Help Breed Pick a New Guitar
Alright guys, so I'm getting a new acoustic for le studio. My budget is 1300. I'm looking at Taylors and Martins mainly. Martin seems to be more my shin dig. My preferences are a warmer sounding guitar, preferably solid wood, made in the USA. I also prefer the tighter bodies like the 000 stuff, so lets avoid suggesting dreads.
So far it seems everything I can find within my budget thats readily available has at least 1 downside. The 000RSGT seems really nice, but its made in mexico. The D1GT is also an option, but its a dreadnought.
Why would the place of production be a factor in all of this? I know that certain companies like Fender have a reputation of having variances in quality depending on where it was made, but that isn't true for all companies. I would actually have proposed to take a look at a Japanese company called Aria,, who make pretty decent guitars around the 1k$ range. Can't give any specific recommendations, as this was mostly from my roommate's experience.
That's unfortunately all I can really say, I have very little experience other than vicariously through my roommate for guitar, so whatever. :v
Best of luck searching though!
