Just bought an AD25/SM. Would highly highly recommend.

My experience with Black Magic has been spotty. I played one and it sounded fantastic... on the verge of better than my AD25... and I played another and it sounded worse than my Cheap Fender Acoustic. It does have a very cery different tone than most acoustics I've played though and sounded pretty good on the one.

I would still recommend the AD out of those two, I thought it had a much better feel to it (playing wise).

cool...i went back today and played everything again...and it all changed...the rosewood back that i didnt like yesterday sounded the best to me today...so i bought the ad25/sr....and im very happy...it was between that and the taylor 114ce...the taylor was nice but didnt have a solid back...and also came with a bag...i got my breedlove with hardshell for $600 flat...so i cant complain...and its beefy...prob gonna change my strings to martin and call it a day
