My aunt has been calling me and texting about what kind of guitar to buy and where to buy it. She wanted to look in pawn shops. I told her to give me a budget and let me buy something for her.
She wanted to spend around $200. I found a used Breedlove D20FS 7/8 scale. She liked the idea of a smaller bodied guitar. It was pretty beat up, and sounded a little dead, and the action was a little high. Decided against that.
I ended up buying a Yamaha FS700S in the natural finish. Nice sounding little guitar! Got it on a bit of a sale. I will get it to her this week.
Now, what kind of case/gig bag for a small bodied concert model like this?? Seems like the majority of cases are dread, jumbo, or classical. Should I go with a classical case? I'm thinking some kind of inexpensive bag. Buying it will be up to her - I just want to make a recommendation of something inexpensive, but decent. Maybe one of the Gator padded bags.
FYI. . .dude at the store was fairly peeved that I didn't buy a case from him. Then, he was ultra peeved that I asked for the box that the guitar came in.
