I have one acoustic, thinking about buying another one like for when family comes over to play, etc. The one I have is a Yamaha SJ-180 from the 80's. It belonged to a good friend who took just a few lessons when he was a kid but it never took. He just gave it to me. I think it's an 'ooo' sized. The internet seems to describe it as "between an OM (Orchestra Model) and a 0000/M Grand Auditorium size." In any case, the important bit is that it's smaller and slightly thinner than a dreadnought. http://acousticpickers.blogspot.com/2013/02/yamaha-sj-180.html Years ago, my wife (I think for a milestone-type birthday) bought me a beautiful Gibbo J-45. Sounded great. I sold it because the smaller Yamaha was/is for me far more comfortable to play. I'd love to buy used, but would consider new depending on price point. I feel like this can be something I can get done for a couple/few hundred dollars. I'd like to find something like the Yamaha -- doesn't have to be anything special, just a well made acoustic guitar that's comfortable to play and sounds good. There have to be tons of options out there, I just don't know what brands/models to look for. What guitars do you have/know of that will fit the bill? Thanks..!
