I have a Martin D-28 with a Dean Markley pick up, its not a true acoustic/ electric but it does play & sound great! My two cents!

I have a Guild True American DC5ENT . It's an acoustic/electric with cutaway, spruce top, rosewood back & sides, mahogany neck, ebony fretboard, gold hardware, and the Fishman prefix blender--a great acoustic pickup that combines piezos and a small internal condenser mic.
I bought this guitar in 1999 after doing a great deal of shopping around. Of all the guitars I played, I thought this offered the best playability and tone for the money by far.
However... the guitar has been in the repair shop for the past year for warranty repair. The bridge had begun to separate from the body and needed to be reattached. In addition, certain pieces of binding on the guitar's body had begun to separate from the body and needed to be reglued. Finally, due to neck shrinkage, the finish on the side of the fretboard has become "dimpled". I know other people on Jemsite have mentioned having similar problems with Guild acoustics, so I'd recommend steering clear of them.
So, all in all, as much as I love the tone of the Guild, as soon as it gets out of the repair shop I'll probably sell it and buy something else like a Takamine. I've got 2 Taks (a 12-string and classical) and even though they were cheaper than the Guild, they play and sound just as good.

Um...between the two, I think it'll most likely come down to a personal choice on which sounds/feels/looks better to you. But I'm no expert on the subject.

When I was looking for an acoustic/electric a couple years back, I found an Alvarez that sounded really good except it was some wild red color. I passed on that one. I wound up finding 2 that I really liked at the same store. One was a new Martin for about $1000 or a used "Pete Townsend" Takamine with hardshell case for $550. The Takamine didn't have a scratch on and still had the plastic on the pickguard and electronics. I have never regretted buying it to this day.
I think the best thing is to go play several of the guitars in your price range and pick one that you like the sound of.

|sniperfrommars1||lol. Weird post. Taylor makes some of the best, I especially love the koa wood ones. Best bang for your buck would be a nice alvarez though.|
