Greetings fellow Selmerites, Macaferrians, and Manouchouers alike!!!
I have been playing an Altamira M30D for 6-7 years now, and I am saving up for my next guitar. The models I am eyeballing in the $2K range are the Stringphonic Basic and the Dupont Nomade. In the $3K range we have the Stringphonic Advanced and the Dupont MD100 or MDC100.
Would love to hear some opinions on these models vs each other ($2K vs $2K and $3K vs $3K). And also, for $2K vs $3K range, how much more "guitar" am I really getting for that extra $1K.
I have read and seen great things about the Stringponic, so I am leaning towards those. But I know Duponts are legendary and highly sough after for good reason.
I know all guitars sound and play different due to setup, construction, perception, etc. I don't expect a scientific diatribe on the subject. So all things being equal, I am just looking for some practical guidance before I make my decision. Thanks in advance.
