    If u have to choose between these two .. then GB&A anytime.. but don't blindly go for any GB&A .. Play it well n analyse it before goin for it .. coz two same company same model guitars can be a li'l different too ..

    I have a J&D acoustic and one electric. I really like the electric and the acoustic is'nt bad either. Before buying my guitar i played some Gb&a guitars as well the J&D. My observation was that the Gb&a felt good and sounded good but the sound was kinda boxed. The J&D on the other hand was really open sounding. Thats why i bought that guitar. So you better play both guitars and decide instead of taking someone's word that J&D is crap. Even cheap guitars can turn out sounding better than some high cost guitars. I've heard good things about Pluto so you might want to check that out too.

    In acoustic, the sound while playing should be the sole deciding factor, not the name. Ofcourse if it is from a reputed brand, the chances are that the warping, bending and other thigns may not happen.
    But you cant guarantee anythign for Acoustics.
    You donít get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.

    last window shopping i fell in love with the sound of J&D and probably will get one in this lifetime...
    ( i dont agree if u even remotely call it trash) but yeah agree 100% to what alph^^ says
    You can muffle the drums, and you can loosen the strings of the lyre, but who shall command the skylark not to sing?
