Just thought I'd add a bit extra as anecdotal evidence for you to consider. Investing in a middle tier guitar and good set up will probably be a better option. I just feel like with that $2000 budget...

$2000 is a huge step up from a GIO, not that GIOs are bad guitars. Are you sure you want to jump straight from entry level into a high level, expensive guitar? I'm not sure how experienced you are...

Just to add- I found the lowest string rattled badly until I hit the 0.80 gauge. It still has a mild buzz on some frets, but I've done all the adjustment I can to correct it. The buzz is so mild it's...

Can't help you unfortunately, just wanted to say that even if you can't identify it or it's worthless, fantastic find. That's a beautiful guitar and a great thing to remember your grandfather by.

I would just get comfortable playing the A chord (x02220) with three fingers. Usually index, middle and ring fingers using your thumb to mute the low E. That way you can get all strings ringing...

I would suggest you keep working on your stretching. It's not really a very big stretch. In the long run it will help you a fair bit I think, it's a relatively common sort of stretch distance.
