No Power, Need Guitar

Yes, I know you’re here expecting a brilliantly hilarious or inspired insightful post. Or even pics of my kids.

But, alas, I accidentally left my Macbook Pro’s power supply at the office. DOOOHHH!!!

So, let me leave you with this question that has been plaguing me for the past several weeks:

What, in your opinion, is the best acoustic guitar I can get for around $200?

Yes, I’m a keyboardist by trade, but I need to keep practicing my sweet axe chops at home. Plus, Ella likes dancing to live music, so I must oblige.

Let me know!

  1. yamaha, epiphone, and ibanez (artwood series) have a few decent offerings for under $300. if you can find anything with a solid top in that price range (and i beleieve yamaha makes some) then go for it.

  2. A Sammick. <- (I think that is how you spell it.) I too, am a keyboardist/ worship leader by trade. Sammicks really suck, but the action is lower than other cheap guitars, so at least it doesn’t feel like a cheap guitar.

  3. If you’re going to push the budget up to $300, then you should consider the baby Taylor! (you could probably find one for around $200 though) It’s got a great unique sound… It’s very mobile… Sounds great… And, you can start teaching your kids now since their arms are probably too short to reach around a full sized guitar. Shoot… what more could you ask for?

  4. For the money, I defy anyone to find an acoustic guitar with better playability and intonation than a Yamaha. Plus they look great! I bought one for my dad a couple years back and it’s the best $300 I’ve ever spent.

    One word of warning, don’t buy the “thinline”. When it comes to a copy of the scriptures…good idea. When it comes to an acoustic guitar…not. Buy the Yamaha. You’ll thank me.

  5. I bought my rogue guitar from musicians friend for 150 and I love it. It is acoustic electric and has a fishman pickup in it. Great action and a brighter sound but a really solid guitar.
