    Hi,

    I play steel string acoustic and electric guitar. I've been thinking about picking up a cheap Classical guitar off of craigslist just for fun. They range from$50 to $5000... obviously I'm leaning toward the $50 option.

    Is there anything I should be looking for in a Classical? I'm pretty good with guitar appraisals, setup, condition, etc. But all I know about a Classical guitar is nylon strings, wider neck and you play it on your left leg... that's it.

    Thanks.

    You should give La Patrie guitars a look. Incredible value for the money. The only thing I didn't like about the ones I've played is that they aren't as balanced across the strings as I like.

    There is a La Patrie in Chicago CL for $300, with pickup... normally $800. Says there are a few minor cracks on the top.
