I saw some CG171SF bargains on CraigsList over the weekend. It's good that you grabbed one of them. I'm not that excited about the matte-finished CG172SF. I think the older CG171SF is more guitar for the money ... and you still pay less money when you buy used.Hidy Ho wrote:Didn't make it to the South Bay Guitar Festival; however, I did manage to get a nice CG171SF with a case locally for a good price.
I'm still very happy with mine and play it a bit more than my much more expensive flamenca negra.
Too bad that you missed Grisha Goryachev's clinic but he may be there next year. You could also just contact him and arrange for lessons. He's one of the best in the Bay Area for both classical and flamenco.
