    Took him down to the store to find a new acoustic to replace the stolen Ibanez as a graduation gift. He tried everything under $600 including a Taylor 110, a Martin, some Yamahas and others. In the end, the clear winner to all three of us was a used Epi Masterbuilt dread. Even came with case. We saved enough that we bought him a nice uke and a bag for it.


    The Masterbuilt is a really good sounding guitar.

    This thing is pretty impressive. Solid mahogany back, mahogany neck, solid spruce top, Grover sta-tite tuners, bone nut and a beautiful rosewood board with abalone inlays. It plays great and sounds absolutely huge. I see why these get a lot of love.

    I helped one of my few adult students pick a guitar. We played everything under $1500 and the Masterbilt was the best of the lot. Hell, there were 3 really good Masterbilts, but this one just had the mojo.

    Hope your kid enjoys his for years to come. :thu:

    It's a DR500. No electronics.

    That was the one. I needed electronics and that was why I sold it to a guy on HCGJ. I was a really sweet mellow tone from that guitar.

    I like it. I really need to pick up an acoustic one of these days.

    These are worth a look. It sounded better than the $500 martins and the taylor 110.
    The surprise of the trip (besides this one) was a Fender.
    A Kingman Elvis Presley model. That one was pretty nice.
