I'm looking for my first acoustic, but thought i would go with an acoustic electric since you can plug it in. I'm looking for a good one with a solid top for under or around $450
Epiphone EJ 220 i think is the name is one of my faves, havent bought it yet however, looks good imo
Fender Labrea or any of the California acoustic series
what about Seagulls? I never played one but I've read some stuff on them.
Seagulls are probably the best value for Under $450. Avoid Fender and Ibanez.
