Hi, These are two great discontinued models. I play a mix of flatpicking (light touch) and some fingerstyle. I am not thrilled that these instruments both have the narrow nut. What are your experiences finger picking on them? Not enough physical room? I assume the 76 has a little more flatpicking headroom because of the spruce top.

I'm a big fan of the OM body size and that's pretty much all I play anymore, (TAN77, cedar over koa) is my working guitar, An EF75 is my couch potato.

I'm also a very big fan of cedar and the TAN45C is a real sweety. My opinion would be the 45 may suit you better if you are a light touch player, not because of headroom issues as I never really encountered any with cedar tops, but because the tone would be richer with a light touch. The extra body depth will be evident as well tonally.

Best wishes for your choices.

Hay Mark Twang, if you come across someone who wants a 75, let me know, I find I now have 3.
