I'm looking to buy an acoustic electric and I'm not sure what model to get. I've had a bad experience with an Ibanez (see my other thread https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?p=17293425#post17293425) and want to try a different brand. I'm in college, so my budget is pretty low, $375 or less probably. My dad has an Ovation and I like it, but i'm not sure if there's something else out there that's better.

I'm not a fancy player. I strum and sometimes pick, but never do any super complicated songs. Guitar is a hobby of mine, not a way of life. Still, I want something that's of good quality and has good PLAYABILITY. I hate having to press down like crazy to do some chords. I want to be able to do a barred Fm7 without too much struggle, if you know what i mean.

What would you guys recommend?
ovations cos they are cool
