Yes I recall that post.This old thread might be interesting.
I have an older LS 6 that I like very much. I bought it used for $300.00
I also have an FS 830. Personally, I think the 800 series are amazing guitars for the price.
IMHO, it just might be impossible to get a better sounding/playing guitar in that price range.Sorry, I read your initial post incorrectly. I thought you meant LL or LS ...or...TA
They have an LL TA at our local music store. I have not been impressed with it. Admittedly, I dislike chorus and the reverb seemed lacking.
Personally, I would buy an LL16 (or similarLS) and an acoustic amp. My Fishman Loudbox was $325.00 used.
