Great price for a spruce and maple jumbo.

looks good on paper. not solid wood, no flame, but also great price point

I have played several and hated them all. Laminate top guitars sound "tinny," and I've noticed a lot of better jumbos also not sounding right. Every once in a while, a good one comes along, but overall they lack the power and richness of a good acoustic.

I'd pass on one and snatch up a Yamaha FG800D SDB.

I've had one for maybe 10 years. Made in Korea, I bought it used, so no idea how old it is. It looks great, build quality is excellent, it plays better than a lot of my more expensive acoustics, and it sounds as near to a J200 as I could afford at the time. I've also recorded with it, with decent results. I would certainly keep it over my Gibson J180 EC.

From my reading of the specs -- the EJ200 cutaway model has a solid spruce top -- the lower priced "artist" model -- no cutaway and electronics -- has the laminated top.

Here's an alternative - solid Engleman spruce top - nice flamed back and sides.

More pricey than the Epi but still in the realm of possibility.

Anyone know these?

Sierra Tahoe jumbo

The Sierra Tahoe is an off brand, an unknown. I wouldn't invest that much. Too risky. Maybe if you found a used one - should be able to pick it up for $200 or so...

Jimmy, I did a set up on one of the cutaways a couple weeks ago. Very nice guitar for the money IMO. I think it would open up a bit tone wise with some play as the top sounded a bit tight.

Over all the fit and finish was excellent however the inlay work was not quite as nice as I would have hoped......still for a $400 jumbo very nice.
