On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have about a 2 hour gap in my classes around lunchtime. Usually my friend Jamie (bassist/lead singer for a death metal band named Brodequin) and I go to a bar that's close and shoot pool and drink beer until our afternoon classes start, but this past Tuesday we were feeling dangerous, so we went to Guitar Center to poke fun at things (and he wanted to look at rack cases, but that's not the point either). Whilst goofing off, we went into the acoustic room where they keep the uprights and resonator guitars and acoustics and things, and played in there. Inside the tiny little classical guitar closet, we spied hanging WAY up high a Ramirez classical guitar that was priced at $6500±, and, of course, we just HAD to play this thing to see what playing a $6500 classical guitar would feel and sound like. So after about 15 minutes of A/Bing it against a $150 used Fender acoustic with brodequin, cannibal corpse, acid bath, and muddy waters songs, we decided that a $6500± classical guitar sounds and feels and plays basically the exact same as some used mass production Fender. Go figure. I guess my point is that expensive, I'm learning, doesn't exactly mean better.
