Hi Friends, I have been a regular visitor to this site since the past one month and am posting my first message. I have a Givson G215 f-Hole model the neck of which has bended now. I want to buy a new good Acoustic Guitar. I went through all the discussions & tips on purchase of new Guitar in this forum and had frozen on buying either a Hobner 240 cutaway or an imported guitar. The other day I went through a few shops and really liked the SQUIER SD6 Natural Acoustic Guitar (( picture attached)) . It sounded amazing.... even better than the Yamaha or the Samick available in the shop. But it costs Rs. 8000/-. ..(and its of a dreadnought shape and does not have a cut)
Do you suggest I buy a Hobner cutaway(Rs. 3500-4000) and put good bronze strings, or shall I go ahead and buy the SQUIER?
The YAMAHAs & SAMICKS are very costly.. (start at Rs. 12000/-+), and the one GB&A available there (for Rs. 5000/-) did not sound or feel good.
Pls suggest. My budget is anthing till Rs. 8000/- and would ideally like to have a cutaway jumbo. Picture of SQUIER attached.
