What are the differences between t70, t80 and t100. I'm leaning towards dreadnought cutaway guitar.

Never buy a guitar unseen. Need to inspect neck for warpage.

After hemming and hawing over these Lag guitars for several of these deals, I decided to pull the trigger on a T270. Very nice instrument. Nice live top, bright but a little bit of low end too. Fit and finish is very nice, but a couple aesthetic gripes: the front edge of the guitar is routed so it gently slopes, making the edge comfy, but the back rear edge binding is a sharp corner which digs into you a little more than I'd like. Also, the routed edge isn't consistent, it stops almost where the body meets the neck. Dunno if that's standard with softer edges or what. Tuner gears are not super accurate. Some guitars you feel like they make micro adjustments which makes tuning quick, but these seem to be less accurate and you can adjust and not notice a change, or over/undershoot your adjustments.
Fishman electric system seems good. Like some of the aesthetic like the battery cover and flatter dials vs knobs on the tone controls.

Overall definitely feels like a guitar worth $500 -$600, not sure if I'd say it is equal with an $800 - $1k guitar (I'm talking about what musicians actually pay, not list prices, so if you find a nice used guitar, what is it really worth to you?)

I am happy with mine for all the small gripes, and will be keeping it. If all you want is a nice guitar to step up from a cheapie, which is what I did (and I've played quite a few at guitar center to get a feel for what I wanted) you'll most likely enjoy these. If you are a working guitarist, or collect instruments, you might like what Lag does, or you might have some bigger issues with them than I did. But I think for the money, you are getting a lot of value.

One last note: I bought this as a "used" grade E+ which is essentially open box kind of rating system Adorama has. I couldn't see any flaws with it, but a few minor things that MIGHT be? Idk, these might be really slightly blemish new guitars, as it doesn't look like anyone has actually played it, but I could be wrong. Pretty satisfied all around with the purchase.
