Looks like a very good guitar for that price.
$US 800 on Amazon.
and £299 here?

But how decent it is to learn on depends on how well it has lasted and how well it is set up.

I wouldn't make too much of the price you got at Amazon. It's from a dealer, and not Amazon itself. An educated guess brings me to the conclusion, that only factoring in the exchange rate, it's likely worth about $350.00 US. Considering the guitar is made by Samick, is very likely laminated B &S, and has a nato, (not mahogany) neck, extra $450.00 in the offer from "Monfrey Music", is a "stupidity tax", plain and simple. In fact, they have Big brass balls trying to charge 5 bucks shipping on top of that price.

I don't know much about them, but I see them fairly ofter here in Oz. They seem to have a solid reputation.
Those guitars are made by Samick. So basically, this is Samick's answer to Cort selling "Cort" guitars. http://gregbennettguitars.com/guitars/acoustic/beaumont-series/d-7/

As you know, I love talking about my Epiphone EJ-200-SCE's as much or more than you do proselytizing Taylor bolt on necks. That said, they're made by Samick, and IMHO, Samick gives a great "bang for the buck".

Actually I've just seen a Cort guitar for sale for $150 which I wish was selling when I  Brought mine. Oh well at least I've got one to start learning on and I can always upgrade later on.  Thanks gents.

If you like the way it plays and sounds then that's all that counts. And don't worry about "upgrading" - my most-played guitar is a very cheap and cheerful all-laminate thing that cost (back when it was new) around £100 (although I scored it used for £35). Works for me.

I've played a couple and they seemed nice.  The ones I played were well built and sounded good.  If it has been well maintained it is definitely a good choice to learn on.
Not taking any online orders.
