Anyone own/play Ben Woods BWSM2 by O... 

i posted this earlier in the wrong subforum i think. returning to my Flamenco journey after a long 11 yr hiatus. in the past i owned a navarro and conde student grade, both traditional style instruments.

i like a lot of features this offers, i do want an adjustable truss rod irregardless of what i end up with. want to try to keep the cost around $1200 tops, but i can go above that a little.
i like the thinner body, the neck set, the cutaway. i realize this is primarily set up for stage use, but i was wondering if anyone has one for home use and how you like it.

thank you
d

i did search here on the forum but did not get any findings.

here's one more video. i realize Ben is a professional, and there may be some post processing with regards to the videos, but i'm not sure. i think it sounds good, has some good attributes for a student to learn on/with.

thank you

2) traditional builds, non TR, Esteve F6 and F8

You could also consider the camps MC-11. I played the amplified version CE-500 and immediatly fell in love with it. Very lights and very sweet sound. Just a good guitar.

But as a general disclaimer; I am always unsure with these mass produced guitar on how consistance their build is and how one expereince translates to another one.

I like the appearance and features on the other two Ben Woods signature models. I considered buying one, but then decided to go with an all carbon-fiber nylon string guitar because I already have a GK Studio Negra as well as the trusty Culpepper blanca.

Hi darylcrisp,

Did you ever try out this guitar or any of the others mentioned? It is exactly what I am looking for with the narrower neck, the cutaway and electronics
