    I've read about his guitars for at least 10 years on the AGForum, and my opinion is that you are better off finding a local luthier and telling him what you want for action and string spread at both the nut and saddle. The guitars he marketed as Zagers, were all PAC rim models that he "Zagerized." I have a luthier friend who imports PAC rim guitars with his name on the headstock, then sets them up to his specs, probably the same as Zager without the 2525 name recognition. As to Zagerizing other guitars, YMMV, but I still think you're better off using a local luthier that you have established a relationship with. JMHO.

    I'd consider any guitar if I had it in hand and could test it out. I wouldn't buy a modified guitar over the internet (maybe if the price was so low you can't lose).

    Pitt, why did you change your hand position after all those years? Don't buy into things like "this is the right way" being preached by some teachers. Yes, for classical guitar you generally want your thumb right in the back of the neck. Also, not all anatomy is the same. For example, my lady has VERY stiff fingers. Meanwhile, my thumbs are double-jointed and bend easily. So, you should stick with the method that wasn't causing pain. If you have pain, you should stop until it's long gone.

    I think Mick Fleetwood'd be inclined to agree.
