It's impossible to get a guitar that "sounds like _______" because there are too many variables like strings, woods, bracing patterns, etc. However, there are a lot of great guitars for $400.

What kind of features do you want with your guitar? (e.g. cutaway, electronics, woods?)
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

what do you recommend?
i tried the lighter string and it sounds better but then my acoustic is broken...

and i notices you have epiphone special 2, is it good electric guitar pack.

If you don't use electronics often then I wouldn't bother buying one with it. You can get more guitar for the money. Electronics usually suck out like $75 from the price at this range.

When you buy electronics, cutaways go with it. So... no electronics = no cutaway 99% of the time.

This thread has some really good recommendations. Personally, the ones I would note the most are the Seagulls.

As for the epi special II, it's alright for an entry level guitar. It's not the greatest, but it gets the job done.
