If you hadn't said the guitar was cheap, I wouldn't have noticed. Nice work.
Always liked Samick's "Greg Bennett" body shapes, but sorry, that headstock -- which was on the entire electric line for a good long while -- has got to go.
Crappy guitar into great amp = great sound.
Great guitar into crappy amp = bad sound.
isn't samick made in the same factory as a lot of 'fancier' guitars?
I don't think it's in the guitar moreso the plyer. The late, great JJ Cale played a single pickup double cut with soundhole ( ebay for $450) Danelectro and played some great pieces on a Tacoma ( Asian Guild) acoustic and HE was worshipped by Clapton and many millions worldwide. He didn't show off but that Oaky Shuffle (in The Breeze and more) is testimony to his playing.
It's sometimes where you don't play, the backbeat, that can turn a whole song and rhythm around.
I should start a thread called "Sounding Bad With An Expensive Guitar" because I've done this plenty of times (and truth be know, I know a bunch of guys locally who do this all the time).
True. I paid $150 for it with a cheap cardboard case. That's about 43 years ago. At 3% compounded inflation, that $150 would be about $535 in today's money.
My Yamaha FG160 sounds better than any $500-$600 guitar you can find today.
Admittedly, i did spend about $170 a few years back for a new saddle, nut and set up to make it play much better. It doesn't play quite as good as my Taylor 314, but it sounds better.
That sounded very nice. The whole thing is great. She has a beautiful soulful voice and a nice guitar tone. Thanks for sharing.
I've never heard a bad thing about Yamaha acoustic guitars.
