From briefly perusing here, it seems a lot of you play high end expensive guitars. I don't. What I'm looking for is good guitar for 500 or less. I live in a rural area and will have to order over the internet so no option to head to a music store and try a bunch out. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them. An Epiphone Texan looks pretty good. I'm not a very good player but I'm practicing and learning and trying to get better. The guitar I have now is pretty cheap and I really would like to upgrade and 500 is about the upper limit of what I want to spend at this point.
