You should at least look at the Yamaha FG700S: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guit...acoustic-guitar

and its acoustic electric counterpart the FGX700SC: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guit...electric-guitar before you choose.

i wouldn't buy any of those. if you need to stay below $200, i'd suggest a yamaha f335 - we blind tested it against several other guitars in its class, and it sounded the best to several people. if you can go up a little, Captaincranky's suggestion of a yamaha fg700s would be your best bet, as it has a solid top and very good sound in its class.

If you can find the yamaha FG700ms its cheaper than the 700s, because it has a satin finish rather than laquer.
If you are just starting out, you could try renting a guitar. That way if playinjg isn't your thing the investment is less. If you do like playing most shops have rent to own programs.
