I went to my local GC last week with plans to buy another brand's solid-top model as an upgrade to an all-laminate guitar my teenager currently plays. I hadn't heard of Breedlove's Discovery line before, but I saw one on the rack and it was in the right price range, so I took it down and gave it a strum. I looked at the price tag again, shook my head, and gave it another strum. Then I took it immediately to the cash register.

These guitars are proof of just how good "entry level" instruments can be. Find one and play it.
