Hey, I've never played the guitar before but am very interested in learning. I stopped by a pawn shop today and fell in love with a $230ish Simon & Patrick S&P 6 Cedar acoustic guitar. It sounded much better than the other two there. I also found one online for $125 but it is a S&P 6 Mahogany/Cedar and the description of the guitar does not say anything about the shape of the guitar (it's also from a pawn shop). The photos of it look fine though.
I'm going to try out some guitars at a nearby store for variety, but if I keep coming back to the great sounding Simon & Patrick should I chance it on the cheaper online one that I've never touched? I'd love to not spend $230 especially since I'm not sure yet if I'll stick with guitars. But maybe this guitar is worth it? It has a little bit of wood missing from the top layer of the front of the guitar but looks/sounds fine otherwise (in my inexpert opinion). There's also a Fender DG7 for $70 w/carrying case available near me via Craigslist.

Here are reviews for both the cedar and mahogany/cedar:

Simon & Patrick are nice guitars. They are part of the Godin family of guitars. If you are not sure you will stick with it and want a good sounding guitar, take a look at Yamaha. This one sounds and plays very nice. The price is right too. It's available in a natural color(Spruce) even though it's not shown.

Thanks! I'll write that down and see if I can try one out in a store
