    Default Any guitar players on here?

    Looking to buy a new steel string acoustic circa £500. Narrowed down to a couple of guitars but can't decide. Anyone on here play and got any recommendations?
    Thanks

    I play (or try to) a Taylor 214e, slightly over your budget, I paid £599 for it, but a superb guitar.

    Edit: The one in this pic... (excuse the size, it's one I had on my photobucket account not one I host myself).

    There are a lot of good guitars out there for that type of money.Taylor as above,Takamine are another excellent range,Martin, even the dearer Washburn.My advice would be to go to a shop and try all in your price range as it is a personel thing.What feels right to you would maybe not feel right to me( I tried 8 fender jazz guitars one day and each one was slightly different feel).Depends also if you want just acoustic or semi.Maybe invest £500 in acoustic then later put on a good pickup.Best of luck and hope you get what you want

    Been to quite a few shops... spent hours yesterday and narrowed down to a Martin D-15 and a Taylor 210. Think i'm going with the Martin after hours of pondering!

    Very nice

    I've played the guitar on and off for years. Got a 1980 Fender Statocaster Plus, and a Gibson ES-175... The final guitar to finish the collection will be a Taylor 414... but 'Martins' are very nice as well...

    Enjoy, and dont forget to post some 'YouTube' vids of you playing

    One of my mates Keith is the one to talk to... he's got about 7 guitars... Fender, Gibson, Rickenbacker, Gretch, Epiphone to name a few.... lovely collection....
