Well, after a ton of great suggestions on a less expensive acoustic, I bought an Art&Lutherie Roadhouse Parlor. What a sweet feeling AND sounding guitar! Despite its size, it’s really loud and “boomy”. I think that the soundhole being in a different position with the 12 feet may have something to do with that. This is my first 12 fret guitar, and it’s kinda odd to play right now, but hopefully that’ll change. I can’t get a pic to upload, but for the money, it’s great!
