Thread Name: Walden or Larivee Guitar? Which iBetter?
Subject: RE: Walden or Larivee Guitar? Which iBetter?
the thing that put me off the the l'arrivee was that the battery for the pre amp was on the inside and only accessible through the soundhole, which is pain the arse if you have fat hands - I had an Ovation like that.

the neck on the l'arrivee is rahter thin - a bit like an ols Martin. Nice guitar, but theres a lot of competition out there. Have a good look round.

i just love the new Faith Jupiters and they are cheap, but very good. I also have a Cort Parkway 360 M. Take a good look around. I broke my heart because a guitar shop suddenly hiked the price of a Taylor at the last minute. A friend counselled me - look around. I bought three guitars for less than the price of the Taylor - two faiths and a Cort. there really are some very fine solid wood guitars around at the moment. terrific value for money.
