But yes, for the most part the 'tone' is pretty much there. Which is why the really great, warm & rich sounding acoustics are $2k+; and why others are $200. Night and day difference, not only in playability but also tone.

My dad and I have identical late 70's Yamaha guitars (which were great quality back then) that really have great warm tonality; good volume, easty top play. Great guitar. He also has a Martin ( I can't recall the model), smaller auditorium style, and it doesn't have as much punch - but it does provide excellent, bright response; perfect for flat-picking etc.

He also has a great Huss & Dalton that is fantastic.

I wish I had eleventy billion dollars, I'd have tons of guitars.
