Re: Boulder Creek ECL-4, good Classical?
BC's are decent guitars- they are a bit off the beaten track for classical nylons though.
The sound hole configurations - upper bout and on the bass-side - are unique and the one I played sounded good. Electronics are decent.
If you're looking for a traditional classical under $1k I would recommend 'Alhambra" guitars - they are produced in Spain and private-label build all the student models for Ramirez. They offer their own name-brand models for less. Upper end Cordoba's a decent too.
Cedar tops are mostly preferred unless you want a flamenco-style guitar.
Hey, if you like the BC ignore everything I just said and grab it! There really are no rules- if you like it - get it. Good luck.
