Yes another one, besides im only borrowing my cousins UG account(I'm a Lazy SOB)
Anyway I just want opinions you guys are helpful right? haha
Epiphone EJ-200 CE http://www.guitarcenter.com/Epiphone-EJ-200CE-Acoustic-Electric-Guitar-518652-i1150092.gc#specifications
Or
Epiphone Performer ME http://www.guitarcenter.com/Epiphone-Performer-ME-Venetian-Jumbo-Acoustic-Guitar-513299-i1395971.gc
Yeah I know that why only epiphone why not this and that I just like it i've looked a others too and they only have a few differences so I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with these guitars just pro's and cons individually you dont have to own both. I am looking small cause I want a nice acou-elec that if it breaks wont get me screaming bloody murder. A guitar to pass around but is good for the price
and if you must suggest other will be fine by me no haters please.
Thanks in advance

Well, the Epiphone EJ-200 CE has a solid spruce top, which is good because the sound will sound even better with time. Please correct me if im wrong, but the Epiphone Performer ME to my knowledge is all laminate, which means that it will sound the same its entire life. The Epiphone EJ-200 is your best bet out of these two, but i am sure that there are better yamaha acoustic electrics out there in the same price range, like this one.

if you dont need electronics and a cutaway, i am sure that there is an even better guitar out there with better quality material and construction.

Thanks man ill keep those in mind but i like having a cutaway for some reason and i like having electronics cause you never know when youll need a good PA'd sound ive had a bad experience with just mic'ing my guitar but i'll look into the yamaha and im also partial to the Jumbo/Concert/Auditorium shapes forgot to mention that sorry but yeah i got your point and thanks a lot man

the guitar he listed IS acoustic electric and DOES have a cutaway. nice sounding instrument, too. or there's also the yamaha fgx720sca.

but you're looking for a jumbo or rounder guitar. if so, i've heard good things about this series
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Hohner-Essential-Plus-Mini-Jumbo-Acoustic-Electric-Guitar-583606-i1475608.gc

or maybe you can get one of these on sale, which are pretty darn nice
http://backstage.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/seagull-performer-cutaway-mini-jumbo-flame-maple-high-gloss-qi-acoustic-electric-guitar
or perhaps find a seagull entourage rustic mini jumbo q1 somewhere.

but of the two you list, i'd absolutely go for the ej-200 over the other one, which is indeed all laminate and also not imo a good value. also keep in mind that jumbos are boomier, which can affect things when plugged in or recording.

Well not Jumbo but let say i dont feel comfortable with dreadnought shapes
Well thanks you saved me a lot of time finding out if it was laminate cause i cant find a lot of specific online stuff with this guitar and i am lazy .
well thanks i'll try to see if i can find any of those you guys requested cause there isnt a wide range of choices where I am i only had one wish for the EJ i wish it doesnt so mature i wish it was more liad back =)) but thanks a lot guys you really do help lazy SOB's like me and if anything you should see my NGD post in sometime just aint sure when ill acually go get and buy one i'm kinda finicky :P

One more thing um since i know laminates sound dead this one isnt THAT dead and this thing will receive a *itch in climate changes i've heard that solids might not deal with that well think washington to tropics and i dont mean florida so iwas wondering i want something stronger is the ej still the one to go for under these circumstances

even laminate woods will swell and shift in high humidity, although possibly not as much as solid wood.
