hey guys! im planning on buying my first acoustic guitar in 10 years!


the problem is i do not have much money at all.


$150-200 is my limit, and i do not mind getting used guitars.


here is the catch: it needs to be acoustic-electric.


what do you guys reccomend? thanks!

A Takamine Dreadnought style!

They sound like they are three times as expensive and the quality is decent. With Takamine you get the best money/sound ratio with Yamaha the best money/quality ratio

Look a the Godin guitar's.. It is a canadian brand so I don't know if you can find them aroune the globe but they are great guitar.

When I talk about Godin it is also all there brand like Seagull, Norman, Art&Lutherie adn Simon&Patrick.

Excelent guitar for the price.

I've got one for you Marc.. These guitars are custom built for a luthier here in my area. This is the Jezebel model and in absolute mint condition. I'll let it go for $125 and you pay the shipping. Let me know if your interested. Don't be fooled by the shallow bowl, it has a lot of resonance!

Zakk is right, get a Takamine smile.gif

It is a bargain.

US is so cheap. It is because of import taxes which make buying in the US so expensive for us here otherwise I would buy all my gear (electric/acoustic )there

o yeah it is a great guitar btw
