Acoustic guitar price vs sound?

  • This post refers to acoustic guitars since that's what I'm playing.

    Is there a linear or specific jump in quality between guitar price and sound as both go up. I know expensive guitars usually provide a better sound but when you would put it in graph, would it be a linear line or have specific jumps between price segments?

    I started out with a $70 dollar guitar which was fine for the basics. I then bought and still have an way better sounding guitar which cost about $350. The jump in quality is amazing.

    I was thinking about buying an even better guitar but I was wondering how much the gap in sound would be when I would buy a $600, $800 or even $1000 dollar guitar. Would this blow my mind as big as my first upgrade, would it be worth the investment?

    I know trying out in guitar stores is a good way to measure the quality but I'm sure there has to be a general outline on sound quality and price.

    Thank you for reading my post and I hope you can help me.

  • I have 5 different acoustic guitars ranging from $100 to $1500. I'm not sure if there is any way to accurately place a quality to value ratio. However, my Fender acoustic ($900) sounds just as good as my $1500 Gibson. The main difference I'd place on it is playability. The Gibson seems to play significantly easier than all my other guitars. I'm no expert though! Hope this helps!
