Ok UGers help me on this one ... I'm looking for a new guitar since my acoustic guitar is in very bad conditions and is also crap... I want a nice acoustic-electric guitar that costs between $200 and $400. It doesn't have to be too fancy, just a nice sounding guitar... Oh and it has to have an integrated tuner 'cause I might use it a lot when I'm at school or just out of my house.

So help me! NOW!

Seagull S6, little more expensive and without electronics but if you save a bit get the guitar and build the electronics like so:

I haven't really checked out too many acoustic/electrics, but I don't think the built in tuners are all that common. You can buy tuners that just stick to your guitar or buy a separate one and put it in the case with it (these are both assuming you don't just wanna tune by ear, which would be ideal).

it's stickied.

anyway... get any of those models with electronics, and you'll be set. if the guitar or it's brand isnt in that list, it's not there for a reason. ovations and ibanez acoustics aren't in that thread for a reason, so take note of that.


Basically, I agree with Captivate.
Just you probably want to primarily look at Alvarez's and Takamine's for acoustic-electric stuff. Both brands have integrated tuners, and generally good pickup systems. Both make high quailty, good sounding guitars.
The Yamaha Acoustic-electrics aren't too flash, but there acoustics are fantastic.

And just to be perfectly clear on this. Stay away from Ibanez's.
