First guitar, laminate top or go straight for a solid top?
Another concern would be that I'll be carrying the guitar outside in the Canadian winter if I'm going to lessons. No car, have to rely on buses. Would this warp and crack the wood?
He also showed me a Denver guitar, don't recall the model but I think it was around $160, already comes with a bag. I can't find much info about this brand - what's your opinion on it?
