Ok im buying my first acoustic and ive narrowed it down to 2 models:


Epiphone Performer SE

Tanglewood TRSF CE

http://www.guitar.co.uk/guitars/electro-acoustic/2799-tanglewood_trsf_ce_electro_acoustic_guitar?page=4


Both fit my requirements perfectly: folk body, solid top, electro-acoustic, cut-away, cost around £300... So which one should i go for? If anyone can suggest a better alternative that fits the above requirements, then by all means show me, but im very much set on the 2 ive mentioned

Cheers guys, im not able to try out any guitars (not the kind i want anyway) so i needed an opinion - if the Tanglewood sounds the best, thats what im going for. I was kind of hoping people would lean that way anyway, the massive headstock on the Epi looks stupid IMO...

Thanks again

Well they call it a Super Folk, but it isn't big, the lower bout is 376mm which is just under 15 inches across. Compare that to a Jumbo which is over 17 inches at the lower bout.
