Looking at second hand, so price is less of an issue. What should I be looking at?

I thought Fender were good until DP said that he'd heard they make cheap stuff too.

My son started with a Yamaha acoustic and his tutor always commented on how good it was

Ooh, hadn't even thought of Yamaha!

I was taught on a Yamaha (one for beginners- strings closer together)

The only brand I was told to avoid by the school band director was Ashton.

Anybody heard of Tanglewood?

DS (9) has a Tanglewood - it was about £130. It has a nice tone to it. He started with a bottom of the range Redwood when he was 6.
