i have selected some Acoustics from GAK.co.uk
Please give me your honest thoughts, if you think they are all terrible say so.
i'm not looking for a brilliant acoustic guitar, i'm looking for one i can play and actually sound alright.

here are the four;

1) Dean Tradition AK48 Acoustic with case

Sound wise, either the dean or the jack daniels because I think they have better sounding wood for my specific taste. But the black color the jack daniels has is not the nicest.

Edit: Maybe see if you can get an Art&Lutherie at Art&Lutherie I have the Cedar Antique burst Dreadnaught, make sure you get a Dreadnaught

i must admit they are beautiful guitars, but they don't expand on any prices there

Yamaha guitars sound good.


it does, also the cheapest

they're all laminate tops, and laminate does not vibrate as well as solid wood. that means less sound and less quality sound.

there are a few cheap guitars but decent guitars out there with solid tops. the yamaha fg700s is only $200, and is a bit of a step up, although if you can go to $300 you could get the yamaha fg730s or the seagull entourage s6 - both definite steps up in sound quality, and as solid tops age, your guitar will sound a bit better.

I would advise you to stay away from the Deans. They look "nice", but are made horribly. I think the most well built guitar in your list is the Yamaha. They make quite good low-end guitars.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

The Yamaha is probably the best of the list but inly good if your budget is that tight. Consider a Cort Earth 70 with Solid Spruce top (not laminate) Mahogany back, sides and neck. It will serve you much better in the long run.

stay away from Fender... I'd say get the Dean... (based off personal experience)

I have a fender and a friend of mine has the dean and i must say the dean sounds much better than my fender. Not to mention, the Dean is also much easier to play. ... so get the Dean!

No, no, no, and no. Spend a little more and get the Takamine G220S or G330S. Solid tops and Takamine quality for a fair price (I'm awful with exchange rates but they're pretty low on the Euro scale)

i prefer the yamaha 700 series to the taks myself but a lot of people like the taks, too. best thing to do is try them yourself. if you have to get them from that store, i'd suggest one of these:

http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/yamaha-fg730s/67244 this one is best sounding of the bunch to me

My daughter has the F310 and, honestly, it's a nice-sounding stable guitar.
I have a Yamaha myself (FG-412L) and I love it to bits.
First thing I'd recommend, if you do go the Yamaha route, is replacing the bridge saddle with a compensated saddle (plastic one should run just a buck or two, bone'd be maybe a dollar more).

Another vote for Yamaha. My old F-345 still sounds and plays far better than it should for a guitar of it's price range. As someone else mentioned the 700 series I've fondled at the store sound very nice.
Yamaha FG-345
Seagull S6
Epi Les Paul
