Question on FG830

Unread post by rdec873 »

Hi, I have a Taylor 214ce but am looking for a guitar that I can take camping with me and sit around a campfire. I love strumming songs but also really enjoy flat picking some basic bluegrass. For those that have the FG830, how is the neck for flat picking. I haven’t had a chance to play one yet with stores all closed near me. From what I hear, the tone is amazing for a guitar in that price. I’m just curious about the neck. Thanks.

Don't overlook the all laminate f335 or f325d. Both well under $200 or under $250 with hardshell case. Amazing sound......I call mine the poor man's carbon fiber. Check out tony polocastro's (sp?) Youtube video on the f325d.
