Hi folks, I've not had my eye on any acoustic guitars for the best part of 7 or 8 years, and due to moving abroad and fancying a change, I'm thinking off selling my Martin DC15E.
I fancy a non cutaway, and don't play the acoustic enough to justify having two lying around. I can't say I use the same argument with electric guitars though!
I bought that Martin used, and it need a bit of work to get the neck right, so I don't expect any new guitar to not need some tweaks.
I'm not too precious about woods etc and am looking at something reasonably priced.
Funnily enough, one of the nicest guitars I've ever played apart from a Gibson hummingbird, was a bog standard Big Baby Taylor, so I'm thinking of one of these. Maybe this would be considered a step down compared to what I'm looking to sell but at least I'd have peace of mind that if it were damaged etc, it would always be replaceable. The one I played just felt great.
Other options are the Martin DRS1, OOO10E, Taylor 110e. I know they're a good bit of a step up from the Big Baby Taylor but would be in or around the price point. A step sideways if you will....
I just listened to some demos on Thomann to get a rough idea, and the Martin DRS or Taylor 110 sounded the best, but it's hard to call with those sound demos at times...
Other options are Seagull (any I've ever played have been decent) and Yamaha.
Thoughs? Opinions? Advice?
