I've been starting to play guitar 5 months ago, and progressing, but I'm stuck with a Yamaha C40 and it's starting to sound like god knows what, even after changing the strings for the 3rd time in 5 months. It's 9 years old. I like to play songs like Love Hurts by Incubus, Collide by Howie Day, Carry you home by James Blunt, Hero by enrique igelsias and other stuffs like that.

So...recently I raked up RM1600(Malaysian Currency) which is about 430USD, I can get a new guitar. But I'm torn between A Yamaha FG700S, Yamaha FG331, and a Ibanez EW20Asent. The Yamaha store is more convenient. The Ibanez store is a lil bit less convenient.

Which is better?

I heard that Ibanez acoustics weren't that great... I'd go with one of the Yamaha's but i'm not sure which of the two is better... so i'd say play'em enjoy'em then buy one... your the captain... you make the call
In your eyes I see the darkness that tourments you, and in your head where it dwells, I'll give you my hand if you reach out and grab it, let's walk away from this hell.

Yamaha makes pretty good low end guitars, and Ibanez tends to suck acoustic. Try them out, see which one you like more.

Yamaha, Takami and Epiphone can make some very decent low end guitars.

Avoid Ibanez, Dean and Fender acoustics.
- Fender, Taylor, Martin, Ibanez, Ramirez, Marshall, Boss, Morley, Mesa/Boogie, Univox, Shure, Monster, Dunlop, Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio, Lace, Sperzel, DW, Tama, Zildjian, and a little Johnnie Walker

oh. kay. thanks alot.

So I keep hearing about all these pickups. And I've been wondering, is it easy to learn how to install pickups on your own?

i think for a soundhole pick up you just need to drill a hole in the bottom.

honestly you don't need a pickup unless you are planning on gigging.

Roland Cube 30x

That's only if you want the soundhole pickup perma-installed like me.

I wouldn't try to install electronics on your own.
