  1. Hey guys this is a kind of survey to find out which is the best acoustic out there. Ok so heres the question once again ... "If u had 5000-6000 rs which ACOUSTIC guitar would u buy and WHY?"
    please take out time to reply coz it would be very helpful for many people ( including me ...lol) who keep asking this question again and again.

    For 5-6 K there are two brands.....Gb&a and JD Brothers..both are Korean...u might get a few Granada models under 6K....

    u raise your budget to 10k I have a very barely used Ovation Applause AE28 in Burgundy Red (wine) colour with heavily padded orginal MARS gig bag (which if you know is worth $50 itself). Let me know. That's a firm price.

    And, its Acoustic Electric with Volume and Tone Controls - comes with gig bag (as said above), 2 picks and 1 guitar lead cable to amp it up if you wish....might be a good deal...let me know! And yeah, its in Mumbai!
  7. thank ppl...

    actually i wanted to but a really good guitar ...ive been playing hobner export quality( dont know the model no....it has round body) ..it really sounds awsome...but i prefer F-cut coz its easier to play lead higher down the fret.
    obviously i didnt want to buy hobner again( though h-265 is very good guitar)...
    so after doing a kind of searh n survey at IGT im planning to buy GB&A guitar from DELHI.
    hey blackmamba thanks for ur reply...but 10 k is little too much for me ( im a student...n 10 k is a lot for me).
    hey can anyone tell me any model no.(gb&a...f-cut)
    thanks for ur replies.

    Too bad your budget is nowhere close to 10k...have you ever played or heard an Ovation??? Mine's a cut-away, Acoustic-Electric and brilliant sounding....pass the word around in case anyone is interested....

    I paid like $350 for it with the case....selling for 10k as seriously I have no use for it and its sitting in the case since a year....brand new condition and plays like butter!!! Let me know if you seriously wanna buy it...since I'm in Mumbai only for 7 days!!!

    @atul.....i think u want a cutaway....not an F cut...f cut is when the guitar has a f shaped hole instead of a round one.....and belive me the only help that f cut will give you in playing leads is that it will give u a crisper tone more suited for lead playing .......no help reachng th e frets bro...........ovations rock......wish i could go for one wish i could afford one :cry2:

    hey guys i did lots of search in delhi and on the net. Blackmamba, get real ,ovation ae 28 costs something like $180(new) thats exactly Rs.7,835. add 2k for a case. ovation ae28 is available here for around 13k. i bought my washburn just 3 days before after checking the ovations and i think washburn($290 outside, 14-15k here) sounds much better. but still if anyone wants to go for ovation then go for a deep bowl one instead of shallow cause shallow bowl sounds good only when it is plugged in . but personally i dont prefer the fibre back sound.wood is gr8. and akkyy21 just go to any guitar shop and try some imported brands you'll fel the diff. between what our indians make and what the others play(i myself used to love my givson venus rose but got real after playing the others). montana's are also good. but i would rather stick with gb&a. there is this beautiful gb&a available for around 7-8k in gloss black cutaway and a 3bandeq pickup. it sounds great too both ways. i would have gone for it if i didnt wanted to buy a high end acoustic. see if u can spot it. i bought my guitar from bharat in lajpat nagar the guys name is amar. bargain good and u'll end up in a good deal(otherwise tell him ramit from faridbad sent you and he'll knock of few bucks). also make sure u get a hard case(imported if u can afford one)gig bags are ok for givson or hobner but anything above 6k requires care. u can also get a pickup installed for around 1000-1500 from them. main thing is buy wat suits you. go and play everything without looking at the price first. you and your guitar should fuse together if you want gr8 things to happen...... ;-) so decide carefully and whole heartedly.
