Look on youtube.com- search "rediculously hard classical **** that no one in their right mind would try" and you'll find some 5 year old asian kids playing it

You will not get what you are looking for without spending 2k for it. Sorry. The thing is, to make a good d'angelico, or a good benedetto knock off, you use as much material as you would use for 4 regular acoustic guitars. So look at your average taylor or martin (1 or 2 grand) and think about the fact that the cost of making it is actually 4 times as much and then it seems like you are getting a pretty good deal.

I could make you one for a little over 1,000 GBP but that is still about $2,000. The long and short of it is that archtops cost a lot of money to make and the profit margin is very small. Therefor, even off brands cost thousands.

If you are willing to give up on the idea of a true acoustic then there are a lot of very nice simi hollowbody and hollowbody electrics that sound great when plugged in and are not horrible when unplugged.
