Well Rob, I think we have all been there & can identify with this experience & your frustration.

How are you getting on with your quest?

I do believe however, that your first instrument may not be your last.

As you develop, gain familiarity with your acquisition, & your new hobby gets a grip, you will eventually find yourself wanting something a little ‘different’.

My instinct would be to go for the Verdi on offer in the Wirrel if it is still available. You have been advised by experienced members that this is a robust instrument, but, only buy it if the sound pleases you. If you don’t fall in love with the sound, you will not pick it up, & your purchase will be in vain. (That’s my personal experience anyway)

Good luck & best wishes Rob, this is not the best time to be on the hunt for anything, let alone an instrument, but on a positive note, it is the best time to start a new hobby now that most of us have a bit more time on our hands.
