I’m looking at purchasing either a 000-15m or 000-rs1 for my wife.
There is a pretty significant price difference between the two (15m is around 1200; rs1 is 750) and I’m having a hard time justifying the price of the 15m.
BUT…the 15m has all solid mohagany (top, back, sides AND neck), is USA made and has NO pickup (which is a plus for my wife, she is sort of old fashioned and doesn’t want anything electronic inside her guitar.
The RS1 is made in mexico? has some kind of recycled laminate hardened neck material and recycled paper mixed with resin for the bridge. something like that.
anyone with experience on either of these guitars. any thoughts about the body shape/size? I think dreadnought is supposed to be preferred for flatpicking right? but she would like something a bit smaller and more comfortable to handle.
thanks for your thoughts banjoben members!
