I looked at the lower end Takamines and Washburns before I bought this, I might have bought a Seagle S6 if I had seen one first, but I like having a pickup and I didn't spend extra to get one. Overall, this was a great guitar for the money I spent on it and I think It's good enough to last for a while, I play it a lot and it has held up very well.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $312.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Cross Music
Features:
Guitar made in Korea I think, laminate guitar with good pickup(fishman) sounds good unplugged, even better through a small tube amp.Has natural finis very well made, action is nice and low, easy to play. This is a cutaway auditorium style which allows easy accessibility to the upper frets. sound is full and balacnced throuout and the tuners are a sealed Grover type ( not Grovers) and it stays in tune when sitting a while and afer it's been played
Playability:
This guitar plays well, it's the first guitar I've bout in about twenty five years, so I wasn't aware of a lot of stuff that was out there. If It were stolen I'd probably buy another one for the price, because I like having the pickup and eq that's in it
Sound Quality:
Sounds good, a little more treble than I like until it's plugged in then you can use the eq to give it a better bottom end. good for coffee house work and travels well in hard case. I'm looking at a Taylor 310 now, because I belive it has a more balanced sound overall, but I'm very pleased that I bought this one
Durability:
Holds tune very well has adjustable truss rod accessed thfough sound hole, although once I seet it where I liked it it has stayed put. This guitar stays in tune and has a compensateing saddle so it is in tine throughout the entire neck. Hardware seems very durable, at least I haven't had a problem with it yet (2 years).

I looked at EVERYTHING, and this one was a great price, aesthetically pleasing, had great sound, and I liked the action. I would buy it again if I lost it, but I hope I never lose it (heh).
Price: $350.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Features:
Made in Korea. 21 frets, 6 strings. Pre-amp with phase, volume, bass, middle, treble, and shape.
Playability:
I love the action on this guitar. Neck allows for quick slides... not too fat. I enjoy this more than many guitars I have played on, but that's just personal preference. No flaws that I can think of.
Sound Quality:
No effects, but I usually use it with a 150 watt Marshall amp. I play some punk (yes, punk) on it and with gain it sounds JUST LIKE a regular electric. It is also great for alternative and folk music. Oh, and blues... sounds GREAT. It has a mellow sound, with the capability to really boom.
Durability:
It is reliable. I have not had to do anything to it yet, except, of course, for tuning it every time I play. Hardware is great, still, and shows no signs of wear, etc. Have not noticed any warping, etc., with climate changes.

I think the guitar retails for $480 new, which is a nice price for what you get. Its a solid, stageworthy acoustic without any stupid bells and whistles.
Model Year: 1997
Price: $200.00
Where Obtained: Friend
Features:
Spruce top, mahogony back with a nice fret acess thanks to the cutaway. My model has a decent EQ but the 1999 model has a fishman which is awesome.
Playability:
The frets are really well done, the action is low and the neck is straight. Just plain good.
Sound Quality:
Nothing special hear. A punchy sound that works well with pretty much any style of music. Kinda bassy. I play alot of dave mathews type stuff with it.
Durability:
My friends brother was walking down the stairs with it in his hand and fell. He got more damage than the guitar did.
