About 2 years ago, i used to play acoustic guitar, and then i got an electric guitar. I played those two guitars for a good while until my brother started expressing interest in learning how to play guitar. So I passed him the acoustic guitar, and that has now become his guitar. I'd love to be able to play that guitar, but since he plays left handed, and i play right handed, i cant really play that guitar anymore. So I would like to get a new acoustic. In this new acoustic, I would like a pickup so i could plug it into my amp if need be, and i would be willing to spend in the 600-800$ range. Im in Canada, so its fine if in USD. Oh, and if you need to know, I play some pink floyd, led zeppelin, etc. I'd greatly appreciate any reccomendations on which guitars I should look into.

Thanks!

buddy your looking for a Martin. can't beat the sound of an acoustic martin.


Yep. Might have to spend some time shopping to find one at that price, it can be done, but at least in my area solid top Martins are tough to come by for that. Doable, but rare...

Check the brand battle. eighty posts and Martin is in the lead.

Actually, in this price range, you'll only get the low-end, rip off (IMO) Martins.

I'd look at Takamine, Seagull, Breedlove, Alvarez, and Epiphone in your price range. You should be able to get an all-solid wood A/E for this price from Alvarez, Epiphone, and maybe Takamine.

TAYLOR!!!!!!!! try out some taylor's, bro!

I think the 110ce is close to your price range

the 210ce is ideal though, get a 2007 or 2008

also check out breedlove!

other good brands (for cheaper guitars) are Takamine, Alvarez, and seagull

the taylor's arent solid wood, but i think they are worth it.. it's all a matter of opinion rally..

go to guitar center and find something you think sounds good!

This!

I'd avoid Taylors in this range too, seeing as they are fairly overpriced for what you are getting.
