Hi guys,

I'm from India and am planning to buy an acoustic-electric guitar with a solid top with in $400.00 price range. I have read in many forums about Epiphone AJ220SCE and have also seen their commercial which gives me a feeling that it will be a good option. But I haven't played it yet as I couldn't find it at any of the stores here.

I could try my hands on the Fender CD140SCE which sounds good and feels good as well. The action at the 12th fret was a bit high in few of the ones I played and in some I could hear slight buzzing on couple of the strings (which i think can be fixed).

I am confused now, if I must try epiphone AJ220SCE and then make a decision or go ahead with Fender CD140SCE.

Can any of you help me understand the differences in both these models, which one is more reliable in the long run and what should I go for? Also please let me know if there is any other model which I must consider buying. I mostly play country songs, and a bit of the finger-style stuffs.

Warm regards,
