I think it's one of the never taylor models, dont know the name of it. It's red. A friend of mine thought it was a very bad guitar for the money

Taylor T5. It's a half acoustic half electric guitar. It doesn't quite imitate the tone of an acoustic, but it's a pretty good attempt at getting both.
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

ahh... too much for me. I've never had an acoustic before and I'm looking at getting one that looks good and I like white guitars. I'm leaning towards the Ovation Idea

Before you buy an Ovation or Stratacoustic or the T5 Taylor have a search in UG to see the general concensis r.e. plastic back guitars
Oh here is a T5 Utube link

I have heard that most people don't like plastic backed guitars because they don't like the unplugged sound. That's fine. I don't plan on playing without an amp.

Yeah. I'd love to have that, but for my initial acoustic, I can't justify the price tag. Even the 600 for the ovation idea is pushing it.

I think that guy could make a cheap $100 guitar sound good eh?

The only thing I'd say, if it is for your original guitar , quite honestly the better guitar you buy now you will thank yourself for later.

Doyle Dykes is quite a beast on guitar. Anyway... for $600, you can get quite a nice guitar. My personal suggestion would be the Epiphone Masterbilt series. Seriously good guitars for around $500. All solid wood construction. You can't get much better.
