Are you planning on physically trying these out for yourself or ordering? You’re going to get different opinions from different people and never really get a solid answer. It’s best to try them out for yourself if possible. It’s not just about sound either… feel is just as important. Looks play a role as well for some folks.
I recently checked out a small music store in my travels. The place looked like a hole in the wall from the outside, but was quite nice inside. There were four different Blueridge guitars that I tried… one sounded stellar! I mean, better than most Martins I’ve played and other high end guitars. It was literally amazing. The other three were awful. I couldn’t believe they were all from the same company. Yes, they were different models but I couldn’t get over the difference. I believe the one I liked was either a BR-160A or a BR-70A. I’m pretty sure it was the 70, but I didn’t care for all the Abalone. The sound was incredible though. I’ve never tried Recording King or Eastman but my point is, if at all possible, go play them before you buy. Many people have went in to music stores with something specific in mind and left with something they may hadn’t even considered.
If you can’t physically try them out, the advice you’re getting from the folks here is good. They know music as well as the instruments they play or buy and sell. And DR is right… Look at what you’re getting for the value.
Good luck and let us know what you decide!
