I'm looking for something for casual home recording and playing outdoors - flat pick strumming
Jumbo or dreadnought, prefer no cutaway
Cosmetic condition is unimportant
No need for that preamp/tuner box on the top, but I can ignore it
up to $500
auckland pickup
There's a taylor 114e with a crack in the top for $600 on facebook. Seller says it doesn't impact the tone and you could probably shoot an offer then have it repaired as and when. That's a $1500 guitar when new. The electrics would make recording easier too.

If you're still looking that is.

Cheers guys, I'm trying to stay local and try before buying, especially with vintage gear. Still an acoustic noob. Someone take k1k1's harmony eh!

There is a Taylor Swift branded Baby Taylor on Trademe with a $250 starting bid. I wouldn't be a fan of the design & signature, but that is a hell of a lot of guitar for not much money.

I have an old Yamaha FG 160 from the early/mid 70's if that is any interest? ... it is a fantastic sounding and playing guitar

This will sound golden, (and due to its almost, as expensive as the actual guitar neck reset) ,will play amazing too.
Buy this.
My allocated, year long funds are called for but, goddamn it, i'd buy it!

This seems like a lot of guitar for the money.

I've got a Taylor Big Baby in the closet that doesn't get a lot of love. I'm in two minds about letting it go, but if you were interested and coming thru Hamilton I'm sure I could be persuaded to part with it. Needs a re-string.
Nothing to see here.

So Steve got the old Antoria going again and I just couldn't resist
It's a decent player now

Thanks everyone for the interest
