I'm happy with it. I've never had problems with it. The sound is pretty good and it plays well. I've never thought of upgrading it, to be honest. But then again I've never needed a higher quality acoustic.

I got a $530 Ovation for $180 because of a small crack in the finish. However, I've seen some decent Washburns locally for >$200.

I got pretty lucky. I waited for about 5 months looking for an acoustic and that suddenly came up. Go to the respective forums for finding tips on buying guitars.

besides how a guitar feels in your hands.. you may want to consider, do you need a pickup in your acoustic so that you can plug it in to an amp... are you after a cutaway body, if not a full body will generally give you a fuller sound.

try out a few techniques to see if it fits your needs.. playing chords, strumming, finger picking, picking.

Pick out a higher end guitar first to see what a good guitar should sound like then try and find one within your price range!

mm thats a bit of a situation then. i would suggest going for guitar lessons and asking the guitar teacher what you should buy. Lessons are def worth the money when you are starting out

I have an epiphone dr-100 and its an alright guitar. It doesn't have the best tuners or sound up on the higher frets, but it has a pretty good sound for just strumming some chords.

Honestly though, yamaha makes some nice guitars around $170 or $180, and I probably would have bought one if I'd had a little more money.

Check them out, and ask somebody in the store for advice.
