    Hi Harry,

    Under $1K, your best bet is an Altamira. See:

    Everything in that price range is Asian made. The Alatamiras are much closer to the sound and feel of the high-end French guitars than anything else you'll find. Amazing projection and the tone is quite nice for the price.

    Harry, if you'll be at Django in June I have a starter guitar which I might be willing to sell you there if you can't find anything else in your price range.. It's a Chinese made Selmer copy called an "Aria"... Let me know.

    I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    Michael knows whereof he speaks. You can't beat the Altamira in the sub-1K price range, unless you find a really good deal on a secondhand guitar.
