What to buy??

Looking to get a quality acoustic guitar for under 200. I've heard that the Yamaha 700s is a great entry level acoustic but I'm a big fan of Washburn's. Any suggestions?

buy the fg700s and write washburn on the headstock....you'll be much happier with the sound than just getting a washburn.

i would go for the yamaha 700 as it's a great deal, solid top, yada yada. i dislike the "washburn sound", but if you like it, maybe this all lam model would work for you http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guit...acoustic-guitar

you could also raise your price a few bucks and get a solid top washburn

or wait for the next guitar center holiday sale and get it for a few bucks less.

Baby steps dude, baby steps.

(Because by then, you might want a Taylor instead).
