    Well, the chase is all part of the fun.:) If possible, go play some of those on your list, and see what YOU like. I would not dismiss the Washburn M118SW out of hand.

    Re: Arthritis pain relief

    I have also found (<.3% THC) CBD oil and creams to be effective. The oil taken orally is best. Note that it is available in different strengths.
