When it comes to buying guitars, the sky is the limit. If you’re looking for an affordable, playable, and quality acoustic – check out the Dean Tradition Exotic. I’ve had one for several years, and my other guitar playing friends always expect that I paid more for it than I did. It didn’t set me back all that much and it still sounds great and has a real cool finish. While I’m definitely pining for a higher end guitar myself, I highly recommend the Dean Tradition Exotic to beginner and intermediate players.
