Instead of using Valves, could I use Light Bulbs instead? If so, would the new energy saving ones be OK? Coz I do a lot of playing

I got my pick stuck inside my guitar . . . . how am I supposed to get it out?
really personally preference dude ya gotta get yourself to the store and try em out for yourself basically play everything in your price range and narrow down what ya like. just a few words of wisdom is look for guitars with solid tops and avoid laminated ones.

I personally have played the Alvarez and that Yamaha, and I thought the tone of the Alvarez sounded much richer.

Like Tony said- try them for yourself, dude.
Yea definetly try them both out, but i have always thought that Alvarez really gives an amazing tone for such a cheap price.
