Hi, I've been playing off and on for decades - mainly classical but also instrumental arrangements of popular tunes and folk. I've recently retired and am now trying to refine my technique which has got sloppy over the years - although I started off playing technically correctly after years of tuition. In particular I need to get the proper "tone" back which I always used to have but has deteriorated with stiffening fingers and irregular practice. I live in England and have accumulated a large (too large) collection of guitars over the decades but I reckon the best I've got is a recently bought Cordoba C12 Spruce (B grade) which sounds beautiful and was a real steal at $800 - although I had to pay a lot of taxes to get it imported.
