Hey all. I dont normally come around the acoustic forum but from what I understand there are some great people here.

Anyway, I'm in the market for a new acoustic. I've come across an Alvarez RD9VP at a nearby pawn shop for $150. My best guess is that it's a lower-end model because of the price.

Can anybody speak on the quality of lower-end Alvarez guitars? Keep in mind Im not looking for an extremely high quality instrument here, just something that will hold up well so I don't have to play my other acoustic, a 70's Sigma that was my father's. It has too much sentmental value to be an everday player.
