I have $800 saved up and want to upgrade my cheapo acoustic to something decent. I plan on just flat picking, playing dylan, jack johnson, ben harper, dispatch, etc. So I want a solid wood acoustic that gives a mellow tone that is good for playing solo acoustic/singing along with.
Right now on my list to play are:
1. Martin D-15
2. Larrivee D-03
3. Tacoma DM9
4. Taylor 210
The larrivee is actually a little more than I wanted to spend, but if it is that much better than the others I'll get it. I was just wondering if there were any other guitars in my price range I should consider and if anyone could tell me some things about the four I listed.
