I am seriously thinking of buying one of the new Blues and Jazz series of guitars when they come out and I am not at all familiar with that particular brand of acoustic, so I was wondering what peoples general opinion is of the quality. I am looking specifically at the Blues 51, or maybe the Delta00 depending on the price.

I've always been cool about them, mostly because I associate them with Yairi and epoxied neck joints, but it amounts to little more than personal prejudice. Have a look at Recording King if you want that style of guitar. Something like this:

EDIT. Eastman have a very good reputation, something like this would do it for me (and I have the real deal from 1932):

I rate them very highly across the board. I've played $200, $1200 and $2200 Alvarez guitars and found them all to be very competitive with other guitars in the same price range.

Alvarez are a consistently good brand, and well worth the money.

I play a since discontinued MC90 as my classical.
But we little know until tried how much of the uncontrollable there is in us, urging across glaciers and torrents, and up dangerous heights, let the judgment forbid as it may.
