    That's a good budget for an acoustic. I would definitely recommend these -
    1. Fender CD60 - Rs 7700(At Bajaao.Com)
    Dreadnought Shape. 20 frets. I think its a spruce top, not sure really.
    2. Fender CD60CE - Rs 11500(At Bajaao.Com)
    Same thing but electro acoustic with fender pickups and 3-band EQ.
    I don't live in Kolkata so can't say anything about the shops but do check them out.

    thnx kenny .. ya th fender is in my radar , but again .. im looking for a dreadnought with a cutaway .. thing is i dont have any typical genre preference when it comes to playing .. thus in case of songs which involve using frets beyond 15 it wud b easier to play with a cutaway..
    but if i dont find any satisfactory solution i wud definitely consider this .. along with some yamahas ofcrse !
    any other suggestions ?? does ibanez make eargasmic and affordable acoustic guitars ??!! also also .. can anybody please tell me something on the takamine models .. ive heard they make great guitars !

    Well...the Fender CD60SCE (the electro acoustic version) is a cutaway..!!
    And you dont need to worry about the genre of music with acoustic...frankly speaking...an acoustic is the most versatile type of guitar...!!
    Don't know about Takamine or Ibanez but i heard that the Matin series of guitars is very good...check em out...maybe Bajaao has them on sale...!!

    rosewood bridge and fretboard

    Thanks kunal for ur interest.
    but i can make a dreadnought but without cutaway because bending that too sharp is
    not possible by hand. it requires machines.
    as far as my guitars i have uploaded the pics of my classical guitar.

    pls visit the link for the sound. sorry for poor quality camera.
    i do have an imported engleman spruce .
    pls let me know that would u be interested in without cut away.
    i will deliver the guitar at ur place.
    where are u located.
    waiting for ur reply....
