After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best acoustic guitars for professionals for 2018 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
Yamaha FD01S Solid Top Acoustic Guitar
It has a mild brown front with dark chocolate-brown facets and returned, and a black pickguard, tuners are die-forged chrome and of decent first-rate.
The handiest element… lacking is a pickup and a digital tuner, which could now be observed on some guitars with similar fees. The guitar also has very colorful tones that make it appropriate.
The Low-E and B strings have a terrific treble, with the bass being heavy, as the sound of the strings being brilliant to some, however, these minor discrepancies may be without problems, despite the fact that I accept as true with these troubles won’t arise unless the neck altered. Overall, it’s appropriate for all players.
Fender Beginner Acoustic Guitar MC-1 ¾
The Fender MC-1 is actually a ¾ size guitar, with a 23.3” scale length and a slim 1.69” nut width, which makes it perfect for players with smaller hands. As well as children, this is just as much an adult’s guitar, as a smaller fretboard can be easier to navigate whatever your age (although those with considerably large hands may be better off looking for a full-size guitar).
The neck itself is made of nato,… with a rosewood fretboard and 18 frets. Sticking with tradition, there are no inlays on the fretboard, but dots exist on the side as a reference for beginners.
The MC-1 doesn’t feature any extraordinary design, but once again this is quite solid – a traditional classical style, with a laminated agathis top, and laminated sapele back and sides. Underneath, the top features X bracing, while the entire body sports an elegant satin finish and black binding. The headstock also shows off a gold screened Fender logo, which is a nice finishing touch.
Epiphone EAFTVSCH3 FT-100 Jumbo Acoustic Guitar
Whether you are a beginner looking for your first guitar, or a seasoned player looking for a travel or backup, the Epiphone DR-100 acoustic guitar is the thing for you. This puppy is ideal for those who were trying to walk the middle ground between expensive quality stuff and cheap twangers, which would cost you more in the long run, given the high probability of repairs and customization.
There’s not much to be done to improve… upon the classic dreadnought shape, so the folks over at Epiphone had only to decide on the woods combo, which in the case of the Epiphone DR-100 is a mahogany/spruce/rosewood mix.
The guitar features a Select spruce top with mahogany back and sides; while spruce gives a wide dynamic response and robust, meaty tone, mahogany is there to mellow it and give it some warmth and roundedness.
Taylor 114ce 100 Series Acoustic Guitar
Taylor’s beloved Grand Auditorium body style, featured on the 114ce, employs the width and depth of the dreadnought. But its narrower waist gives Grand Auditorium-bodied acoustic guitars a sleeker look with remarkable high-end response — helping to sharpen the definition of each note. And the comfort of this body style is a huge reason the 114ce is a popular instrument for live performance. From fingerpicking to strumming, the 114ce Grand Auditorium is a great choice for nearly every playing style.
The tonewoods chosen… for the 114ce offer detailed tone, strong projection, and durability. The layered walnut back and sides offer rigid construction that aids in the guitar’s pronounced tone and helps the instrument remain stable under fluctuating climate changes and rough handling. The combination of sapele and ebony on the neck ensures a ringing midrange with plenty of top-end detail. And the solid Sitka spruce top is one of the most popular wood choices for a powerful tone that is well balanced across the frequency range.
Taylor’s Expression System 2 uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup’s three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument’s acoustic energy as it’s transferred through the saddle. In concert with Taylor’s custom-designed preamp, the result is a natural acoustic sound with incredible dynamic range and responsiveness. Sweetwater’s guitar gurus are mightily impressed with Taylor’s Expression System 2.
Martin Road Series DRS1 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric
No steel-string guitar design has proven as enduring as the 14-fret dreadnought, which was introduced to the world by Martin in 1934. With its commanding voice, the dreadnought is at home in many styles of music, from bluegrass to folk to unplugged rock and beyond, and its silhouette has become the blueprint for the standard steel-string acoustic.
Martin has a comprehensive selection… of dreadnoughts in its catalog, but most of them don’t come cheap. A brand-new D-28, one of the most popular dreadnoughts, will currently set you back about $2,300. Luckily for those unable to afford a D-28, Martin recently unveiled the DRS1—a guitar with many similarities to the American-made D-15, but built in Martin’s Mexican facility.
Premium Martin guitars have long been made with spruce tops and rosewood bodies, while less expensive ones have been constructed of mahogany. But as mahogany has become threatened, some guitar makers are turning to sapele, a durable, attractively grained wood native to Africa.

These vibrations are then conveyed to the body of the guitar, and out into the air in and around the guitar body, giving you authentic reverb and chorus effects from inside the body.

Traditionally, acoustic-electric guitars have employed under-saddle piezo transducers, but Taylor goes about it a bit differently. Their Expression System-B uses a proprietary pickup behind the saddle. The pickup’s three individually calibrated, precisely positioned piezo-electric sensors respond organically to the instrument’s acoustic energy as it’s transferred through the saddle.
