Thread Name: Best acoustic guitar under $1000?
Subject: RE: Best acoustic guitar under $1000?
Used quality guitar every time.When I found my Taylor 810 on consignment in the music store, that was it. Love at first sight. At the time, I had a J 45 Gibson that I got new in 1956. It couldn't hold a candle to the Taylor so I gave it to a good friend who likes Gibsons.

I've not been impressed with the smaller Taylors, in fact, I'm not impressed by any small guitar.

If you want a car, new and shiny is good, but in a guitar, it is worthless. It's all about sound, sound, sound. Playability can be acquired. Even Martins can be made to play easy.
