  • A or B?

    So my nephew is in the market for a new guitar and has somehow whittled the contenders down to 2. I'm not sure they would be my choices at the price point but each to their own. Limited options and the necessity for electronics in order to accompany me at our aunts forthcoming wedding may be factors. He wanted my opinion on which is the better guitar. He asked me not to confuse him further by offering more options so I didn't. They are the recording king RD126 FE2 and the fender CJ290sce. I looked both up and while the fender looks nicer to me, the RK is all solid wood.It also comes with a bone nut and saddle and the fishman matrix system. For these reasons I've said IMO the RK is the better deal. I also said I'd run it by the fine folks at the HCAG forum for a consultation from more experienced and knowledgeable people. So, what say ye??

    Given the two choices, I'd go for the RK. Much more bang for the buck when compared to the Fender.

    Alternatively, has your nephew checked out Yammies? They'd be viable contenders in what I think is the price range here.

      Your assessment of the guitars is sound.

          I'd rather have the RK than the Fender.

              Recording King by a mile, unless the logo is twice as important as the rest of the guitar.

                          Ok so does that mean you'd have the fender or no on the fender? ixnay = Nix? Nix??? lol Never heard of pig latin either so no wonder I was lost... If only there was a way for us to communicate using another means...
