I bought an ovation cs 257 a while back, and only recently have I realized that it is VERY quiet. It was made to be plugged in, and now I need a good loud acoustic for under $600. Any ideas?
MY GEAR-
Epiphone Les Paul Custom
Roland Cube 15
Alverez/Yairi 1995 YM-1
Ovation Celebrity
Peavey Classic 30
Electro Harmonix Big Muff USA Reissue

My myspace. Yeah. I know it sucks.

Well, if you want normal loud, go for a dread, or if you want a boomier, bassier loud, go for a jumbo. As usual, just go to a guitar store and try a bunch of guitars in your price range, and see which one you like best, there is really no other way.
