Was at a Christmas party for our weekly jam group, and one of the regulars showed up with one of these. He has had it for a while, but generally takes a beater Seagull to the jams, as quarters are tight.
RobertW,CTGull, wow, didn't know they were rare. I guess I thought they were everywhere cuz most of the shops around me usually have them.
The first time I tried the Performers was in 2009 actually. No one ever told me (you know, the sales people etc) they were new so I had just assumed that they'd been around for years and that I had not just stumbled upon something new. lol.
The bummer about the Performer series is that they look great, but I've always found they leave me wanting big time as far as sound goes. Some too bright, some too boxy sounding or muffled. I just could never find one that sounded nice.
Godin should really put out a GA sized guitar in most of their series already. Nobody's gonna say they're copying Taylor cuz a lot of other brands have already come out with GA sizes now. That body size seems to sell like hot cakes.
They seem to want to appeal to the younger crowd, well, the younger crowd seems to love that GA body size. It's only slightly smaller than the MJ so I think Godin could make the change easily.
Ah well. Anyways.....I'll stop rambling now. Coffee hasn't kicked in yet. Who knows where my brain could veer off to.
===================================== One Alvarez in the hand is worth two Taylors and a Martin in the guitar store!
