F-65 (1978)

An underrated oldie. 

Fender are known less for their acoustic guitars. That does not mean their acoustic guitars are something to overlook. The F-65 is a Japanese made, laminated wood guitar, which can be bought with a few hundred bills and let us tell you, it is an awesome sounding dreadnought. A lot of punch and body comes out of this one. Check your preferred second hand shop, you might get lucky.
