I live in Oakland in the SF Bay so there's no where around for me to try out guitars in person really. I'm looking for a quality guitar preferably under 2k. I'm a musician already and don't want a starter instrument. This is my first gypsy guitar.
Only thing in my area is Gitane guitars, e.g. this DG-300 https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/msg/6057635898.html
From what I read and expect Asian guitars are very inferior so my next choice is to look through the classifieds here, but there's a lot of stuff in my range and it's a bit of a gamble, so I'd really appreciate some advice! Here are some I'm looking at:
