Hi everyone, first post. I am not a total beginner. I played in some bands back in the 70's. Been away from the 6 string for a while. Need some suggestions on a Acoustic/Electric Under $300 Looking at the Dean,Ibanez,Takamine,Yamaha,ETC looking for something I can play at home no Amp and Play at church with amp. Prefer a cutaway style. Thanks

I have a Martin Sigma DM-1STCE Cutaway Acoustic-Electric solid top. it's really nice sounding & well made.
It looks like they are discontinued though. Would be worth watching Ebay for.

Alvarez is another brand to look at.

At the $300 dollar market most of the names you mentioned are in hot competetion and want your money if/when you upgrade. The best is truly personal preference of sound and look as you try out the available models.

Check out Alavarez guitars. I've owned two of their acoustics and have been very happy with them.

I have a friend who plays a really inexpensive Dean and for the money it sounds great. I'm a Taylor man myself, but you won't find one in that price range unless you go used.
