So, It's been over a year now. I'm curious ... what did you finally buy?
If I were buying in that price range, I would go for Either the Seagull Maritime SWS or one of the Epiphone Masterbilts
I remember my first foray into the "very first dread".....can be an intimidating experience for sure.....A really well made
dread ismade by, believe it or not, Epiphone. It's one of the guitars in the "Masterbuilt Series". I've been around guitars
since the mid-60's fnd have been very impressed at the build quality, tone, and projection of all the Masterbuilt's. Check
them out at a Gibson dealer. $650.00 may not seem a lot of money to spend to some people, but it's still hard-earned
cash. There so many builders out there now, and there's n o reason why you cant get a fine sounding " all solid wood"guitar.
Take time, and play as many
