I would think that one of the electro-acoustic models might be nice to have. Especially as a "companion" to an old unpluggable mahogany D-18.

Amplifying the acoustic sound distorts it a bit anyway, so any subtle differences between the sapele-wood sound versus mahogany (i.e., any aspects in which the sapele might be discernably inferior) would presumably be minimized.

Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to consider anything costing $2599 to be "inexpensive."
