I am an intermediate, left handed player looking for a new acoustic in the $500 to $750 range. I want a cutaway body and something that is good for "unplugging" john mayer or jimi hendrix music. any suggestions? also, should i look into an acoustic-electric or stick to a straight acoustic for that price range? thanks
Straight up acoustic if you don't intend on amping it. Why waste the money on the electronics if you won't be using them? They can always be added on later if you should so desire. However, generally speaking, if you opt for a cutaway, then you'll get the electronics. Special orders notwithstanding.
