    hii there everybody
    i'm looking forward to buy an acoustic guitar in the range upto 5k
    i already own a hobner jumbo guitar but i'm nt satisfied wid the sound.
    i hv seen grenada,jimm,pluto guitars and they sound and look really good, but hv heard that life of chinese guitars isn't much.so i'm all the more much confused.
    please guide me as to which guitar i should purchase?

    (I don't really know that much about acoustic guitars...probably because I never played a steel string that much.)

    If in Delhi, I'd also recommend going to Bhargavas...all other places don't really have a wide selection. OnStage Lajpat, for instance, is FULL of Corts, and I think all are the same model >.<

    there won't be any significant difference in quality up to 5k, i think. add 2-3k more and you might get something which is clearly different...

    ^What would you recommend, for instance, out of Bajaao's selection?
    (A few RL noobs/starters want me to help them buy one, and they keep asking me for how much a beginners' steel string acoustic will cost, I've no idea what to say. Halp. >_>)

    The Takamine or Ibanez V72, from what I could see on Bajaao. Although I don't see why you shouldn't spend close to as much as you would on an electric. There are nice Ovations Fenders and Takamines around 15k.

    +1, but those noobs probably wont when they see a Givson going for 3 or 4, hence the question. xD But then again, I guess...

    then please suggest me the model names in acoustic guitars which are good near 5 to 6k range...

    GuitarDoctor mentioned Yamaha F310. Seems nice from reviews. (and I was just kidding about the C70, decent guitar, but it's a classical, not what you're asking for.)

    thehundredthone mentioned (I deduce)

    Don't buy Givson. I'd say save up a little more and buy the Yamaha F310.

    Which city do you live in?

    guitars around 5k..

    hii there...if u are willing to spend 5k for a guitar, try washburn ..they r gr8 guitars...u can spot a OG2 for around 5k...its a gr8 guitar in that price range...i think u will get a Washburn WD10 (all wood, voted best guitar under $500)for abt 7k...for price range below 10-15k its hard to find non chinese guitars bro.
