you live in Singapore?
i love the Yammie LL6's. engelmann spruce top, rosewood back and sides. excellent fingerstyle guitar. tried a few out but settled on a Yammie AC3M. i like the darker sound of the mohagany.
there's an LL6 on Ebay for $399 US with case. cheap enough for what you get.

if it were me, i'd go for the yamaha. the LL6 has a 1 3/4" nut, which i find better for fingerstyle than the big baby's 1 11/16" nut. i also am a huge fan of englemann spruce, which has a little more overtones - i've always liked that for fingerstyle.

I have an LS16, but I did try the LL6 and the LS6. They sound great, are easy to play, and the build quality is hard to match at that price.

thanks for the feedback.the taylor is actually $690 here in sg and the yamaha is $900 slashed to $690.and unless the dealer on ebay is in sg,the shipping cost would cost me about $200 which then i could spend on a new one..ill go try out the guitars this saturday and probably will settle for one.its my first acoustic thus the excitement.(i played about 3 years of classical)

I've never tried one before or remember seeing any around here(Canada). Check some of the review sites. Looks nice though.
