    I've been in the market for a new acoustic for a while now. I was hoping for some input on what would be a great guitar for recording for around $1,500-$2,000. I don't like Taylors, so any other brand recommendation is welcomed :) i was thinking of the Gibson j-100. Any thoughts??

    Thanks!

    For that kind of scratch, you can be into a high(er) end Larrivee.

    I like the J100 a lot, but it might have too big a sound for recording. I would look for a 00 or 000 size for that purpose. Having said that, a good J45 is hard to beat.

    I'd look for a vintage Gibson to your taste...I've got a really great 1969 J-50 (replaced the adjustable saddle)...old wood sounds better...

    I tried out the songwriter, but thought the j-100 sounded a little better. I haven't tried many Larrivee's. Any one with studio experience with a Larrivee?

    I would love a vintage gibson, but i also need something with a pickup for some live shows.
