Tax refund is coming :cat: and I am already thinking of how to spend the cash!
I have actually been thinking about buying (or upgrading) a new Acou/Elec guitar for a few months now so the tax refund is a great excuse. I am looking for recommendations and also if you are looking to sell, feel free to PM me.
What I play currently?
I play an Epiphone Masterbilt AJ 500 RNS - this is a great guitar (especially for its price) and I had B-Band pickup setup on it. Some part of me doesn't want to let go of this baby (even if I upgrade to a nicer all solid wood)
What am I looking for?
Under 2000 USD
Acoustic/Electric Dreadnaught, Jumbo or GA sizes
I am more of a strumming /rhythm guy so looking for sitka spruce top and mahogony or rosewood body.
I have tried a few taylors and martins and the only martin that caught my eye was the HD28V (was $3000 new though). I guess like Taylors more (I liked 414ce) but open to 7 or 8 series used. I initially thought I would love me a gibson but the few ones I have tried in store (songwriter studio) didn't really feel any vibe.
So right now it's 414 new (about 1400) or 7 / 8 series used Taylor or a HD28V used if I can find one.
Any other suggestions? Should I even upgrade to these given I have a pretty sweet and working epi
