    Anything Martin.
    Might wanna look into acoustic electrics also, epiphone has a casino around $500.
    They also make a es335 copy that is nice but I forget what its called.
    What type of music are they influenced by?

    Best action for sure. Taks are great for that, they feel almost like electrics.

    You should tell us what kind of music they are playing. Biggest differences in acoustic guitar styles will be Country, Classical, Blues, Jazz, and Pop.
    Thats a good point the style of music can play a big part in which guitar you want to buy. But overall I think if a company makes a good country guitar, then there rock or jazz guitars will be equally as good. I have had a few Fender acoustics 6 and 12 string. and all had great sound aside from one. It was a Fender Squier and made in Mexico.

    Mike, I also agree that the Gibson line up is loaded with awesome guitars. They would be my next choice or recommendation. But I didnt want to give to, too many options.. and between the two a Squier and a Epiphone, Both the OFF brands for there company... the Epiphone is the better sounding acoustic instrument for the money.

    Im sure that with a little research and some shopping around, you can fins some great guitars in your price range.

    On a side note, my latest guitar is a Seagull made in Canada. Its a beautiful guitar and plays and sounds amazing!!! I know that really narrows it down for ya! lolol

    Off topic a bit but I used my buddys 70's guild with terribly high action strictly for slide guitar, bad action is a great excuse to pick up a slide

    Thanks to all who chimed in. I am going to process all information and get back to you guys. I think one is studying a classic guitar and the other is into alternative rock.

    For the Classicalist:
    I picked this up at a Guitar Center and played it in College when I was a guitar major. My professor checked it out and said it was the best tone he'd ever heard for a guitar under $500. It really plays like a guitar far beyond it's price. The harmonics are very good, the action is consistent throughout the board, and (not that it matters) it has great resale value--I used it for 2 years, sold it for $200 and convincing the guitar shop owner to buy it took all of 30 seconds. It is a little on the quiet side, but also my fingernails are thin. Don't plug it in, it sounds absurd. But it is a great great great buy. Smells good too.

    Are there many guitars still made in the US in this price range?

    If I remember correctly, when I worked at gc several years back American made guitars were starting at 1k or at least very close to that.

    Also I don't play classical style guitar but I've played on a couple ibanez nylon stringed guitars like johndoughy linked and they were very nice. Great tone indeed.

    If that's a real consideration man I implore you to check out Breedlove Guitars that I mentioned before. These guys are literally what Marko Industries would be if you were really into music, had a staff, and went global: immaculately constructed hand-made guitars, made in America (Bend, Oregon), that are--despite being a relative newcomer--respected by critics, hobbyists, and hardcore players alike.

    Trust me. These guys are right up your alley. And you can get two for $1K.
