I've been looking for a new guitar for a while, and I'm beginning to love smaller guitars. They're more comfortable to play, IMO, and I prefer the sound over the boomy lows you get out of jumbos or dreadnoughts. The problem is, most places around me dont carry any decent small bodies. I've played a few that i really like, but they're more than a little out of my price range. I've never had a chance to play all the ones that seem perfect, in theory. Can i get some opinions on these? Other small types i should check out?
Martin 00015M (I actually played a used Martin that seemed like a really old one of these. Sounded great, but it was extremely worn and i wasn't sure if it would be worth the money.)
Gibson Blues King (This one is out of my price range. I was planning saving up for it, but i'd like to get a nice guitar before college next year, and if i had $2K lying around it would go to tuition.)
