you avoid martin because of the $? that's funny, because martin's least expensive all solid guitar is much lower in price than taylor's. martin has guitars in just about every price range.

oh, yes - the masterbilts are definitely better, although i'd say that the EJ200 is pretty good. the masterbilts, however, are all solid, so they're resonant. but do try the guild GADs, too. ...

Spaz91 has a good point - the hofners (and not just the lowest end ones) are flimsy. the epiphone, which weighs about 1 1/2 ponds more, is definitely more robust.

i wouldn't hesitate to recommend the sterling SUB ray5 - they're really nice basses with great tone. their build quality, tone and neck are really super, a step above the other two imo.
