I am looking for a guitar that can be played with a strong attack without loudness; like the Yamaha silent guitars or the Aria sinsonidos, but at a lower price. Are the Anygig guitars https://www.anygigguitar.com/de/collections/nylon a reasonable alternative? (The steel string versions are not available at the moment, so I would buy a nylon model and use those special Thomastik steel strings). Or is there any other solution?
I asked a luthier if remodeling an old archtop would make sense: removing top and bottom, installing an extension of neck/fingerboard and so on. But in his opinion it would be rather laborious to prevent everything from collapsing.
