If you can find a yamaha fg700ms, its a bit cheaper than the fg700s. The only difference is its a satin finsh rather than a gloss. In Canada the difference is around $20.

Have fun playing

I prefer the sound of the englemann top on the LL6, also the neck feels better.(my opinion). For finger picking the LL6 has a wider nut which makes it a bit easier. Check out seagull as well. If you...

Definitely go and try as many guitars as you can. And choose the one you think is best. In that price range, all are quality instruments, but best is relative to each person.
