Buying New Acoustic - Seagull Entourage QI w/CW vs Natural Elements Mini Jumbo w/CW

Hi everyone.

I'm trying to decide between 2 acoustic guitars. Either the Seagull Entourage Rustic QI w/CW ($850 Aud) or a Natural Elements Mini Jumbo QI w/CW Wild Cherry ($910 Aud).

First of all, I went into the guitar store local to me not knowing about Seagull, the sales rep there showed me the Entourage after looking at a few Yamahas, but I really liked the Entourage out of the bunch of ones he showed me. So I went home and did alot of reasearch on it and was pretty much convinced that I wanted the Entourage.

So I went back In and got it as a Lay-by (Pay it off over three months, but got it at the sale price $850, instead of $1000.) but now I'm having doubts about it, I prefer the look of the Natural elements alot more. I want to know what the tone difference between the two would be, I have read that Mini Jumbo's may be more balanced?
Also if theres a suggestion on any other Acoustic electric guitars under or around $1000 Aud.

i haven't played the natural elements guitar.
my only advice is... if you really liked the tone of the entourage, take that one without hesitation. looks won't get you anywhere. once you sit down and start playing, you completely forget what it looks like.
so if you wanna love the guitar for what it does for you, get the entourage.
if you want one that's pretty hanging on the wall, get the NE.
need more gear and a lot more talent(courtesytuxs)

i am a huge fan of the seagull mini jumbos - i personally prefer the sound of the entrouage mini jumbo to the dread - but haven't tried the natural elements one yet. i must say that it looks sweet. on the other hand, if you really like the sound of the dread, there is that. you can't beat playing a guitar that sounds good to you.

btw, may i ask what country you're in? those entourage models sell for $500 in the u.s. and should sell for less in canada.

Yeah its does make a lot more sense to chose which one sounds better. I might go into the store this weekend and try the two side by side if I can and compare.

I'm in Australia Patticake. The prices are alot higher here which sucks
