I found this acoustic guitar. It's around $70. It has many small soundholes like an Ovation, but IT IS NOT AN OVATION.

It has 18 frets
blue in color
and rather thin.
The back is something like plastic, and the top is well, wood.
it has 6 steel strings.
NO on board preamp or whatever, full acoustic

I am wondering if I should get it, or is it just stupid.
I just want an acoustic guitar, that's all.

Thanks./

Hey,

It's probaly some cheap rip-off of an Ovation. Leave it the hell alone! It can only disappoint you and mess you around - cr@p tone, poor intonation etc. Rather just get a decent entry-level.

Cheers

i agree with Jaysin...
Get an entry level acoustic. like and ibanez elec-acoustic or something else that is relatively cheap.

Leave it, your description makes it look like shit, especially because of the poor manufacturing (70$)
#5
ovation copy, with no pre amp? that's suicide!!!! shitty tone! ovations are meant to be plugged, unplugged they sound like a 1$ Acoustic.
strat player forever.

Alright thanks a lot buddies.

Any really good and cheap recommendations? I prefer to not go about 120 USD. WIth preamp please, full acoustic.

I am a beginner, so anything will do, but i prefer one with tons of mids.

I would look for used guitars in Pawn shops, on eBay, etc. You want something with a solid top, for a variety of reasons that I can't even begin to explain. If you want something new, I would save up about $200 and check out the Yamaha FG700 and Washburn D10S. Again, if you look used, you might be able to find them for less. But both of those guitars are great values.

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.

you're asking for a whole lot out of $120. you can certainly get an acoustic-electric for $120, but i'd be hard pressed to call them "really good." for $120 you're going to be looking at an all laminate guitar with a less than desireable pickup system. there is always a chance you might can find a better guitar at a pawn shop or on eBay as roamingbard said. definitely have a look around your area and do some browsing around eBay. i don't really like to reccomend buying guitars from websites like eBay since you can't play the exact guitar before you buy it, but i think that you're going to find most guitars in this price range to be very comparable to one another... so in your case, i would definitely look around on eBay. my best advice to you would really be to try to save up a little more money. it's pretty difficult to find a decently well-made acoustic or acoustic-electric for under $200 or $300, respectively. the two guitars that roamingbard mentioned are definitely great bargains for a regular acoustic. i don't know of any better acoustic guitars for $200. if you are 100% positive that you MUST have an acoustic-electric, these are the cheapest ones that are still pretty good instruments, imo:

Washburn D10SCE ($329.99): http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Washburn-?sku=516865
Takamine EG340SC ($349.99): http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Takamine-G-Series-EG340SC-Dreadnought-Cutaway-AcousticElectric-Guitar?sku=512207
Alvarez RD20SC ($329.99): http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Alvarez-RD20SC-Regent-Series-Dreadnought-AcousticElectric-Cutaway?sku=518729
Epiphone AJ-200SCE ($299.99): http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-AJ200SCE-AcousticElectric-Guitar?sku=518367

of the four, i prefer the takamine model because i feel it's pickup system is superior to the other three... but that's obviously just a matter of opinion. maybe have a look around eBay and see if you can't find a good deal on one of those models!

Meh, I am going for full acoustic instead, looking at Yamaha models now.

I will go to the gutiar store to day and well, just check out some of the acoustics, under $250.
