    Go For a HOBNER JUMBO ROSE ..... Its a good one...
    Now you will get a brand called HOBMART which is actually HOBNER..
    THEY are using the new name....

    i am also in the same position. i am trying to find info on guitars. ppl please give ur opinion on the following guitars. which one is a better choice?
    i came across a thread abt gb&a vs yamha but the ppl have different opinions. some say yamaha is better n others say gb&a.

    Among them i've tried Signature and Hobner. In my opinion signature is the best. i own a jumbo one with a wonderful sound. in 5000/- you will get a descent one

    anyways, offtopic but i hv a question bout the strings. I have acoustic dreadnaught box >> korean made, so the strings (dunno which one) r dead. now i m looking for new strings, fender or ibanez n hv no idea bout the width or thickness of string to be used for mine. Can anyone suggest and which strings can be best to use.

    First of all what do u want to buy an Acoustic or an Electric?

    If u want an acoustic go for evergreen SIGNATURE guitar. It has good acoustics and a superb fret board.Costs around 2.5k to 3 k.

    If u r going for an electric guitar, U better increase ur budget. Coz buying a local made electric guitar is not worth the price. If u can afford a GB&A which is pretty good( around 8.5k ). I own a J&D which is worth the price ( around 10.5k ).

    we r talkin abt ACOUSTICS.
    n no one said nething abt buying a givson. the guy said that he owns a givson n now he is planning to buy another guitar. which one is better out of gb&a n signature?
    i have one thing more that i wanted to ask. none of u replied...if i buy a yamaha, wil a get some proof that its original???

    Hey pikrohit,

    Thanks for clearing me.

    As far as it comes to acoustic guitars, SIGNATURE is the best buy.
    However the acoustics of GB&A are good, but the fretboard sucks!.

    My opinion is go for a SIGNATURE.

    It rulz........

    I love the GB&A tone...Im not particularly impressed with their other features esp the fretboard and neck.

    never played a Signature before though.

    I used to own a Signature guitar....it had a nice sound but the neck was of typically ordinary finishing...since you want an upgrade and are willing to invest, I'd say try the Pluto...I played one briefly and was impressed for what it offers at around 3.3K(this is the basic model without EQ, tuner etc)...and then there is GB&A...go to the shop and try a few pieces..buy what suits you
