I always think it's a good idea to check out some second hand deals out there. You might get a perfectly good guitar for cheap that might've been expensive to begin with and it'll be better value for money.

But there is a plus side to the FG700MS's thinner finish which is more resonation and faster aging.

i agree.... i think the thinner finish is better because it allows the top to resonate more. i am not terribly familiar with these exact two models o guitar, i was just making a generalization.

i would think you would want the lighter finish for poppy music. music like that generally has alotta ringing highs and mids.

For $300, you can't get much looks wise. Unless you buy a crappy Ibanez.

you may think you want a really good looking guitar now.... but down the road once you learn to play it... you'll be much happier if you bought a good sounding guitar. TONE > APPEARANCE

Added the Samick Beaumont. Played this guitar today and it was definately a contender. Solid cedar top w/ rosewood back and sides (very odd combination but sounded very good).

DOnt' forget..... buying a guitar from a music store is just like buying a car - haggle with them and ask for the best price. They all have room to move on the price. I just bought a brand new ibanez hollow body that had a sticker on it of 399, haggled for a minute or 2 and got it for 299 - plus he threw in a nice padded gig bag.
