A good guitar should have a mix of parameters such as volume, personality, projection, harmonics, resonance and sound queues, dynamic response, balance and naturalness to which the musician will attribute greater or less importance depending on his sensitivity and the areas of use of the instrument (executive techniques, preferred music genre, use in groups or as a soloist, etc.).

Recommendations on how to choose an electro acoustic guitar
The first thing is the neck. It’s really the most important thing to talk about because if the neck is not well planted or if it’s too heavy the guitar is impossible to play. An acoustic guitar, then, more than the classical guitar, has so many fret and these do not have to be rough but pleasant to play to the touch. In fact, if they are rough or protruding this means that the guitar is botched and they will hurt their fingertips rubbing on them not allowing you to work with passion to this thing.
Another thing is the distance of the strings from the neck. Because one must be easy to play and the sound must spread with a certain grace. If the strings are too close to the neck it is easy that the sound is choked and that it is not at all easy to make a chord of chords choked because they are close to the wood.
