I want an acoustic guitar that plays like an electric for doing solo/duo type material. I want to be able to bend an unwound G string up a whole step when needed and still have the guitar sound pretty full for singing and playing. I know there is a tradeoff between the fullness of sound with a heavier set of strings and having the playability of an electric. So this is a two part question: 1) Is there a particular brand you would recommend or... 2) Is it just a matter of finding an acoustic I like and re-stringing with a lighter gauge string and have a set up done? My budget is between 500-1000. Maybe more if I LOVE a particular guitar. What strategy would you recommend? Thanks.
