Opinions wanted:what do you think are the best electro-acoustic guitars, £300 - £600?
What it says on the tin. I'm considering getting a new electro-acoustic:
* A cutaway,
* low action/ nice playability,
* no fret buzz.
* an inbuilt tuner,
* an attractive finish. [I love pearl inlays and some darker wood natural finishes [nothing beige or yellow]. Black is also good, but high maintenance.
I currently have a lovely half-size Taylor, but it can't be plugged in. Unfortunately Taylor electro acoustics seem to be out of my price range. I like the look and low action of Ovations/ imitation Ovations, but I'd rather not get a bowl-back due to their reputation for sliding, plus real Ovations are also extremely expensive.
Perhaps Crafter or Tanglewood would be good bets for this sort of mid-range budget?
I'd greatly appreciate any advice or recommendations, especially accompanied by pictures.
N.B., I typically use gage 11 strings on my current acoustic, and play predominantly rhythm.
