them, from the trees to the delivery, despite they are handmade or factory made.
I'm more to music playing than to collection of the finest instrument. That's why I know nuts about guitars; their brand, their material, whatsoever, in the past 30 years until I read this forum and starts to learn a bit here and there from people like Tom, yourself, and many more. I believe the highest level is able to play the best piece of music with any price tag of guitar and still sound nice. Just like the most powerful swordsman can use any tree branch he pick up and fight like he is holding the best sword on earth. But of course, different branch, different sword will have a different type of cuts and wounds on the enemy, but the end result should be the same. A childhood belief that has followed me a long way.
I know I have kind of a weird thinking, anyway most musicians have their weird weird thoughts (my friends said). But that's me, most important is 问心无愧. Hahaha!
Without heart and desire, talent is nothing.
