My good folk of gmc.
I have never owned and acoustic and I have like 300-500 euros lying around, which is like 350-580 usd?
Do you guys know any cool like good stuff for the price type of deal?

I really dig the nylon sound and same with steel? So i am open for any suggestions.

Based on my experience, I recommend you to go to a music store and try all acoustic guitars that go from 300 to 500 and choose the one that sounds and feels better. I've tried lots of acoustic guitars at Guitar Center and even the same model sounds and feels different.

You'll find good Fender, Yamaha and Martin guitars in that price range, but you need to try them first.

It really is limited by budget, so once you get the chance, it's off to the music store smile.gif Trust your ears and your hands. Just ask for guitars in your price range and try them all to see which one you like.

It will be worth the wait, your budget is enough to buy a nice sounding guitar but picking the guitar yourself will make a huge difference. Steel string acoustic will likely be preferable as it serves more genre types.

When you go to the store try limiting your options no more than 6-7 guitars before even playing cause more than that can be confusing, so a more narrow price-limit for yourself will be a better starting point. Even some of the lowest price guitars comes with a line-out preamp. It's there for stage use but when needed nice to have for home-recording. Decide if you needed it or not, if you have a condenser mic. (which is preferable for a better sound) then likely you won't needed it.

I helped many friends buy guitars and my style is making the store guys play the same thing on selected guitars. Thats where I pick the better sounding options, then play myself to check comfort or if any problems exist.

My only tip for sound is keep in-mind the louder guitar isn't always the best sounding. From there preferences get personal but starting with a dreadnought body guitar may be preferable, as a generalization they are often more balanced sounding.

Sounds like a plan!
Thnaks for the advices guys. Ill wait and might even get some extra bucks to add.

Then will go for a trip to the store. Wish i had local ones with decent gear on display, sincei usually need to go to the big City (1 hour drive) to check gear in person

That's the way to go for sure smile.gif It's very tough to buy a guitar without actually playing it. Sometimes you get lucky, but it's always best to put your hands on it.
