I'm looking for a used acoustic (preferably acoustic electric) from Guitar Center since I have some gift cards. My budget is $300. What is the best guitar from that link I posted? Thanks. Location doesn't matter since I will just ship it from the store.

used is risky for acoustics at GC - they won't refund your shipping even for store to store if the guitar is messed up, and sometimes the older version of a guitar isn't the same (or as good) as the newer versions, and you can't tell from their sucky pics which it is.

besides, some of the guitars on that page aren't a deal at all. one of the best sounding of all the guitars listed there is the seagull original S6 - not the other S6 models, the original S6. there are a couple. here's one

honestly if you're not into seagull, you'd do just as well to order a new yamaha FG730 acoustic or FGX720SC acoustic-electric. both are solid top dreads that sound good.

Seagull is pretty good right? I got an extra $50 in my budget so I can afford something better (like an acoustic electric). Honestly I'd rather have a good used acoustic than a newer, cheaper acoustic. I already own a Yamaha FD01S and I just want an upgrade from Yamaha.

yeah, the seagull S6 is one of the few solid top guitars that can pass for all solid. either the original S6 or the S6 slim if you prefer a slender nut.

if you play 000s, this is a very nice sounding, all solid guitar for $400

it appears that GC doesn't carry the low priced all solid RK dread, the RD-10, but maybe they could order one for you. it's this one
http://www.elderly.com/instruments/acoustic-guitars/flat-top-acoustic-guitars/recording-king-rd-10-dreadnought-classic-series.htm

all solid, used guilds and blueridge are both good guitars, too.

btw, i bet they GC has a valentine's day sale, and seagull is one of the few brands that takes part.

One thing I don't like about the seagulls is that they aren't electro acoustic. Have you heard of Breedlove guitars before? they have a lot of used $350 - $400 electro acoustics. Some I was looking at

Here are two Seagulls I found that are electro acoustic

i'm not partial to those lower priced breedloves - they don't sing for me. their higher priced models, now - some of them are pretty special.

you might want to ask seagull. i've never seen any of their cutaway acoustic electrics locally to try. or you could get an S6 and add electronics if you don't need the cutaway.

The Seagull Q-1 electronics are only 2 brand EQ, bass cut & boost, and treble boost and cut. None of that matters one bit. A little creative knob twisting will net you virtually the same results as the more common 3 band electronics.

As for the cutaway, opinions vary to somewhere between, "it has almost no effect", to mine which is, "meh, maybe the cutaway models are a twitch brighter".

So, if you like the S-6, I'm pretty sure you'd like the S-6 Q-1 model. Just be careful to trade top wood for top wood if you but the electronics. In other words. If you likje the cedar top S-6, then buy the cedar top with the Q-1 electronics.

Won't Musician's Friend accept GC's gift cards? A stupid question perhaps, but they are the same company.

I've got a Breedlove Passport Concert and I absolutely love the thing. Really well balanced, sits right in your lap or on a strap. The tone is clean and not a single part of it gets muddy, boxy or tiny. I generally prefer more "traditional" instruments, but absolutely love the Breedloves. I picked one up at Guitar Center not intending to buy a guitar and left with one. I'd suggest them, but I'd play it safe with used from GC. I got a P-bass years ago with a non working truss rod and recently a 65' Duo-sonic II with a dead switch on it, no refund or discount or anything.

Also, I'd suggest taking a look at your local store for clearance models. A matte version of the Breedlove was on clearance for $399, the glossy one I got was full price at $599. Normally the two sported a $50 price difference.

I might also suggest getting just a straight up acoustic guitar instead of a A/E. Generally the A/E aspect of a guitar tags $100-200 to the price on top of just a straight acoustic, meaning that if you spend the same amount on a A/E as a regular acoustic, you're sacrificing tone/playability/quality.

Brands I'd recommend considering: Breedlove, Blueridge, Seagul, Yamaha, Ibanez, Takamine
Brands I'd recommend staying away from in your price range: Epiphone, Fender, Squier, Mitchell, Sigma (new models, not vintage), Martin, Taylor, Ovation/Applause, Jasmine
Fact: Bears eat beats. Bears beats Battlestar Galactica.
