Hello,

I'm looking for a parlor-sized guitar mostly for fingerpicking and some blues jamming...
My budget is <$700.

I tried the Takamine G406S and the Seagull Coastline Cedar Grand but I would like to have a few other recommandations.

Thanks for any help

Thanks what did you get finally ?

My dream would be getting a Takamine EF407 or a Larivee Parlor P-05 but it's way too expensive

Sadly I ended up getting a Martin 000x1 because Takamine G406s was not in stock when i came with the money. ):
I'd recommend the AMI, A&L and Seagull both has the same parent company Godin, so you can expect alot from them. Same with Simon and Patrick. I did get to try the Washburn parlor but the tone is either you love or you hate it. I loved it, just the price they were selling it for in the store and the price online was quite diffrent so i couldn't afford it.

however, imo, takamine g406s and washburn looks the most prettiest. (:

Fingerpicking? Definitely go with the Cedar top Seagull. Cedar sounds soft with lots of rich overtones and harmonics. It is also a very responsive wood compared to Spruce top guitars.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ
