Looking into a Yamaha LS16.

Anything else in that price range compare? Must have solid back/sides, and be in the OM/concert acoustic ish shape. Looked into the recent Masterbilts, but dislike the V neck.

A couple of suggestions, if you don't mind buying used. You might be able to find Larrivee L or OM shaped guitar in that price range used. That would probably be my suggestion of where to start. The shape you're looking for is kind of tricky in that price range. My other suggestion used is an older Taylor 214 or 314. For the 214, you would need to make sure it was manufactured before they started using laminated woods in it's construction. Both of those are great guitars though.

It's tough for me to find new guitars with that shape that are all solid woods in the price range.

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.
