Next year I'm thinking of upgrading my basic Crafter TN35 to something a bit better (the crafter is pretty good, but it is what it is). I'd sort of been looking favourably on the Faith Venus High Gloss - because it fits the size I want sound great. I've recently been looking at some demos of the Martin X-Series OOO models. Now they seem to sound great and seem very well made, but use some unusual materials (apart from a Sitka Spruce top). It's also a fair bit cheaper. So wonder if anyone has any experience of either. Also what else lies within my price range of £500-800. I am looking for electro for recording purposes. Also I should add I like the kind of sub dreadnought sizes and playability is a major issue as I am normally an electric player.
