    I ll be buying a new acoustic guitar soon.I have zeroed in on pluto with tuner,pickup and equalizer and yamaha f210 or 310. Not having played either i would like you to suggest me which one should i go for.

    Have tried out both.....

    for gigs and palying live go for pluto.......bcuz it features a very good tuner and pick up.......which is essential for gigs.....

    for home practicin go for the yamaha for superior quality.....

    but i should warn you that if u pick option no 2 u might do a gig at some point in ur life and if u have a yamaha it wont sound good....
    i think u should buy the pluto for its pick up.......

    Yamaha - Superior Quality wood...very nice Guitar........And dont worry about playing live at this stage. Better go for a good quality guitar. It will last long.

    One can even sound like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani on JAVA Electric or any other cheap acoustic provided he is skilled enough......

    @Sukrut No gigs. But i'd like a pick up "just" to tune the guitar. What say?

    @mmg. I would like a pick up but will compromise if the quality is far superior .

    @Nemisis. What?

    @NAZR dude u better invest in a YAMAHA rather than a PLUTO
    ...or go for a GB&A with pickup/tuner/ sounds pretty good...
    the sound from the bass strings is damn clear..n the pickup is rugged too...
    @ nemesis.. whay say???

    Why is pickups such an issue with acoustic?

    Microphones dont exist?

    I need a pick up just to tune the guitar.Can i do it with a mic?

    And also your opinion on the guitars mentioned?

    ^I always tune the guitar with a mic.
    It's been ages I used the pick up of my acoustic.

    Though having a pick up would be good if you perform on stage like Jack Johnson.. Standing, swinging, playing and singing.

    But having a good guitar is obviously the first priority.

    Pick ups could be later fixed on the guitar if required. No big deal.

    EDIT: Regarding the guitars. I've played a pluto and I liked it but I would be more inclined towards the Yamaha. The Yamaha has 20 frets which would not allow u to play certain leads but again if you wanted to play leads on acoustic you won't go for a Jumbo Yamaha right?

    Why did you not consider Hobner or even Granada?
    It's quite confusing actually because I even loved one of the GB&a.

    So my final say would be play the guitar, check it's fretboard for smoothness and feel it.

    Arguably even a Givson could outclass the others if you find a right one.
