Hi guys,

I am hoping that you guys can help me by suggesting some good acoustic electric guitars that are around under 400-500 dollars.

Thank You

Yamaha, Seagull and Alvarez are a few brands that make good guitars in your price range. Don't buy sight-unseen. Get your hands on a few and choose the one that sounds and feels the best to you.

I'd probably stick between Alvarez, Takamine, Seagull, and Breedlove in this price range. I don't really particularly care for the Yamaha acoustic-electrics or the Washburns.

I also agree with Jimtaka.

But if you're willing to spend an extra $50, the Ibanez AEF37E is incredible.

Look around for the Epiphone Masterbuilt series, I think there are a few that may still fall in your price range. They're a great price for an all-solid guitar.
