A suggest for a cutaway acoustic guitar.
Hallo everyone , I'm looking for this kind of guitar , with a good relation between price and quality . Unfortunately I've not more than 600/700 euros-dollars , but I hope in a breakthrough with my actual Fender CD-100 ( that it seems to me not so bad for its price ...). I mostly play Travis style and folk , and anyway the thing more important for me is the playability and the stock low action ; I guess that in the brands of acoustic guitars may be some difference in this sense (I think , to the PRS for the electrics , for example… ) , though of course almost everything is in the hands of player . Integrated pick-up is welcome , but not really fundamental . Thank you

I suggest a used Breedlove Stage concert (all solid wood). Here's one on Reverb:

I thank you , but too much shipping cost for Italy , bad customs experience . I'm looking for something I can find in Europe .

Are Tanglewood guitars similar to what you are looking for? It's a British (MIC) guitar though so you may get a different kind of customs experience.

OK. How about Faith Guitars in the UK. Lots of good reviews on this forum and should be in your price range.

Good luck.

Look at the newer Alvarez models available over here in the States; don't know if you can get them in Italy...

They make a couple models that are just wonderful, especially for the money.

As far as the low action goes? ANY good guitar can be set-up to play the way you want it to... nice to have a low action, I know, but the downside is that playing just a little bit more firmly will create buzzing on the frets... there's no way around that, it's what we call the Law of Diminishing Returns over here - or at least I call it that!

700 euros is more like $1700 US, right? A bit over double? That's a good amount of money to spend, and you should find many choices... although it may take some traveling to get ot them!

What about the Guild Westerly series? I have a D-120c that is very good.

I really thank everyone for your inputs . Anyway I heard about the better playability referred to the stock low action of some brands of electric guitars ,without prejudice to the fact that a low action imply a possible buzz and less sustain ; evidently it's not the same for acoustic guitars .More ,I'd like to avoid as much as possible luthiers , here in Italy very expensive and very often not god enough.

The “Swiss army knife” of guitars in that price range, knowing that the Euro is about $1.12, give you about $800 usd, try to find a Taylor 114.

For me I would go the Furch route ,Furch blue series is in you bracket the GA is a good bet , and in Europe .....

Sigma makes some awfully nice guitars that are available in Europe, but not in the US. They are priced well and the ones I have heard sound really good.

How about a PRS SE Acoustic?

HeyMikey 08-06-2019 08:16 PM

Guild Westerly series OM or D -140ce

Try the Yamaha FGX800C. An acoustic/electric cut away. My bandmates all like to play it and it sounds good unplugged as well. It goes for around $300 USD on Amazon and is one of the favorites in my collection. Good luck with your search. Remember, play anything in your price range.
