  • Any Cedar top'ed acoustics . . . .

    Pref no electronics.
    Body size, as big as pos. but not a deal breaker if it is not a Dread.

    PS : no classics, only steel string models.


    Thanx to all.

    I really like the Takamine GS430S. $300. Since you want a dread, check out the Tak GS330S.

          Tanglewood TW145-SC
          Solid cedar top, hog b&s, B-band electronics.
          Own it as a 12-string and love it. Not as much as my broken Ovation, but since my Ovation is broken (did I mention that?), I use it exclusively when playing live. The B-Band gives great control over the sound, tuning is rock stable. Comfy feel ... what else do I have to say?

            Epiphone Masterbilt AJ500RC if you want a 12 fret. You'll have to buy used though, they're discontinued.

            If you can find a Lag T300D, they're very nice sounding guitars IMO. Narrow neck might not be to your liking though.
            I own both of these and I'm very happy with them.

            and
            There's always the Seagull S6. I can't find anything not to like about it.

              There is a guy on e-bay in America doing some Avalon Silver series Grand Auditorium size with cedar tops for $300+.

              I have one of these that I picked up from the Avalon workshops here. Lovely cedar sound,but doesn't allow itself to be bullied by dreads. Great buy I reckon.
              Please give me talent and patience - lots and soon.

                  Seagull has a solid reputation, both for sound and quality. I'm completely happy with both of mine.

                    The Seagull S6 Original has fairly large body also ...

                        +1 on the Seagull. I have a 12er but have played a lot of their 6 string models...only thing is it scratches up really easily if you play aggressively (as I tend to).

                          Seagull S6 is the first one that comes to my mind. I've played a few and really liked them. Very good build quality and lovely woody tone.

                              Gotta agree with these, I had a GA7 which was stolen, but I loved the sound of that guitar, got many comments from guitarists and non guitarists, so rich and warm and full, I was so mad when it was taken! Allthough it was not an expensive guitar, It was a keeper, I may well buy another and some point.

                              Another Cedar Guitar I like is a Hagstrom G250 Hagstrom is a brand you do not hear much of for acoustics. (They are another PacRim Guitar, but very well put together, at least the 2 Hagstrom acoustics I have seem to be) Thing is if you look around, you can find some great deals on the line though.

                              The Hagstroms are a wider neck 13/4 nut,but it is a thin neck, the Crafter is 1 11/16 so they have different feels but they both have wonderful woody cedar tones!
