Honestly I almost never play acoustic anymore. I have had the same old Japanese 1970s Epiphone acoustic I learned on back in the early '80s which I played the hell out of back in the day. But I haven't touched it in nearly 15 years. That corresponds to the time I got married, bought a house, and had a daughter all in the space of about two years. Just no time or space for guitar. But I'm past all that and teaching my kid to play so I dug it out of the closet and the top had warped upwards at the bridge. I had forgotten to detension the strings for storage mostly because I hadn't expected it to be locked up for so long. The action was way high and my daughter thought it was too large for her to hold. So it was time for a new guitar to share between the two of us. Looking for a smaller guitar I came across these new PRS SE P20 acoustics. Parlor size but the demos had very nice sound as far as I was concerned. And great looks with front and back binding, neck bending, and ebony fretboard. Comparable cost to the equivalent cheap small Taylor Mini so I decided to get the PRS mostly because my daughter liked the birds. Whatever makes her want to practice is good with me! The best news is it's a goldliocks sized guitar for her: just right. She wanted a natural mahogany top but they sent me the wrong one, black satin with natural mahogany back and sides. I preferred this but she was pretty specific that she wanted the natural one. Well, she decided after seeing it that she was okay with black because it looks very cool so I don't have to send it back. So now it's min... I mean ours. Having fun actually playing acoustic again for a change! This thing is well made, frets are perfect, no flaws that I can spot. And sounds very nice, less of a big booming sound than I had before but I'm playing it in my music room and living room, it's plenty loud for my needs. And tonally it's very nice, rich sound which settles into the mids range. Really good guitar!
