Grabbed the La Patrie Concert (plain, no cutaway, nor electronics) at the pawn shop last Saturday
and bought it right away as it was near mint with stright top and neck with action perfect for me
with high saddle at bridge. This Red Cedar / Mahogany litterally sings with new Corum HT strings.
I will compare with the Red Cedar / Rosewoods Aria and Ramirez.

I also tried a black Waterloo WL-14 TR and quite like it...
I will get back to the store with my Gibson L-1 1928 BT
to decide if I am gonna put a huge amount of money on that beauty
should the Taylor GS-5 sell.

Add on :
Did alternatively play :
- La Patrie Concert (Red Cedar/Mahogany) and Aria AC-80 (Red Cedar/Rosewood), then,
- La Patrie Concert and Ramirez R-4 (Red Cedar/Rosewood).
The sound differences do not really justify to pay three time the price for these Spanish made guitars.

A local store has a used Taylor 517ce...
Cranked my 510 from DADGAD to "standard" and played it for a moment.
The idea is to bring it to the store on rainy tomorrow and compare... and maybe... ;-)

La Patrie Concert again...

Shipped the Taylor GS-5 (sold) today. After the banjitar and The Loar...
I am now tossing : Waterloo WL-14 TR or used Taylor 517e (trading the 2006 510 ?)
Buying the Waterloo would help my local dealer...

P.S. Received a not from reverb : they will raise fee from 3,5% to 5% Geee !!!

Gibson L-1 1928 Blues Tribute, standard EADGBE tuning...
Should bring it to local music store tomorrow (rainy day = no golf !)
to compare with Waterloo WL-14 TR (1,75" nut width)
I am having some trouble fretting this Gibson's string spacing based on 1,725" nut width.

Davetcan has a beauty Martin DRS1 with a Hard Case For Sale at a great price, the wood was probably better in 2016 also.

Oh I know, I keep debating texting him. But it's a dread and I want a smaller body.
