Generally I agree. I was honestly surprised to find the sweet spot for

But to my dismay I found it not to be true. For campfire trips I still
take my 250 euro yamaha classical though..

I actually like the sound of the guitars I have made in
Quebec that are
sub $500 over some more expensive acoustics.

I've played and owned a large variety of high end, and
low end, gear, and beyond a certain price point it isn't
about sound anymore. I have a Gibson Les Paul Custom worth
about $2700 and I never take it out of the case because
I'm afraid It'll get scratched, that guitar is a piece of
art, my other electric was a $600 strat copy I got 15
years ago and it still sounds and plays amazing. I also
owned a $1500 Taylor 814ce and I prefer my $300 Epiphone.
My brother in-law plays custom built guitars int the $4000
range and I can till out play him on a pawn shop guitar
any day of the week. Given the choice between a functional
great sounding instrument that I can drag to a gig or up
around a campfire or the worlds most lusted after
instrument I'd go with the budget gear and enjoy the hell
out of it, I bet no one ever got drunk around a camp fire
deep in the Rocky Mountains with a Stradivarius and had
the best time of their life.
