I'm sure this has been asked before (apologies), but I'm waving my Noob-get-out-of-jail-free card: I'm looking for an electro-acoustic which will give me that nice "chunk" sound and has a great bass response with which I could perform and which wouldn't get lost behind the vocals (whether or not it's me who is singing). I've looked at Martin, Taylor and Gibson guitars, with their price-tags, and can't go there at the moment; I've also looked at Faith and some other UK builders. It's not pressing - I'm not in a hurry - and I don't have much more than about £1250 to spend, new or second hand. My preference is dark wood (I have a mahogany GS-mini and a Sigma modern series gk2ce-4+ koa, which is lovely, but I'm looking for a non-cutaway body). I don't care too much what it says on the headstock - in fact, I'd prefer something unusual, if I can stretch to it. The guitar doesn't need to have any fancy appointments on it, either. Ideally it comes with a hard case though, or I can get one, as it's probably going to get gigged...eventually
Any thoughts/advice gratefully received.
