To me, Carvins are the most comfortable guitars to play (the neck is just lovely), and they really have a lot of attitude. Very, very tasty stuff.
Or maybe a Charvel? Jackson? ESP?

Looking for a classical guitar!

Hey guys,

For drop D, 10s will do fine (though I prefer 10-52 for that). Drop C# the lowest string will probably be a little loose. Drop B and it's spaghetti time! I use 12-60 for drop B.
