Does anyone know......
Any brand of either acoustic or acoustic/electric that has a similiar feel to an electric guitar. Meaning the lower action and easier to finger. My father is interested in upgrading his current guitar and wanted some advice. I believe he is looking to spend up to $600. Thank you.
i stumbled over this today
Meaning the lower action and easier to finger
Action is adjustable so a reputable shop should be able to create a nice low action on any undamaged guitar. I adjusted the action on a guitar once myself with good results, but I took my new guitar to the local shop and the result was spectacular. From now on Ill drop the 42 bucks they charged me any day for a quality setup.
Alvarez also puts a somewhat thinner neck on their acoustics.

I believe that at least the neck of my Fender Newporter is quite comparable to a Strat. Action is different, but experimenting with strings I *think* you can get a pretty electric feel to it.
...only thing I know how to do is to keep on keepin' on...

For electric/acoustic guitars that feel electric, I don't think you cango wrong with a Godin. VERY electric neck.

Do not get a Strat acoustic or whatever they are called.
Thin, ugly sounding things (like most Fender acoustic guitars (IMO) , but worse, much worse.)

Get a hollowbody electric like this:
This is a great guitar made famous by the Beatles, John Lennon in particular.
These guitars can sound like a true acoustic, but they can Rock too.
A budget semi-hollowbody with a great reputation is this:
Guitars like this are the best of both worlds.
