Hey Man, $400 to $500 will buy you a pretty nice guitar. Just find one you like and play it...

if you're getting a seagull, don't get the entourage - get the seagull s6. sounds wonderful, nice semi gloss finish. you can choose the wider neck that's great for fingerpicking or playing if you like to slouch, or get the s6 slim if you prefer a slender neck.

are you in the u.s.? if so, here's some all solid guitars i definitely like at maury's. you didn't mention what size you prefer, so here goes. these are all solid sitka spruce over solid mahogany, with a gloss finish and full rich sound, btw. a very martin-y sound.

1 11/16" nut, so slender neck.

12 frets to the body, 1 3/4" nut that's perfect for finger picking and strumming. 12 frets like this tend to have a warmer sound and are easier to play for some people, but have easy reach to less frets. i love 'em.

14 frets to the body, 1 11/16" slender neck.

Blueridge, Epiphone mastercraft, Recording King but it may have issues.



He means Epiphone Masterbilt. I have 2 and love them! All solid woods and very easy on both the ears and the eyes. The DR-500M is only $449 brand new (even less used) and mine sounds great!

i don't care for the masterbilts as much as the seagulls, but they're not bad at all.

Here's the deal... Based on buying a $500 guitar, buy a guitar that will completely embarrass you for say, $99.00 (US$) and play it for about 1 year. I suggest Esteban or something from Wal-Mart. Put the other $400 in an interest bearing account, while again saving another $99 during the year to replace what you've spent.
At the end of one year, while playing a guitar that people laugh at you with, you've learned humility, composure, how to play a shitty guitar, how to plan for your future, AND how to cope with all the stupid questions about why you play "that thing".
At the end of one year, the crappy guitar will implode onto itself, so just throw it away. Now you're ready to play a much better ax, have more than $500 to spend, and you won’t care what the "cork sniffers" here think about what you play...

Being Guitar Pursuer's real-life friend, where we both live in Melbourne, Australia, but what I wanted to know is, he normally plays on a $100 Classical Guitar- which he is used to finger picking/tabbing (We're both still new to the guitar). Would changing from Classical to Acoustic affect his play style? I'm normally a strummer, so I bought an acoustic to satisfy my needs, but if he transfers from classical to acoustic, won't that, perhaps, screw up his finger picking?

i play classical on my steel strings all the time. if he's used to a classical, i'd suggest a wider neck - maybe a used seagull original s6.
