Hi all. I am looking for a small bodied parlor type guitar. I have been pining for one of these for a while and with Christmas comin' I wanted to get this in the wifes radar. I don't want to spend a tone of cash as I can't aford a Gibson Blues King EL-00 type guitar. I was looking at the Epi EL-00 http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Acoustic/EL-00.aspx Also as well as the Loar LH-200. http://www.theloar.com/LH-200.html Then there is a Wahsburn Parlor. But I am not sure about the sharp v neck on that guitar. Anyone played this and know if it is an issue? Also it looks like the new lower model does not have the darker finish anymore like its more expensive brothers any more judging from the Wahsburn site which kinda kills the look. http://www.washburn.com/acoustics/vintage-series/ Any suggestions or alternatives would be helpful. I can't go above $500 range so keep that in mind. Thanks.
