I'm in the market for an acoustic guitar but I have no idea what to look for. I know a thing or two about the electric market, but I am clueless about where to start when it comes to acoustic. I've done some reading and like the idea of the Taylor big baby, but I would like to explore other similar options.
I'd like to be able to travel a bit with the guitar and not worry about it taking up my entire back seat. And I want something solid enough to take a bit of bumpin around. I don't want a full size acoustic and I also don't want one of those little toy travel guitars.
I would prefer to buy something used, as I can usually get a better product for a better price that way. But, I'm not opposed to something new, for the right price either.
I would like to keep it around $250 + or - $100, if possible. I know that isn't a lot, but this guitar will not be a show piece. I want it to play good and sound good, and I could really care less what it looks like.
Anyway, what options do you suggest I look for.
Thanks for your help.
