    Valeria is beautiful. Describing the guitar almost sounds like he's describing Valeria. "beautiful body, beautiful tone..." LOL. That is a compliment to Valeria.

    On the PRS, the warmth and the ´trebley´ sound difference is caused by what your using to hit the strings with and the dynamic. Most guitars will sound that way if you use flesh to pick softly, and then strum hard with a pick.

      This top five guitars are the best selling, not the best guitars. And my guess is they were best selling because they are affordable for the majority of people, whereas Gibson and Taylor are not.

      These were the most wanted, most sold 5 acoustic guitars, that came out in 2018.
      Numbers are numbers, hard to argue. :-)

    Are the sides and back of the PRS aresolid? cant find the information anywhere

    • MiegmaishMenas

      Amit Sapir I’d look at L series Yamahas, they have a few all solid guitars under (or slightly above) 1000€

      Sounds like a good plan! That list will be really short though. There's not a lot of all solid acoustic guitars under 1000€. Dudes and dudesses, like this comment if you want an all solid acoustic video from us. ;-) //Kris

      Thanks Nic! I used to sing Kickapoo on parties to raise some lady-attention. All I achieved was dudes shouting the lyrics together with me. After realizing it was a total fail I stopped doing that. Haha! //cheers, Kris
