Acoustics

I know nothing about acoustics and I've never owned one but I'm starting to get into them. Anyone recommend me a descent one for around $400-$500? I'd like one where the body is more rounded out and not big and bulky. I'd also like it to have a cutaway.

Something LOOKING like this:

I'm not a fan of Martins...Chicken Picking Guitars

Try to find a cheap or used Taylor...to me, Taylors are the best sounding commercial acoustic guitars (which means im not including some private stock guitar for 40,000 dollars made it some guys basement)

oh, and dont underestimate Takamines...great guitars for a fairly cheap price

I have an ovation acoustic and it kicks ass. It's a gray ovation tangent series 7357.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to go to G-center and look at some stuff. Just that I don't know where to begin, so I guess I'll just start looking in the price range.

Maybe a Martin. Or an Ibanez elec acoustic, but I'm not sure what you are looking for (traditional or electric acoustic).

i had an ovation with an engleman spruce top (only 1000 made i believe) I traded it to my guitar teacher who owns a music store for a brand new Taylor 914 CE, i made about 1000 dollars on the trade

anyway, it was the only ovation i've ever played that sounded good, so im not really a huge fan of ovation, i dont like the rounded, plastic backs

I'd rather prefer a traditional acoustic. Not acoustic/electric.

Damn, I want an 12 string pretty bad too. But they don't sell any around here, and the ones I see one the net could get me a decent tube amp price wise

An excellent 12 Stringer is made by Eko, "Ranger" I think it was called. You can get them pretty cheap nowadays, for aroun £100.

The back of an acoustic guitar doesn't have much impact upon the tone, i did a design project for my Design Tech A-Level, and there have been guitars that have the back built from paper mache to prove it :P Its all about the wood used for the front... and the bridge
