A little background: two guitars I’ve been itching for for a long time are: a 335 style, and a Martin acoustic. I’ve just bought a house which has had more than a few repairs and maintenance needed, so money is fairly tight. I popped into my local pawn shop, to see if there are any new or interesting guitars, and there was a Martin GPCRSGT. It was priced low enough that I figured I’d kick myself for letting it go, So I put it on layaway. I’m nearing the completion of my layaway, when I stumble upon a model of guitar I’ve not seen before... an Ibanez AS83-VLS which is a full-size 335 style guitar with abalone inlays outlines in mother of pearl, and the body has this really classy violin sunburst finish. It’s great, and about 2/3 the cost of the Martin. Both guitars more or less check the boxes for guitars I’m wanting. Both at great prices, I’d be getting some money back on the Ibanez... but, a decent acoustic is lacking in my collection. so... what would you do?
