Here are some questions to help decide what style to lean toward.
- Do you play now? Just starting or ready to take a bigger step?
- What style of playing is your main desire? Clawhammer or 3 finger?
- What “sound” do you like inside of that playing style?
- Is this an instrument that you expect to stay in your family? If not, you may want to consider more traditional inlays than personal ones.
- And of course, what is your budget?
