i've been thinking i'd like a beater to carry around to the beach and places there may be kids or people who are buzzed. a guitar to carry anywhere without worrying. since i've been interested in a grand concert or grand auditorium, and a cutaway, i think i found the deal to end all deals - the Rogue Grand Concert Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar. yes, it even has a pre-amp AND comes with a free gig bag

do i expect it to sound great? not really. i do expect it to play okay - i had a rogue beater bass that was actually pretty nice. and if there's an issue with it, i've always had excellent luck with musicians friend customer service. worst case scenario, i return it. but a lot of people felt it was okay, so i'll be interested to try it out.
