  • Acoustic guitars tick me off.

    I'm looking at other options of the concept of "j45"

    And every single company i look at has a base model that's aaaaalmost like it. But then you find the right specs. And then its all BAM + another $1000 to the price tag.

    Why are acoustics so unrealisticly expensive?

    try shopping by your ear and not specs.

      I hear ya weems, but look at it from this perspective:

      When you consider what a professional-quality saxophone or trumpet go for...

      Or when you consider what a nice electric guitar rig would run...

      Acoustic prices don't look so bad, relatively.

            try making one yourself, betcha you start to see why they cost what they cost. 600-1000 is a bargain imo, i got mine over 10 years ago and have logged countless hours on it and still love it - worth every penny imo.

              look for an 00 or 000 style. unplugged you can hear the vocalist over the guitar (campfire/beach parties). plugged in you can eq it where you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. save the $

                Basically.
                I want Dreadnaught.
                Sitka top.
                Mahogany back and sides.

                Nothing fancy.
                clear coat on top.
                Bone nut and the works..
                Badass tuners.

                Taylor DN5 - $2,100
                Larrivee D-05 - $1800

                I " want " to spend $800-1000.

                *oh and blueridge are the most gawdy mother ****************ing acoustics i've ever seen. I really want to know what their design team were smoking, and are continuously smoking that they think that was a good decision. But yes they sound great.

                    And that would be Martin?

                    I lust after a d28. and that's all i've really researched.

                    And to those preaching : specs over playability.
                    When i say specs, i want specific specs for a specific sound. I've played all the different variations of the Dreadnaught and i find to my ears the sitka/mahogany to be the most pleasing.

                      you can't just say 00 / 000

                      What the **************** does that mean

                        Larrivee D-03 (Sapele)
                        Taylor DN3 (Sapele)

                        Sapele sounds/looks pretty much identical to mahogany, although it's sometimes stripey looking.

                          Just kidding. I used to be into dreadnaughts until I kept hearing the Black Crows "She Talks to Angels".

                            Sapele makes me want to vomit. Lacks the warmth and oomph "real" mahogany gives.
