Heading back to the studio

Looking forward to getting back into the studio this week!

Need a new guitar...Any ideas?

Im looking for a new guitar. When I first began playing, I had some weird, dollar-store cheap-o that a friend gave me. That lasted about two weeks. Couldn't keep that thing in tune through a song and the buzzing just about drove me insane....and the neck was bent. I found a used guitar on eBay in December; a Harmony. It's been a real trouper and I've written all of my songs on it, but damn if the low E string just never sounds quite right, and anything above the 9th or 10th fret is ghastly. I need a 3/4 size because my hands are small. Any ideas from the music community? I got a tip from a guitar expert that the Little Martin was of better construction and overall sound than the Baby Taylor.
