    I was just playing some bebop licks on my classical, and I'm wondering why I don't do it more...

    For trad. jazz (i.e. pre-fusion), the nylon strings seem slightly more appropriate tonally...

    Anyone agree with me? Disagree?

    ...And before anyone asks, yes, I have heard Ralph Towner and John McLaughlin...:cool:

    I want a 8-string classic with build in pickups, that would make some sweet horror-jazz.

    If you made it midi-capable it would be capable of some insane sounds...:evil:

    i absolutly love the tone of nylon strings, so smooth, i have my normal no classical alverez strung up with some and it sounds so sweet, and if i ever get stranded in the woods, i can go fishing with the strings
