    Rules were meant to be broken.

    Besides this is a guitar and not a ukulele so none of that stuff applies.

    As I said if Willie Nelson can strum a nylon string guitar with a pick then so can I.............just not as well as him

    That is wonderful, congratulations. I have heard really good things about Kremona guitars and their ukuleles as well. I am glad to hear you are enjoying so much you sold your full size guitar. Unfortunately up here in Canada there are no Kermona or dealers for them

    This thread has given me a bad case of GAS!

    I'm torn between the Cordoba & the Kremona 3/4 size.

    @ DownUpDave -- please tell me the depth of the lower bout at the end pin.

    @ dcuttler -- same request.

    Haha, the GAS and UAS never stop.

    The depth of the Cadete at lower bout is 3-1/2"

    10Q Dave! I wanted this stat for comparison with Cordoba's C2 Parlor size, nylon string guitar. FYI, the Parlor's "key" numerical stats are:

    Body Depth Lower Bout:3 3/4"
    Scale Length: 24 3/4"
    Nut Width: 2"

    For me, the 2" (50MM) nut is a deal killer, versus the Cordy's 1.89" (48MM). Yep, for some items, size DOES matter.

    I don't use anything under a .73 on my ukes and go up to over 1MM if using one for bluegrass on a uke or guitar. Never have broken a string or damaged a uke yet and I pick pretty aggressively. I've been pickin' a long time though, I trust those just starting to pick use a thinner one. Really tough to double pick with a thin one.

    Nice buy Dave, Congrats..

    Hey Patrick I am a fan of medium to thick picks as well. Usually from .73 to 1.3, the .88mm Dunlop Ultex is my go to pick for most uses. Thanks for the congrats on the Cadete. It is a fun guitar and I am deep down the rabbit hole of string experimentation........you know me can't leave well enough alone.

    Downupdave came over with this guitar today. My oh My....it sounds very nice. The bass that comes out of this guitar is pretty impressive. You just can't beat that fuller size body. I asked Dave to put me on his wait list. I will buy it off him when he gets bored with it. Here is a photo of Dave. Don't you agree this is just the right size for him?

    Sorry for the side way photo. I really don't know what happened. If I use a different method of attaching it, he will show up huge on your screen. I don't want to ruin his image on UU so I will let you use your imagination or tilt your head .
