#beginquote# Hey Toonz, My first real acoustic guitar was a 1971 ovation. They weren't out for long, but I really liked the way it played. I still have it, although the tuning head broke off for the second time. I got mad at my boys and threw it on the ground, and that's how it broke the first time. Then I think from too much temperature variation, it broke again. I'm going to glue it again some day. About 5 years ago, I was in the mood to buy another guitar. I spent months going from music store to store in search of a guitar I was really comfortable with I came across an Ibanez AC300 grand concert which I reall love. I have played Martin guitars, which sound really nice, but they just didn't feel right. Taylor guitars sound ok, but they are way too expensive. Fender has some good acoustic guitars also. That's what Roger Waters and David Gilmore of Pink Floyd play. It's a matter of sound quality, comfort, ease of play, and also price. Most guitars start at about 350 US dollars, and go to the tens of thousands. One thing I was able to leave out when buying my guitar was all the flashy extras. They don't make it sound any better. Good luck in your search, Don I am a fragment of my imagination #endquote#
