Hey UG, haven't stopped by in a while, but I am looking to purchase a 12 string acoustic OR acoustic-electric.

My price range is around $300-$500, so I should be getting a fairly decent guitar.


My question to you is which is the best sounding for the price?

I am leaning towards Alvarez or Ovation.

I am open to other brands, I just hope they are on MF or some other big internet retailer so I can get Free shipping


thanks

Never played an Alvarez, but 12 string ovations are rather nice. Great quality guitars.

Never played the Alvarez, but I have played and tested out that Ovation. I was going to buy that one, but the sound from it was so cheap. I played a few and all of them just sounded bad. I then tried the next level up 12 string Ovation (about $700) and the difference was amazing.

If you are going as high as $500, you might as well save for however long it takes and put another $200 in and get a better guitar. My friend just bought the Ovation Balladeer LX 12-string and it is an amazing guitar. So easy to play and a fantastic sound. Everyone who plays it loves it.
