Yeah, I'm posting here because this is where I always found the most powerful brain trust regarding acoustics on the internet... so I am hopeful of getting the right answer as opposed to "Get a Martin you cheapskate..."
My eyes are getting worse and worse all the time. When I look at my Ibanez PF1, I see a solid top. I didn't think these inexpensive guitars came with a solid top so I'm submitting pics for y'all to check out and let me know. I got this thing for $100 or so bucks a few months ago, strung her with the damn cheapest set of acoustic strings I could find. Accuwounds, guage 13. (a box of 10 sets for $3.99 at my local GC) And she sounds brilliant, beautiful and full. Spruce top with maple back and sides.
