If you have some extra cash laying around, check out MusiciansFriend's stupid deal of the day:

Alvarez MD5000

This baby is made with solid Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, and topped with Engelmann spruce! Try pricing a Taylor with these specs and you'll end up well over 3K!

MF "regular" price (and going street price) is $1999+, so the stupid price is a very decent 50% off.

Specs from MF:
* Body Style: Dreadnought
* Back/Sides: Solid Brazilian rosewood
* Top: Solid Engelmann Spruce
* Fingerboard: Ebony
* Fingerboard Inlay: 12 F Oval
* Body Binding: Maple/Herringbone
* Soundhole Rosette: Abalone
* Fingerboard/Headstock
* Binding: None
* Tuning Machines: Gold Die Cast
* Finish: Natural

EDIT: I may post a review, but by then it will be too late to get it at this price!

These are apparently made in China, which is generally not such a good thing for guitars, but Alvarez/Yairi is a great company and I do expect these high-end models to be flawless.

With that said, the pieces of wood alone is probably worth this much!
