hi guys!

(bear with me while i go through A bit of the boring stuff...)

a few years back whilst in the army i had to give up my beloved guitar playing. since then i've been itching to get back on guitars! i started off as a classical player, and then moved on to electric in much later part of my guitar playing years.

and now, i'm ready to pick up what i've left behind!

primarily i'll be going into acoustic, and specifically... fingerstyle guitar. therefore i'm looking for a new acoustic guitar!

until now the guitars i've browsed is the Yamaha APX/CPX 500 and 700... i've seen the Lee Guitars but oh dear are they expensive. Therefore i would like to ask if anyone has any recommendation for a good and affordable acoustic guitar! my budget is around $600-$700...

i like bright guitars but with some hints of warmness, so i tend to go towards higher gauges strings. but at the same time preferbly one that isn't too stiff.. i had a APX-4a once and it made me tear everytime i tried to do bends on it.

thanks in advance!!

get a maestro.The elite series are around your budget.Get the grand auditorium body (EA3) its made for fingerstyle, solid red cedar top with rosewood back and sides, so it should be pretty warm.check out their site http://tinyurl.com/cypvy7
I own an EJ3 and i think it sounds great.
