I have an AD20/SM.  It's a fine guitar, Korean made Breedlove design.  For the $400 I paid for it, I'd put it up against any other in that price range.  Very unique sound.  You can really feel the whole body vibrate while you play it.  

The only thing about the Atlas is the very thin top with the Breedlove support system.  I don't recall off hand what they call it.  My AD20 seams to be very susceptible to humidity changes.  The top moves alot, going from no sting buzz to having string buzz.  Some days good, some days not.  At least that has been my experience.  Of couse I do have it set up for low string height.

It's for sale.  $300

For the price of an AC25 without case, since they don't come with one, I'd go for a Larrivee 03 series.

Just my opinion, ymmv

Try to get your hands on both models your interested in-I just got a OM03R and its great but I played it quite a bit before buying it. I've played others that were OK however each guitar is unique. Although I must admit the Larrivees are pretty consistent. The Atlas guitars I've played were very nice and best thing I've seen in their price range.

You might check with Dave at guitaradoptions.com, one of the dealers who frequents here.

He is a Breedlove Dealer, #1 according to his website. i took a look but he didn't have any Atlas' listed. If he had access to what you're looking for I'm sure he would record it for you. he does it all the time.

thanks for the help and suggestions, ill definitely look into it. Bill Warmoth of Artisan guitars from this forum sent me an e-mail and played it for me over the phone, but the sound quality wasnt too great.  He was awesome though in taking the time to help me.  So  Bill wherever you are, thank you!

The Avalon guitars I have played had thin necks.  Some people really like those, but I don't so much.  If neck feel is important to you then consider this carefully.

James! I caught you on this forum!  Of course...here, you're going to be a bit of a bias...don't you think?  Seriously, if you want quality, go Larrivee.  

(for the rest of you, jsuk and I are friends), we have found it very hard to find any atlas' to play in the entire LA area.  Anyone know where we can find any around here?  We tried McCabe's and Buffalo Bros., but I don't know any other decent non-GC guitar shops.
