"Amazing classical guitar for the price"

I owned a late 90's EC132SC years ago that I took classical lessons on for 5 years. I sure do regret selling that guitar. I replaced it recently with a new TC132SC. Aside from the electronics the guitars seem identical. I was stunned at how familiar the TC feels! This is a great guitar acoustically and plugged in. I use high tension (Augustine Regal Blue) strings and they seem to make this guitar very articulate and responsive. The cool tube preamp is over the top and allows me to find a sound through my acoustic amp (an old Carvin AG100D) that sounds close to micing the the guitar (yes, it is that good). I plan to add a second pickup to utilize the auxiliary pickup input in the preamp just to experiment. The onboard tuner is fabulous. This guitar is easy to finger and the cutout is a nice bonus. My main electric is a PRS 513 through a Mesa Mark V, so I have a taste for high quality instruments, but for my limited use of this guitar to study theory, practice sight reading, and getting immersed in the classical style, I can't possibly see needing more. There are many popular songs recorded wth this guitar! The fit, finish, and set up is superb out of the box, as is the case that it came in. BTW, I took a chance and bought a "blemished" model at substantial savings from zZounds and the guitar is just perfect. You can't go wrong with this guitar!
