Ibanez GA35TCE Nylon string

Anyone had some first hand experience with one of these?

I'm mainly interested as the body seems to be very similar to my EP10 Euphoria (made in China) and I really like that guitar as you tend to think you are playing an electric unless your try large bends with the heavier string gauge.

I should note I also have an EP7 (made in Korea) that I keep around for different tuning but that seems to be poorer quality with sharp fret edges.

The EP10 doesn't suffer from the same problems as the fret work seems good but obviously this classical guitar is a lot cheaper so I'm not sure what to expect.

Re: Ibanez GA35TCE Nylon string

I've had one for about five or six years now. It doesn't get played a great deal these days as I bought it for teaching, and I no longer teach.

For the money it's a well put together guitar. I prefer the sound of classical guitars over steel string, but the necks are too uncomfortable for me due to my carpal tunnel syndrome. The longer scale length and the relatively slim neck make it a lot of fun to play. The fret work on mine was pretty reasonable, no sharp ends or anything. Sounds pretty nice too. I say go and try one, and see if you like it.

Thanks that does sound quite promising - will have to see if there is anywhere within reasonable travelling distance prepared to stock one, they never seem to stock any of the guitars I'm interested in.....

Re: Ibanez GA35TCE Nylon string

Many Thanks for recommending I go ahead - I got one of these yesterday and I'm shocked just how good it is for the price - it even sounds just fine plugged in which I didn't expect with the Ibanez own brand electronics.

Really love the thin body and comfortable neck as it makes those tricky stretches actually possible now.
