Hi,

I'm thinking of buying an acoustic/electric guitar around 500$.
But I just don't know what to buy.. (Thinking of Fender Kingman SCE)
Could anyone help me please?
I actually have only one condition, which is that I want to attach a strap


Thanks

I have a Laguna LG4-CEBUB and i love it. The bassist for the band i used to be in got the bass version of it and loves it too. The strap that i use has a regular hole that i attach to the side of the guitar (cable input) and the other side has a string that loops through the headstock... i like it cuz i didn't have to drill into the guitar for it.

I think the Laguna is a nice guitar but I really really don't like the looks of it, I'm sorry

i would buy a yamaha fgx730sc because of yamaha's overall higher quality compared to fender. i've played many of both brands, and while sometimes i find the fenders a tad easier to play "out of the box", the yamahas are very nice and can easily be set up for easier playability.

btw, most quality acoustics (not sure about acoustic electrics because i haven't paid attention to that) don't have 2 strap buttons, but you can always have the other one attached.

Yamahas are actually pretty nice... they were my first option when i was looking for an acoustic/electric but opted for the Laguna instead after comparing them. Also, if you don't like the looks because of the wook type, you can get a different model at around the same price with a traditional look (maple i think).

EDIT: this is what it looks like in real life -

That Yamaha could be a good idea i'll check if I can find a store who has it in Holland

EDIT: for some reason it's 520 euros in Holland, which is 750 dollars. I'd like to spent around 500-550 dollars.

What about the Yamaha LSX26C?

EDIT: wait there are 2 types of FGX730SC's?

I personally love Ovation guitars. I think the round back is amazing but that also turns some people off so you'd have to try it yourself.
