If you’re after a very loud and proud, high quality, solid cedar top, single cutaway, dreadnought-sized guitar with Fishman electronics, I would encourage you to take a close look and listen to the DCA100CEQ by Artist Guitars – it’s a steal! This example played beautifully and sounded LOUD and clear straight out of the box. I believe you can buy one, case included, for under AUD$500. That, my friends, seems like a bargain to me.
