I have Garcia Grade 3, 1973, in very fine condition. I got it in 1983 for $50 from my mom's neighbor. At that time I didnt think it sounded very good....I just started playing again and.....the sound is stunning. It just resonates and rings, rich in harmonics, tunes well, I cant pick up my strat. Anyway, Sherry Brenner made these, final assembly in Japan. Now, Sherry Brenner has got a bad rap for questionable practices, but everyone Ive heard of who has a Garcia says they are just amazing...for the price. The Grade 3 new is listed at $2300. Grade 2 is around $2600. And certainly my Grade 3 sounds like a $2300 guitar, no question. It is the best sounding guitar ive ever played. People should know before they bash the 'cheap Japanese imports' that in the late sixties into the '70's, many Japanese guitars where made with impeccable quality and also very fine materials, because the Japanese where trying to capture market share. If you want, id like to trade pictures of mine and the 2a. Oh, here is the link to sherry-brenner...http://www.guitarramagazine.com/catalog/index.asp

Re: garcia grade #2a 1970,classical guitar

I have a Garcia grade 3 that I bought new in 1973 for $175 with hardshell case. It is in excellent condition except for a crack in one of the rollers that the string is wound around. I don't play much anymore and never took lessons, mainly self taught because I could read music. So I can't really comment on how well it sounds or plays. My feelings is that it doesn't sound that well, but then I don't put new strings on it very often. Also doesn't seem to play too well, for me anyway. But if it is worth $2000 now, I'd sure like to get an experienced guitar player to check it out to let me know if it is just me or if I should be tempted to start playing again.
