  • Best Acoustic Guitar Under $500.00?

    There are a number of recent threads on this very subject.

    I can personally vouche for Yamaha. The FG series is a very good value in the $200-$400 range.

    Many will be along with their recommendations.

      Crafter T-035 or Yamaha FG730. Personally I prefer the Crafter.

        Yamaha, and especially another vote for Crafter!

        Important thing that is so often stated here is to play as many guitars as possible, and go for the one that jumps out to you , It will cry "take me home"! We all want others to like, appreciate. approve our new purchase But it is you that will be living with your new guitar, not any of us, You are the one that it has to please! We can throw many suggestions to you But we may not have the same tastes as you......Good Luck and have fun with it.

        As always, we are still going to be oh so willing to shout our opinions if you ask for them further helping to confuse you even more as you try and choose!!!

          I bought my S6+Folk for $350. Worth every penny.

          My Guild GAD-25 was on sale for $489, and is quite a guitar, too.

              Yamaha L-series just squeaks in on this one, so I'd have to give those the nod for $500 and under (LL-6, LS-6, and LJ-6).

              For the under-$400 crowd, here's another vote for the Yamaha FG730/FG735 ($300-$350).

                Looks like a Yamaha CPX700, like this one:

                But it might be a CPX500, or CPX900. Looks a tad too big to be an APX.

                    I would check out the Seagull 25th Anniversary Mahogany Spruce. You may be able to get it for $380 from Musician's Friend:

                          The one in the link I posted looks very thin though...?
                          Those are very similar but they still look pretty thick...

                          The one that Hugh is playing looks pretty small...

                            Then it may be an APX (which is smaller, and thinner, than the CPX models).
