Thanks Dreadnought! I think this sticky should cut down like 40% of the posts in this forum

Excellent classical guitar for the price. I've just recently got one, it's my first and I love it.

$279.99 @ Musician's Friend!

Yeah I'm like you to. I bought a Taylor only a month ago, and though I love it to bits I've got acoustic collecting fever... I want more guitars haha. There's so many nice little gems at my local music store that i'd love to own, and they are cheap compared to the Taylor. I suppose once I get some cashflow i'd start considering them.

I have the Seagull S6, I just got a 200 dollar pickup put in it. It was my dads and its prolly 5 or 6 years old but I thought it was much more than 360 dollars. It's got it's sure of nicks and everything but wow it still plays awesome. If you were going to spend 300 dollars on a guitar I'd save up for a seagull s6

I recently picked up one of the Peavy Briarwood Dreadnaught copies. Solid Sitka top, Mahogany back and sides, rosewood fingerboard, sealed tuners that actually hold tune, and a pretty nice job of copying the D28. Paid $38 at a pawnshop. Haven't tried out the electonics yet but no pre-amp installed. Straight undersaddle piezzo.
It ain't no Martin or Taylor but she sounds very rich.

I just ordered a Yamaha FG730S. I've never played it but I don't think it's a problem. I mean I just played a 300? Ibanez and a 700? Takamine in the store and they sounded pretty much the same.

For beginners I would suggest this

http://www.ibanez.com/guitars/guitar.asp?model=IJP2S

It is what I started with and it sounds better than the guitars that my friends spent 350 or more on.

I bought a red "Spruce GT" Art & Lutherie ( $329.99 ) in recent months and I love it, being my first guitar. Its sound is awesome, compared to other "starter" guitars I tried out.

Today, while giving it a wipe-down with a soft cloth, I discovered a small scratch in the front. I will not attempt to buff it out considering its fine, glossy finish. To me, it gives a guitar character - not that it can really be noticed, but in my opinion, every scratch tells a story. Don't ask me how this scratch got there, but I guess I could simply "make up" an extraordinary excuse...

depends wut kinda cloth ur using. I only use microfiber clothes cuz they're guarenteed not to scratch ur surface. Other cloths.. like terry cloth or even tshirts aren't that fine and will scratch ur guitar

He used the same guitar for everything. It was a Martin, 50's acoustic-electric. This was probably answered earlier in the thread but I didn't notice it
