I'm wanting to buy a new acoustic guitar. I own a Taylor t5 and it's awesome. I need something strictly acoustic to play at my church and for acoustic projects in general. Less than 1,500 dollars. I can't decide if I'd rather get an acoustic and mic it or get an acoustic electric. I've been looking into Martin and some Gibson models. But i really love my t5 and I like I'm in acoustic guitar purgatory. lol..
Seconded. I'm a huge Guild fanboy. The GAD series is a steal for it's spec's and build quality. And it's American counterparts are of Martin/Gibson/Taylor quality at effectively 2/3 of the price.
I would also suggest looking at some Larrivees in that price range
It's Only Rock and Roll, But I like It
