    confused between Hobner or GB&A?planning to buy this week

    Hi all,
    I am planning to buy a guitar this week.Really very confused whether to buy hobner or gb&a.
    I have heard that both of them are good brands in india.
    My budget is around 3500 k.Can some one please tell me which brand is better and if you can also provide me with a model number as well?
    I will start my search from Daryaganj(delhi) and then planning to visit Bharat store in lajpat nagar.
    I would be really helpful if you guys can guide me with the best shop to buy my new guitar.

    Waiting for your reply

    These are good guitars and well within your range:

    Granada PRS-1 Medium Cutaway Acoustic Guitar
    Pluto HW39-201C Medium Cutaway Acoustic Guitar

    I like the second one. All the best for your guitar.

    Ya I got Granada PRLD-18 Jumbo Acoustic Guitar. It cost me Rs. 4350/- Got some free stuff with it as Christmas is near (like strings, pick holder etc.)

    I also checked Pluto HW41-210 Jumbo Acoustic Guitar. It was very good sounding. But I wasn't too sure of its quality so got the Granada. And it was much comfortable for me to handle.

    i didnt understand "some gap btwn fret and strings". Guitars are supposed to have gap b/w frets and strings. Sound quality is great. My music teacher liked the guitar very much. He said it was a good model. He owns only expensive guitars like Hobner etc.

    I have uploaded the pics here:
