    Which acoustic guitar for $300

    Hi Guys

    I've finally made up my mind to get an acoustic guitar.

    MY budget is max $300.

    Heard a lot of good things about yamaha and Maestro acoustics.

    Which brand would u guys recommend?

    Pls state the model too.

    Tks!

    Try some Maestro... The guitars are usually good in quality and only a few exceptions. If you happen to try something and it sounds good, get that and not another unit in the store room cause they may sound different. Then again, you can ask to try some of the stock models not an display to compare.

    Try checking out the Fina 3150, I'm thinking of getting it as a spare acoustic.

    If it is a laminate guitar, it most probably will last longer then a solid top or full solid guitar given a w/o care condition. The theory behind this is simple. Furniture are made from laminate wood as well.. you think you'll care about the humidity or this or that of your furniture? But, they last long don't they? yup.. if you need a guitar for durability and not the sound, get a laminate guitar~ i got 1 for pure beach party/bbq purpose!

    +1. Laminates are in general, stronger than a thin solid top. The pros of solid top being:
    - soundboard matures with age; seasoned sound
    - better projection; louder.

    Btw, to fellow Fina 3150 owners and would-be owners, let me know what you think of that guitar? Heard plenty of good reviews of it on guitar4christ forum. Seems like a very value-for-money solid top.

    Cheers!
