Reasonably priced acoustic.

My wife's grandson is wanting a quality acoustic, and has started saving up for one. He would love a Taylor, but realises that would take too long to save for on pocket money. What would you guys recommend he look at?

    I've always rated both Yamaha and Washburn's low end acoustics

    Sigma have a good reputaion for almost copies. They were owned by C F Martin for a while and their Martinesq guitars are very good (not just for the price).

    Vintage V300MH - an utter steal at £170 and winner of best guitar under £1000 one year by The Guitar Magazine.

    It has certainly cured my GAS.

    I suggested Vintage, going on your previous recommendations. I'll push him in that direction.

    The naked Faith models sound amazing. Not as cheap as Vintage though, but still great value for money at around £300.
    Has anyone here tried Harley Benton acoustics? Their electrics have such great reviews, I’m curious how their other lines measure up.

    Eating fewer vegetables cured my GAS.

    I tried naked Faith when I was looking to buy my Larrivée, and was suitably impressed. A lot of guitar for the money.
