Hi All I would like to use my first post to seek advice on an iminent new guitar purchase.My aim is to buy an all solid rosewood backed acoustic with spruce top and I have narrowed it down to about five possibles within my budget. £600 - £1000. I have tried all the following guitars and been impressed with them all. Like to play fingerstyle with some contemporary or boum chicka strumming to accompany songs and also the odd instrumental piece. The guitars are: Takamine NV460S used but in excellent condition. Guild 150Rce new Freshman FA400D ex demo Yamaha LL16 new A guitar which would be at the top of my budget limit is the Martin D16GT but as yet I have not been able to locate one to try. There is my dilemna. Would be grateful to hear from any members who have ideas on the listed guitars or might want to suggest other alternatives within the budget. Look forward to hearing your views. cheers Tony
